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

12 oz. bottle poured into a Founders snifter.

Appearance: Pours opaque black with a thin brown head. Leaves a nice lacing down the glass.

Smell: Dark chocolate and caramel up front. Heavy dark fruit presence takes over with plum and fig, along with a touch of alcohol.

Taste: Starts off similar to the smell with cocoa, caramel malt, and dark fruit, but is amplified by strong coffee notes along with some molasses and more roasted barley. Flavors are developed extremely well - this is one intense, complex stout. Finish is semi-sweet with a touch of alcohol heat.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied, rich feel. Medium to low carbonation (for my taste it would benefit with a little bit lower of a carb level).

Overall: A perfect example of a classic Russian Imperial Stout. It really is amazing how many flavors can be developed without adding any cocoa nibs, coffee, etc.
