COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At 10% ABV, KGB is a big, bold Russian Imperial Stout with overt undertones of coffee, chocolate, and just a little cherry to keep your tastebuds under constant surveilance. Great as a dessert beer, or just a tasty little treat at the end of the day.

I did not have high hopes for this release after a few visits to the brewery. More of a BYO it shows in the quality of the taps. While not flawed or infected they just have a homebrew feel as does this rather flat and timid imperial stout. This is one place in Cleveland I won’t miss all that much.

Aroma / Appearance - The thin pour is watery and leaves a black film all over the sides of the glass. Carbonation is evident with a close look. Dark chocolate, anise, smoke, and sweet cocoa butter are present yet somehow thinned down. Peanut butter brittle does not help improve things.

Flavor / Palate - A creamy texture of black olives almost made me pour the remaining bottle contents down the drain. Dark chocolate, plums, and a warm bitterness helped save it for a while. Een so something was off in a way that suggests it was not age. Scaled down it might make a fine regular stout but as an imperial it falls flat on its face. This is not one to try unless you must have them all.
