Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with nice black chocolate notes and some cocoa is pleasant. Taste is also dominated by semi-sweet black chocolate notes with some light dry roasted malt notes and some cocoa notes re also identifiable. Body is full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not as dry or bitter as some other example of the style and somewhat lacking in compelxity but still really enjoyable.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Half year old bottle, stored in the fridge. Pours pitch black with a thin light brown head that dissipates to a thin film with light lacing. Aroma of sweet dark toasted malt, chocolate, hints of caramel and coffee, light char. Flavor is similar to aroma, dominated by sweet dark toasted malt, charred coffee, dark chocolate, light toffee and a hint of cherry. Finishes a bit drier with lingering coffee and grassy hop bitterness and hints of tart fruit and char. Medium to heavy bodied with light creaminess. A nicely made Russian imperial stout on the charred coffee side of the flavor spectrum. The malt body is good, but fades a bit in the finish, leaving the char and bitterness a little stark. It hit all the flavor notes I hope for in a RIS, with initial rich and flavorful malt. If it was brewed again, I'd buy another one.

Gigantic Brewing Co. 'Most Premium Russian Imperial Stout' @ 10.0% , served from a couple of 650 ml bottle's purchased for $8.15 each

A-pour is a dark cola brown from the bottle to near black in the glass with a hint of ruby red peeking thru a thin small tan head leaving a minimal lace ring

S-ripe cherries , booze

T-somewhat smoother than Hornbeer - Fundamental Blackhorn , still a lot of smokeyness

MF-ok/good carbonation , full bodied

Ov-ok/good beer , decent 'RIS' , no wow factor
