Bottle share taster. Dark brown, no cap. Aroma of lactose, chocolate, raisin, and booze. Taste is sour. Not bad.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2014 This Russian Imperial is the best value that there is. At $4.79 for a 22 Oz. I defy anyone to find a better deal. This is a very good imperial russian stout. The price is right, and it is overall a very good tasting stout.

Bottle. Pours a near black color with a small tan head on it. Nose is a little roasty with some nice chocolate coming through, though subtly. Taste is chocolatey and slightly sweet with just a little roasting in there. Good brew and really glad I found it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. This beer is a dark brown-black color with a medium tan head that evaporates quickly. Small sticky patches of lacing. Espresso and malt in the nose. Medium body with a roasty coffee character and notes of malt, hops and fruit. The finish is burnt malt and moderately bitter coffee. Lighter for an Imperial Stout but decent overall.

Black in color. with a tan frothy head. Constallation lacing. Nuts and chocolate are noticeable in the aroma. It has a creamy texture that has a black coffee aftertaste. Smooth beer that finishes very good. Great beer.

22 oz. bottle- Pours bitch ass black with a nice creamy tan head. Aroma is dark roasted malts, chocolate really comes through, yum. The taste is the same, chocolatey, it tastes like dark chocolate with a mild hoppy bite, very mellow and drinkable, one of the more sessionable IRS beers I have had. Body is medium to almost full, carbonation is medium to almost light. Overall It is a damn easy drinking IRS with lots of flavor, really liked it.

Shared with Stykzone vai Facebook Chat. Pored a /black color with a big bubbled tan head. Nose of roasted malts with chocolate dominating. Rich bold body and smooth creamy mouthfeel Flavor shows some bitterness on top of the rich malts, and there is some bitterness in the finish. Good drinking.

Bomber from Hayduke. We enjoyed it together via facebook chat. This poured black with an angry looking dark tan head that bubbled up ominously. The nose was primarily coffee and cocoa with soy and beans. The first thing I tasted was hops but then coffee and cocoa. Later some soy and then tobacco were noted. The hops faded but never left. They might have been Cascade with tart bitter citrus. Soy and dark fruit. The feel began creamy with some effervescence but thinned out later. This was good.
