Bottle. Pours black with a beige head. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, slight alcohol. Taste is similar: chocolate, vanilla, dark roasted cold brewed coffee, roasted malts. A medium sweetness, though I really like the balance between that and the bitterness. Medium+ bodied, a touch creamy, flavors linger in the finish. This really is a delicious beer.

Aroma is chocolate, dark malts and lactic sweetness. The flavor is chocolate, dark fruit/mildly vinous, dark malts and a mix of acidity/slight heat/warming heat in the finish.

This one is sweet and boozy to start with a strong bite at the finish. Notes of coffee, chocolate, and licorice. Pours black with a thin tan head from a bottle. Well done Russian imperial stout

bottle - Pours black with a small tan head. It smells of dark roast malt, chocolate, and some coffee. It tastes similar with a solid balance of sweet malt and bitterness from ample hops with a finishing roasted character. Full bodied. Really good.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Looks like a great RIS big head and pitch black. Loses me a little with the aroma and palate. Still a good RSI.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bottle into snifter. Black with medium sized light brown head. Nose cocoa, caramel, roasted barley, some spices, nutmeg, yeast. Full bodied, medium carbonation, sweet and dry, almost a body of a foreign stout. Black patent malt in the finish. As it warms the body seems to get lighter. Really unique interpretation of the style and enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black pour with a little brown suds on top. Malty chocolate aroma, a bit of cola styrup, vanilla too. Soft carbonation, thick oily mouthfeel, clean finish fairly effervescent. Taste is roasty and woodsy, bitter dark chocolate, some sweet vanilla and doughines toward the finish, kind of boozy. So so for greenbush and the style
