Look out below, as you pour out this tarry RIS, that breaks density and flavor and ABV barriers.
If you like them tarry and thick, this is 100 Fidy.
a) Dark, thick, tarry, with sticky volumes of lace and a pudding disposition.
s) All of the Russian fruity, malty and char characteristics expected in RIS. Dry herbs, fennel, wood shop support the aroma.
T) Complex and abundant, I could sip like brandy: toasted marshmallow, molasses, nougat, carmelized scallops, espresso, bittersweet chocolate, walnut and charred toast, and real brownie brittles scrapped off the pan.
Campfire and cognac. Licorice and Sambuca liqueur.
F) Chewy, cherry, dark chocolate box.
O) Oh let's taste off all the BIG RIS and see who wins, this one is the master nemesis.

A fine canned stout, roasty, sweet, and boozy.

This delicious bomb of a stout comes in a can.Looks black. The end of the S.R.M. color chart. Smells popping out of the glass are cacao,vanilla buttered biscuit,blueberry,toffee. Tastes well balanced, somewhat viscous, fluffernutter, mildly vinous. Feels smooth,well carbonated and well, really boozy at 13% A.B.V. . This is one strange tasty brew. A good interpretation of an Imperial Stout. Wow!

Don't let the brightly colored, playful, pastel can art fool you. What lurks inside couldn't be darker, more intense or more ominous. Teaming up with Casita Cerveceria, the Stillwater brewers collaborate an imperial stout with the "Russian" fruity, malty and burnt character that's seldom seen in contemporary stout.

On Fleek is certainly that, pouring an onyx black hue and capped with a tarnish sandy froth. Extreme roast, savory alcohol and burnt sugars intimidate the nose while the tethers of vinous fruit and fennel tingle the senses. Sweet roast carries the impressions of burnt marshmallow, molasses and nougat across the early palate.

As the tongue becomes awash with roasted grains and stewing sweetness, the more robust and savory flavors bring aspects of espresso, bittersweet chocolates, black walnut and burnt toast in an overcooked brownie fashion. Hints of campfire come in succession with red grape, fennel and cherry flavors offering a pitted fruit and brandy complexity. Light licorice and coffee liqueur coat the late palate with the deep and decadent finish looming.

Lavishly full and reasonably chewy, the beer's texture is also marshmallow-like, broken up only by the acrid nature of roast, the thinning of alcohol and a peppery spice to balance the sweetness and temper the stout's viscosity. A long linger of smoky chocolate and brandy soaked cherries extend nearly as long as the espresso roast.

Look- pours pitch black with a 1 finger brown head; ample lacing

Smell- chocolate fudge, espresso, vanilla and booze

Taste- follows the nose closely; getting sweet chocolate, burnt espresso, and a little vanilla. Finishes pretty boozy with a quick bitter kick

Feel- full bodied and creamy, pretty low carbonation

Overall- intense imperial stout w/an amazing chocolatey nose; sweet, but with a nice bitterness to provide a little balance

A very nice offering. Pours beautifully. Rich, dark, cocoa colored head. Liquid is deepest brown.
Smells like a traditional RIS, less sweet, less barrel than what is typical these days.
Taste follows nicely. Reminds me of my first experiences with this style-akin to the original Old Rasputin. The sweetness is subdued by that earthy, slightly peaty, licorice leaning malt flavor.
Mouthfeel is chewy enough for me.
Overall, this harkens back to the old days.
