A- Poured black with nice lacing and dark brown head

S- Smelled of roasted malt and sweet caramel

T- Tasted of dark roasted malt, some coffee and chocolate, with no hoppy flavor but a bit of bitterness.

M- Nice full, thick, creamy mouthfeel

Overall a well-balanced beer with nice full body and great roasty flavor. Would definitely get again.

Had on tap at Haven Gastropub, served in a 5 oz tulip glass. Reviewed from notes.

A- Thin tan head, deep dark color. Thin, wispy lacing.

S- Roast malts, booze, coffee smells.

T- Coffee and roast malts, hides the booze very well. Wonderfully complex.

M- Very light bodied surprisingly. Can't tell the carbonation. Seems light.

O- Good Russian Imperial Stout, though I've had better.
