COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pours a deep, opaque, midnight-black, with a dense milk chocolate colored head. Brewed with a large percentage of roasted and chocolate malts, this huge beer is then aged on oak chips for added depth and complexity. Flavors are reminiscent of dark fruits, chocolate and sandalwood, making Prince Myshkin’s Stout perfect for dessert, or a dangerously smooth nightcap. Just in time to keep you warm on a cold winter night!

On tap at Capone’s. Dark brown pour with some amber highlights. Smooth and chocolatey with not a whole lot else going on except a slightly fruity finish. Very chocolatey...almost akin to ST Choklat. Very good beer.

PhillyCraft (3447) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2011
On tap. Pours a pitch black color with small tan head and an ample amount of sticky lacing. Aromas and Taste of smokey oats, incense, nag champa, chocolate, dark fruit, cedar chips. The taste is very unique and spicy. Leaves a bitter dark chocolate aftertaste in the mouth that lingers for ages. Very good locally brewed Russian Imperial Stout.

DeputyAndy (632) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2011
Draft at iron abbey. Pours a pitch black. There was no head and little carbonation, maybe something was wrong with the lines at the bar? Taste has lots of dark chocolate and coffees. The oak isn’t coming through like I thought it would. Semi hot alcohol flavors are present, but not terrible.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Draft at brewpub on 12/30/09. Pours deep brown, nearly opaque, with a bit of a ruby hue, capped with a few tan bubbles that ring the glass of the snifter. Aroma of roasted chocolate malt and coffee, with some hops playing a supporting role in the background. Burnt chocolate malt hits the palate first, and is accompanied by dark chocolate and espresso. Some dark fruit and molasses become evident toward the end, but fade as bitter dark chocolate clings to the palate for a lengthy finish.
