Style: Russian Imperial Stout

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

12 ox. can poured into a Founders snifter. Canned on date 12/02/10.

Appearance: Pours thick, jet black color. No real head to speakof, but a thin dark brown lacing.

Smell: Molasses, milk chocolate, caramel, with a touch of dark fruit. Smell is very rich and sweet.

Taste: Similar to the smell - Rich chocolate and molasses take the forefront, some caramel/toffee and dark fruit come through. Alcohol is hidden well. This beer is very rich and finishes pretty sweet. The only thing I would add is more bittering hops to balance out the sweetness on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Thick, rich, and velvety smooth. Appropriately low carbonation. Stays true to the motor oil name. Pretty much spot on for what I'm looking for in an imperial stout.

Overall: Phenomenal beer. As far as "straight" imperial stouts go (no flavor adjuncts, barrel treatment, etc), this is one of the best.
