Smokey and coffee in perfect smell balance introduces this beer. Simply very nice smell. Taste follows suit perfectly, but introduces slight dark chocolate as well. Finishes super smokey and dark chocolate. Pretty easy drinking and no overpowering alcohol presence. Really a nice beer, stands up to most any well rated non barrel aged RIS I've ever had.

Meh at best. We opened this one first of the four bottles (3 variants) and it wasn't bad, nothing great but not off putting. Not much carbonation.

12 ounce bottle into snifter; no bottle dating, but is a recent distributed release. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky tan head with amazing retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts the whole glass. Thick soapy lacing clings on around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Insane appearance. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, molasses, nuttiness, toasted biscuit, and dark/brown bread; with lighter notes of smoke, charcoal, licorice, raisin, prune, fig, date, leather, tobacco, herbal, pepper, and roast/toast/smoky earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/black/roast/bready malts, molasses, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, molasses, nuttiness, toasted biscuit, and dark/brown bread; with lighter notes of smoke, charcoal, licorice, raisin, prune, fig, date, leather, tobacco, herbal, pepper, and roast/toast/smoky earthiness. Light-moderate roast/char and herbal/peppery hop bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, molasses, nuttiness, toasted biscuit, dark/brown bread, smoke, charcoal, dark fruit, leather, tobacco, herbal, pepper, and roast/toast/smoky earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/black/roast/bready malts, molasses, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; with a great hop/char bitter/sweet balance, and minimal acrid/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering hop/char bitterness. Light-medium carbonation and full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/velvety, and fairly sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Mildly increasing warmth of 10.2% after the finish. Overall this is an amazing Russian imperial stout! All around incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/black/roast/bready malts, molasses, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to sip on for the big ABV; with the moderately bitter/drying finish. Extremely rich and complex malts; balanced earthy hops and restrained fruity yeast notes. A highly enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.
