Excellent complexity is appealing. The sweetness of malt is subdued by stronger bitterness. The direction of this balance shifts over time with a chalky mouthfeel emerging on the finish. Many notes similar to those found in amaro are present including anise, herbs and evergreen.

Redtown (4) - - MAR 9, 2014 does not count
one of the best I have ever had coffee smell and taste with a medium hop bitterness, light head. I was pretty disappointed with Utah beer up until this point, wish I could go back now, hopefully see this on the east coast.

Gription79 (2827) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Poured from a 500 ml bottle. Pours black with dirty oil hues and a tan head. This is a very roasty beer, coffee, bitter chocolate, resinous hops, smoky, tobacco. This is a solid imperial stout. It does finish on the dry side making it easy to drink. Well done Red Rock!

douglas88 (8396) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 13, 2013
500 ml bottle from the brewery. Pours a totally black color with a medium beige head. A sweet chocolate nose, milky. A rich flavor of roast, sweet chocolate, ash, sweet fruity hops. Dry as heck. Interesting. Light dark fruit and cocoa in the finish. Quite good. No heat at all.

Roasty, citrus fruit aroma. Malt flavor is pretty sweet, but finishes drier--not cloying at all. Cocoa-like roasted flavor; Fruity, spicy (hops?), molasses. Can smell a little alcohol, but can’t taste it.

Should rate this one again sometime

Ibrew2or3 (8155) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Poured up at the Avenues Proper Publick House out of a 50cl bottle which resulted in a full glass of beer with a nice and dark body that supports a full tan head of foam that leaves behind sheet lacing. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, some spicy anise like black licorice and then a light amount of toffee mixed with dark fruity esters. The taste is rich and roasty with dark roasted malts rolling into chocolate malts and spicy black licorice. It picks up a faint but pleasing degree of sweet dark fruity esters that mingle seamlessly with the dark roastiness into the finish. Nice stuff.

marcus (9133) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle shared by my friend Bruce. Pours dark brown with a modest tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a hearty dark molasses flavor with lots of carbonation and a dry finish. Slight dark fruit notes.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Looks like motor oil with a nice light brown head. The nose is huge with roasted malt & baker’s chocolate. The tastes starts with big roasted notes with espresso and dark chocolate. A nice bed of toffee & caramel come next with a strong burst of pine in the finish. This Russian Imperial is stout is dryer than some, but it’s huge roasted character & fresh hop bite make a nice, highly drinkable stout. A chocolate chip cookie would be the perfect partner for this beer.
