Delicious stout. I wish it was not seasonal. I think it is available for only about a month.

Had it on tap at Sun King here in Indy.

5$ for a 12oz fill.

Price aside. It was an excellent brew.

It was Nitro Timmie that i had. Filled the glass with dark black color and a brown head about two fingers thick. Good persistent head. Excellent lacing. Opaque inside the glass.

Smell: A lot of alcohol is apparent. Regular roasted black malts, caramel and chocolate flavors. Some vanilla and a lot of malt flavors. A lot of burnt malts flavor. Slight hop presence as well.

Taste: Very much the nose. Alcohol is dizzying. Some dark dry fruits, may be. Vanilla, caramel, dark malts and chocolate. Bitterness is apparent due mainly to hops and burnt malts. A very good hop profile used as well.

Mouth feel :Very full bodied solid stout. Very thick. Low on carbonation. Very heavy drinking. Astringency is derived from alcohol, burnt malts and hops. Provides a lot of warmth, again mainly due to alcohol.

Overall. An excellent nitro adjusting, very solid russian imperial stout.

grabbed at the brewery a couple weeks ago.

poured cold and pitch black from the growler to a founder's brewing snifter with a big frothy two finger dark mocha head with nice retention a full coverage lace to the rim of the glass.

aroma of oak, sweet, ripe dark fruit, chocolate and a hint of espresso roast in the wayback.

wow - huge, and unexpected given the aroma, coffee and nice mellow vanilla in the first cold sips. brown sugars, and maybe a bit of burnt dark toffee.

smooth and super creamy, great-big bodied, minimal carbonation, sweet on the tongue followed by a very mellow bitter after.

drinkable - hmmm... maybe a couple pints or three if you're sitting still by the fire.

big thumbs up on this one.

A seasonal offering, Timmie is one of my favorite Sun King beers and I always look forward to its return. It is near black, oily and thick looking like any good RIS. What hits me in the smell is a bit of smokiness and molasses. These show up again in the taste, while smoothly integrated with chocolate, coffee, and roasty bitterness in the finish. A great, warming winter beer flavor. Mouthfeel is nice and thick while not being too syrupy. Overall, this is an excellent RIS and offers a little something different.
