It poured inky black, with not much of a tan head which left minimal lacing. The nose was molasses, chocolate and faint wisps of resiny hops. There is a subtle smokiness which blends nicely with the rich, dark flavors (think of a bourbon soaked coffee bean with chocolate). Seriously, it starts off like an adult’s chocolate milk. Rich, smooth with a black patent malt flavor, heavy dark hops, with a hint of maple.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Quite the pour, viscous and jet black with a very dark brown head. Intense Aroma if charred malts, charred coffee, loads of smoke and soy with some strong pine resin and hints if over ripe fruit. Viscous, oily mouth feel with a soft, yet bubbly carb. Intense bitter finish, strong, astringent resinous hope flavour, and a long lasting, strong coffee, charred malt. Quite the big beer alcohol is hidden well, a real sipper.

RBESG in Barcelona. Shared bottle at BrewDog bar. Russian imperial stout, 12.5%. Pitch black colour, tan head. Roasty aroma and flavour, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and oak. Well hopped, some smoke. Slightly warming mouthfeel, but dangerously easy drinking for its strength. Excellent beer.
