Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed with a monstrous amount of malt and combined with aggressive American hops, this beer is powerful and complex and designed to age. Smokiness is subtle but present and blends nicely with the rich, dark flavors.

Recently bottled poured into a snifter. Allowed to get to room temp throughout the tasting.

A: Pours a thick black/VERY dark brown viscous with a 2 finger dark mocha brown head. Great head retention with nice lacing on the glass. Carbonation is evident.

S: Surprisingly some slight piney notes, along with slightly burnt coffee, roasted beans, chocolate. Really sweet aroma, and most are muted. Not overly aromatic.

T: Sweet sweet piney notes, man really sweet esp as it warms up. Getting a slight coffee bitterness, with some raosted malt and slight coffee taste.

M: Thinner than I would like but does have a nice smooth creamy feel. My sips tend to change as I drink depending on the volume/temp of the beer. Goes from a VERY sweet mouthfeel to a quite harsh bitter finish.

O: Pretty meh, not terrible but below avg for a ten dollar bottle RIS. Stone's IRS blows this out of the water for example and is only ~$6 a bottle here. Slightly disjointed, thin body and the flavors are muted except in the sweet/overly bitter areas. also off put by the piney aromas for an Imperial stout. Wouldn't buy again, nor would i recommend it. However not the worst RIS out there, and if you're a Clown Shoes fan boy I would imagine you would check it out.

Bomber to glass.

A: Pours black with 1-finger thick mocha head which leaves semi-rings and spots.

N: Roasty, dark chocolate with some vanilla and hints of dark fruits and floral notes.

T: Roasted malts, smokey with a slight char, cocoa powder.

M: Full body and medium carbonation. Thick and rich. Roasty finish.

O: Straight forward RIS. I prefered Vampire Slayer.
