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

A one year old, properly cellared bottle poured into a Reuben's small snifter. Pours totally pitch black, appearing opaque in the glass, with a fine one finger brown head with great retention and lots of lacing. Roasty aroma of toasted malt, coffee, cinnamon; peppery and lightly charred. Flavor starts with smoky dark toasted malt, coffee and light chocolate; cinnamon slowly develops and contributes to a quite nice chocolate / mocha malt finish with light cinnamon and hops that almost taste like mild peppers. Great creamy body with good carbonation. This tasted different than I expected; with the cinnamon and Aztec themed art, I thought it would be more like Mexican chocolate, but the chocolate flavors are much more dark chocolate. The start is a bit stark with toasted, charred malt, but the flavors that develop are great and the finish is well balanced and flavorful. I really liked this rich Russian imperial stout.

A: very low carbonation jet black tried being aggressive with the pour barely any head

S: get an acidic cinnamon smell pretty much it cinnamon

T: Almost get a roast coffee taste then the cinnamon comes like a freight train and turns this beer sour bitterish with a lingering bitterness on the sides of your tongue

M: Thin semi nitro feel on the tongue without the creaminess just like flat beer

O: Just a shit average beer if your are absolutely in love with cinnamon maybe you'd love this beer but the overly sour bitter finish on the beer just is awful.

Pours smooth with a very light carmel colored swirly head. Absolutely love the color, dark like a clear winter sky and passes the lighter test with an A+(Cant see the flame looking through the beer when put to the back side of the glass). Smells like wonderful roasted malt with a perfect amount of cinnamon. Best thing about this IS is of course the taste. Light notes of chocolate and spices. Very drinkable and will definitely buy again!
