Purs a muddy black with almost no head. Aromas of bitter chocolate, coffee grinds, cacao. Some light marshmallow and perhaps a touch of dark fruit going on as well. Taste is similar; black cock, coffee, roast, harsh chocolate, prison sex. Pretty damn good. Finishes dry.

Pours a solid dark brown/black with a good sized creamy tan head that slowly dissipates to a cap on top. The aroma is filled with dark dried fruit and caramel with hints of molasses, chocolate, and coffee. Light earthy hop aroma tries to provide some balance but succumbs to the depths of the malt. The flavor is a bit of a departure from the aroma. Chocolate and coffee milk flavors with with a bit of caramel and molasses. Light earthy hop and a touch of ethanol in a fairly dry finish. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet silky mouthfeel. This is a decent stout that I can get behind. Its not overly complex, and a bit dry in the finish for my liking, but I enjoyed it just the same.

The aroma is very toasted with coffee, chocolate, and burnt malt. The appearance is dark brown with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is about right. Overall this is good.

Dark in appearance... tan, bubbly head. Smells like a thin carbonated malty beer. Tastes and feels thin.. more like a porter than a stout.

NikkTwist (1529) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Draft at Khyber Pass. Opaque pour only hints at a dark orange brown up to a very strong light. Head reduces to a very tiny tan ring. Heady alcohol off the top. Juicy pitch black flavors. Coffee grounds. Kerosene infused charcoal. Earthy truffles. Cigarettes. Leather. Shoe polish. Alcohol centered dark chocolates. Shoo Fly pie. Dried berries. Vegemite. Black peppercorns. Bitter tingles on the tongue. Medium body. More juicy than creamy in terms of what one might expect for a billed Russian Imperial. Still quite dark and big.

Beerman6686 (4200) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2013
This poured a darker brown color with a lighter tan head. Aroma was of licorice, smoke, and dark burnt chocolate. Flavor was much the same, nicely smokey and a bit ashey, but not too offensive. Alcohol is hidden well too. Nice offering by Harpoon.
