Nice deep black with a skim of khaki head. Almost opaque, with just a hint of chocolate brown around the edges. Yeah. So it looks pretty, but it goes downhill from there. Just a hint of roast in the aroma in a style that should be massively roasty. Mostly an odd green/doughy smell. Palate is thin and astringent. Just a hint of roast in the flavor. Mostly a wierd lemon sourness that grows progressively more distracting as it warms. Dissappointing. In the former incarnation of this brewpub, the brewer made a mighy fine Imperial Stout. Not sure what went wrong with this, but its not good.

Brewpub bartender I ask her what kind of Dark beers are on tap which she replies she has two stouts, I ask what kind are they she replies what do I mean? She says one is darker than the other , I ask if its a dry stout ,foreign extra then the light bulb goes on over her head she replys one is a russian imperial..RULE #1always get a taste before you order a full pint! I forgot this rule! This had the look of a good impy it was dark as night dark tan head.The aroma was off slightly bretty no big coffee,roast malt nose almost toasty with some raisins.The taste was stoutish but had a wang.This stuff had seen better days It was drinkable but definitely on it last legs it had a sourness and was funky very vinous in the taste.I wonder if this had spent some time in wood.I hope the brewer gives it another shot and it holds up better next time.
