Style: Russian Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
An imperial stout — a classic style so rich and flavorful that it was once the private beverage of Russian Czars. The profile is malty sweet, hop bitter roasted, full-bodied, alcoholic and deliciously complex. Beer doesn’t get much more intense than this!

Poured from a tap into pint glass in December 2017.

Appearance: Very dark black with a thick tan/brown head. Head remains thick for a while, and leaves nice lacing on the glass, more lacing than most other stouts.

Smell: Strong aroma of chocolate and caramel. There is some additional sweetness from roasted coffee and malts. Not much hop aroma.

Taste: There is an interesting combination of flavors. There is strong chocolate flavors with some smoky roasted malt flavors, and a little caramel flavor. There is a pronounced bitterness from hops. There is a strong alcohol presence as with other Imperial Stouts.

Mouth-feel: Thick, but with an extremely smooth and creamy body.

This is an interesting Imperial Stout, and it has a variety of flavors that adds a nice complexity to the beer. It is very smooth but the bitterness is more than expected.

I don't get the good ratings. There wasn't much flavor there and the flavor that was there was not good. Tastes like chemical solvent, alcohol, and some very minor and mediocre stout flavors. Smells similar. Looks fine although the head is very strange.

Looks the part. Oh no, smells very weak. Taste is very mild chocolate and roast. Jeez, this is so watered down. You would never know from the look but muddy water comes to mind. Way too thin and just plain not good. Can't believe they chanrge what they charge for their beers. All are average at best and forgettable.
