look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a hoegarden glass

A-Dark black with a small chocolate brown head

S-Smells very heavy at first. definitly got some alcohol in it. After that initial smell i get some chocolate and coffee

T-Tastes like, if you can imagine, a Dark roasted coffee with dark chocolate and alcohol added (maybe like a shot of baileys). Getting a little bit of hops/alcohol at the end.

MF-Pretty thick body, fairly creamy. Decent aftertaste.

O-Pretty good. Not what I was hoping. But still a nice beer. I can enjoy this one pretty easily. I would reccomend this to anyone looking for a good high alcohol stout. Definitly lives up to the chocolate name.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a goblet.

A: Deep, black as night color. Yields a dark tan colored head that maintains its presence throughout the 12oz session. Beautiful lacing all over the glass.

S: Overly Boozy. Rum, raisins, even some coffee. If dry has a smell, it's there.

T: Follows the nose, I get a lot of rum-like raisin flavors with coffee notes in the background. Chocolate is present but surprisingly not very prominent. Rich flavor.

M: Quite thin for a Russian Imperial. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. Bitter finish.

O: The mouthfeel is would lend to high drinkability if it were not for the booziness. Nonetheless it is highly drinkable for a big RIS. Not a session beer, nor should it be. Well worth repeated visits. I like it a lot for the price and the ABV.
