Brewed by:
BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse
Arizona, United States

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!

BJ's is all over the place with this one. I had this at the San Mateo, CA BJ's, and I'm fairly certain it tastes the same at every other BJ's.

A: Black with a creamy brown head. Very dark, head stays with the beer all the way down the glass.

S: Sweet malt, bittersweet chocolate, dark roast coffee, smells like a standard imperial stout.

T: Pretty much the same as the nose. Sweet malt, dark chocolate, coffee. Standard, but delicious. Definitely worth a try, at least in the dark beer sampler.

M: Full bodied and pretty smooth.

O: Underrated. Beers from places like BJ's aren't given the consideration they deserve, because of the large number of locations or broad distribution, but the fact remains that this is an excellent imperial stout.
