COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. George Winter Stout is our tribute to the Russian Tsars of old. This Russian Imperial Stout is a huge beer. Everything from the body to the malt flavor and hop bitterness to its alcohol strength demands respect. Impenetratably black with a dense dark crown, this is a beer that will make even the longest of winters tolerable.

Bottle at Chris’ Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia tasting. Black, lasting tan head. Roasted malt aorma. It’s alright. Qyite tasty. Everyone else is wrong again at this tating. I thought quite dry, grainy and drinkable.

Tmoney99 (10399) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2010
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a dark brown color with a moderate to large frothy brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate, dark grape skin aroma. Medium to heavy bittersweet toasted malt and tannic flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a very good complex beer.

RIS bomber from dakine on 3/21/2010. pours a black shade of brown with a thin foamy tan head. initially, it smells crisp and roasty. that is followed by some chocolate, oatmeal? and caramel. the flavor shows the same characteristics along with coffee, molasses and black raisins. it is really easy to put away since it is a bit thin for the style. crisp yet creamy. 7/3/7/3/15/3.5

22nd May 2010. ChrisOs ’Blue Ridge Mountains Of Virginia’ tasting! Opaque black stout. Almost no head. Light soft palate. Dark unsweet chocolate with a whisper of paint that detracts from the otherwise good flavour. Finishes light and malty and warming.

Bomber shared by Superdave at Hellbilly’s Shootout in Sosco Tasting. Pours pitch black with a thin tan head. The nose is roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee and light salty soy. The taste is similar with some sweeter chocolate mixed in as well. Medium semi-creamy mouthfeel. Tasty - thanks Dave!

Thanks to Amelia for the bomber (as "Russian Imperial Stout")! Poured deep brown with a rich, easily-resuscitated dark tan head. The aroma picked up sweet, lightly-roasted and lightly-smoked molasses and caramel notes with a little bit of buttery character beneath.. sweet overall, with faint metallic character right on the back.. kind of messy. The flavor opened with tart coffee (and lesser metallic notes), backed by more coffee, chocolate, and some molasses.. a little like uncooked cake batter with a splash of Kahlua, yet still somehow messy.. finished with a lactic kick (maybe it was lactose all along, not metal) over dry-roasted coffee and some related bitterness. Medium-bodied, and sharper/more sour than I needed on the palate.. too sweet as well.. OK flow across the palate.

bottle pours plack with a medium tan head. Aroma is burnt sugar and espresso. Dark chocolate covered berries and lots of roasted coffee and malt flavors. Rich and decadent.
