BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Good People Brewing Company
Alabama, United States
goodpeoplebeer.com

Style: Russian Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
A huge, viscous, full-bodied, dark as night, imperial stout yet somehow amazingly drinkable. Big aromas and flavors including dark fruits, roasted malts, dark chocolate, and spiced rum. Not for the faint of heart. Big but surprisingly nimble, as it can compliment any course of a meal.

78 IBU

This is a truly nice beer. I hate it that I had to get it in a milk jug at dee's package store. The beer is not yet bottled.
Appearance is very black with brown highlights to it, a surprisingly lighter head to it though nearly a light brown.
Smell was nice chocolate and coffee notes with maybe a little smell like raisin.
taste was great. I tasted coffee/nut with a bit of chocolate and was expecting to taste the raisin or some fruit but did not. I did smell the raisin though
mouthfeel it was perfect stout feel to it. A light chewy taste, thick feel not watery, and very creamy.
drinkability would recommend this beer it is a good one if you like stouts.

Poured from 32 oz growler into snifter.

A: Pours midnight black with two finger mocha colored head with long retention and leaving spotty lacing.

S: Roasted malts, coffee, vanilla, and licorice.

T: Rich dark roasted malts, bitter coffee, chocolate, and vanilla.

M: Full bodied with a slightly creamy and bitter finish.

O: Very nice RIS. I would love to see this regularly bottled or canned.

Smell: faint coffee and mild hops.
Appearance: black as dark roast coffee.
Flavour: follows the smell - rich coffee, moderate hop bitterness, lingering coffee aftertaste.
Palate: this is a rich, dense beer that presents to the mouth more like an incredible coffee syrup.
Overall: this is a truly outstanding beer - world class.

Thanks to nhudson for this rarity! From notes.

Pours thick and sludge-like. Head was a very light tan color. Milk chocolate comes through a lot in the aroma, with some charred notes, nice coffee, and molasses. Tastes more char and burnt, which I like. Bitter coffee and chocolate are very nice. Feels chewy and full. creamy and very low carbonation.

Great brew...I'd go to Bama to score it.

Beer from Alabama, this should be good? Thanks to Alex for sharing.

A - Dark brown beer with a bit of a tan head that had nice retention.

S - Roasted malts, dark fruits, some nuts, little chocolate and coffee. Pretty pleasant, better than I was expecting.

T - Taste is relatively in line with the nose. Little more chocolate and some sweeter fruits than darker. Gets a little charry in there at the end.

M - A little thin, sickly-sweet finish.

O - Pretty solid beer actually, would drink it again, go Alabama?
