Beautiful thick almost Guinness like head, nice deep caramel colored with tight carbonation.

Nice deep rich coffee flavors with a perfect touch of sweetness.

The roasted coffee smells are really well balanced with the flavor..

Also with a 9.3% ABV it's not dry at all.. very smooth.. a Beer you can drink too fast and hate yourself the next morning.

With that said, I going to buy another 2 bottles tonight..

>>>

I have since then gone to Hardywood (They are near my office) and bought it multiple times and am currently hitting one of the growlers.

Since its a limited run and only limited (VERY) are left.. I feel bad for anyone that never had this.. It has to be the best beer I have EVER had.. and I have had a lot (mind you I like my beers high in ABV, with a sweet malty flavor.. Coffee and Chocolate and Vanilla are my favorite flavors and this Beer is loaded with them.

That said.. Saturday they release a new Beer, Chocolate Heat.. also a Russian Imperial Stout.. If you are in their distribution area get it !

Come to the Dark side - We have Stouts and Porters :)

This beer really hit the spot for me. Not bitter like a lot of coffee stouts. Not to sweet either though.

2015 batch is much much better than 2014. Coffee notes are much more balanced and has a stronger nose to it. Mouth feel may be a hint too light... Maybe because of high carbonation. Again, 2015 is much much better than 14.

This was an exceptionally well balanced RIS. Surprised it doesn't have higher ratings. Nonetheless, it has everything I look for in a RIS, specifically the thick, sweet mouth feel. The coffee is perfectly brought out in the aftertaste.
