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!

jmm635 (966) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2010
Very dark brown pour with a medium sized brown head. Really strong lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, with faint hints of chocolate and coffee. Flavor is really rich; sweet and desserty. Creamy mouthfeel and way too easy to drink for a beer approaching 10%.

BiddleBrau (1078) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2010
Jet black with tan head and lots of lacing. Malty, roasty nose, hint of alcohol. Rich roasty, malty and creamy texture. Alcohol presence not overwhelming but after a few sips, it seems everything is numbed by this big beer.

Draft. Pours a black body with a tan head. Roast y burnt coffee and espresso notes. Sweet malty slick oily and light coffee beans. A mild oak and dark fruity body that gives way to a roasted chocolate toned malt body. Great stuff.
