Style: Russian Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hide a hefty 98 IBUs underneath the smooth blanket of malt. It is made with enormous amounts of two-row malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, flaked oats and hops.

Looks like used motor oil, smells of chocolate. Silky smooth tastes like a stout with very little carbonation has an alcohol bite at the end.

This is an awesome stout. Just trying it for the first time and I love it just as much as founders imperial stout, and that's my favorite. Very thick and dark with a somewhat small head that is deep brown. Smells of everything a great stout should smell like, coffee, dark chocolate, and slight hops. Taste is the same. Everything is balanced wonderfully and I can't wait to get some more. Thanks Oskar Blues

It's been a while since I had this one. Finally get to review it. Here goes:

A: Dark black. Pours a massive black head that leaves a ton of lacing. Looks delicious.

S: Good, but not what I was expecting. Lots of dark fruit and dark candy. Also a great amount of licorice. Not quite the chocolate bomb that I was hoping for.

T: Follows the nose. Plenty of licorice and dark fruit. Back of the palate is very bitter as well. Overall still a good beer, just slightly less than expected.

M: Very thick and creamy. Great.

O: Good beer but not as good as I was expecting. More dark fruit and licorice than chocolate and toffee.
