Ótima imperial Stout originada de Las Vegas, NV. Cor negra, com formacao media de espuma, desprende aroma de malte torrado típico do estilo, enriquecido pela adição de lúpulo e chocolate. Na boca, otimo corpo, com notas de cafe, baunilha, chocolate, com amargor médio, porém equilibrando a cerveja ate o seu final, seco. Retrogosto lembrando cafe e toffee. Excelente breja! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black, Huge Thick Brown Head, Lots of Lacing. Roasted with funky bitter finish and slight sweetness in between. Glad to try it but just OK for me.

12 oz bottle. My first new state in a while; five more to go. Dark brown with a big foamy tan head. Nose is hay, malted milk balls and raisin. Sharp and fizzy medium body with lingering ash. Taste is dark roast, licorice, Fig Newton and green olive. Not half bad.

Aroma is malts, dark fruit and a definite smoked/burnt element. The flavor is dark fruit, burnt rubber, malts and an acidic finish.

Itzjerm (1396) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - APR 10, 2013
This should be called a chocolate stout instead of an russian imperial. Not enough IBUs for a RIS. As a chocolate stout it is quiet phenominal. Chocolate aroma is pronounced. It is obvious in the taste as well. A very nice brew. No head at all however. Very thick and syrupy on the tongue.

This was one of the bottles we got a Lees in Vegas before heading out to the desert. Had this in St. George. Pours black with a creamy tan head. Sort of burnt malt aroma. Near med body. Flavor is chocolate, with some coffee, and burnt malt. Its fairly smooth burnt malt. Decent enough. Bitter finish.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours black with a solid 3toffee fingers of thick tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate with a hint of vanilla. Taste is light bitter. Loads of coffee and dark chocolate. A slight aftertase of artificial cherry. Full bodied with a super thick texture. Very fizzy carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, very good. Not a fan of the carbonation. Bad bottle maybe? While slightly warming, the alcohol is very well hidden. I would drink this one again.

Black with tan head. Not a very strong aroma but notes of cola Chewy texture with sweet malty flavor of licorice and a hint of whiskey. Finishes with coffee grinds
