My last 2013 can (bottled 9/16/13) into a snifter.

Pours very dark and thick. Aroma is very pleasant, lots of chocolate, malts, something charred. A really great tasting beer. Chocolate, some bitterness, roasty. Real roasty, almost meaty. Quite smooth, hides the ABV well.

One of my favorite Russian Imperial Stouts, and one everyboby should try.

Nice aroma. Coffee, but not too strong. Deep and dark fruit. Soft hop. Nothing over the top - so very well balanced.
Pours slowly. Small, but dense dark head. Opaque body. Looks like it should in my mind. Really dense and thick lacing. Never seem something quite like that before.
Wow! Now that's a nice beer. Again so very well balanced, yet rich enough to be fulfilling. Very complex but nothing dominant or overwhelming. No sharpness! No biting! Just straight up RIS flavors presented in the most pleasing form.
Feel is top notch. Smooth creamy and perfectly carbonated.
This deserves its spot amongst the top beers. What a joy.

A: Black with dark brown head. Decent retention with a little lacing.

S: Very strong dark chocolate and dark fruit. Overripe grapes, raisin, and some cherry. Some vanilla along with some general sweetness.

T: Bitter roasted malt which transitions into a semi-sweet dark chocolate with a bit of vanilla. The dark fruits and roasted malt are in the aftertaste.

M: Big, full bodied, silky, smooth. Low carbonation. Wet.

O: Very good RIS. One of my favorite beers so far.

Absolutely one of my favorite beers!! honestly can go good with anything, but you are better off enjoying this beer by itself. it has so much too offer, such great combination between the yeast and malt's making this an outstanding brew. you can put this on my list of top beers.
