  • Pours opaque with an inch of mocha, large bubble foam with a touch of froth on top. Retention is good while lacing is sporadic at best.

    Aroma is a bit muted for a Russian imperial stout. Malty: chocolate is the front runner, licorice, and caramel/brown sugar.

    Taste is a copy of the aroma. Chocolate, that is a bit bitter, followed by licorice, caramel, and bitterness in the finish.

    Medium body with the same amount of carbonation. "Juicy" for a stout, yet dry.

    A light end of the spectrum for a RIS. The lighter body and lack of aroma/flavor just don't do the style justice. Overall a nice beer. Enjoy!
