Notes / Commercial Description:

Appearance – Half finger head over a clear, nearly opaque brown body.

Aroma – Roasted malt, cocoa, slight bright fruitiness, anise, light hops.

Taste – Dark roasted malt, burnt barley, hints of coffee and bitter chocolate, light hop resins and a long bitter finish.

Mouthfeel – Surprisingly thin for something so heavy in flavor.

Overall – A little too charred for my liking, and too light in body.

A 22 fl. oz. bomber, bottled on 14th January 2016. Poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Black in colour with a one finger dark tan head that had pretty good retention and left some nice lacing.

Aroma: Roasted malts, chocolate, cocoa, espresso, liquorice, anise, pine with a hint of citrus peel and char.

Taste: Roasty, char, chocolate, cocoa and liquorice with some piney hops coming through at the end.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall: Nice to sip, and even after almost two years, the hops are still coming through quite clearly on the finish, it kind of reminded me a bit of a strong Black IPA.

First had poured from 22-oz. bomber, bottle stamped "BOTTLED ON 02/08/17," into faceted mug. This is a huge, complex and quite remarkably but possibly too-balanced Russian Imperial Stout. A Russian Stout should bang the table with its (clown) shoe.
