22 oz. bottle. Pours brown black with a nice khaki tan head that fades to a wispy film and collar. Aroma has strong roasted malt coffee and chocolate with some soy. Taste is coffee right up front with roasted malt and soy and bitter chocolate mixed in. Palate is full slick a little sticky and warming. Solid!

Really nice RIS where the coffee plays its part very well. Sweet is balanced with bitterness.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This very dark stout has a small head. Its wonderful taste is dominated by the coffee essence in the roasted malt, with significant caramel taste. The hops are slightly understated, allowing the full flavor of the malt to come through. A great stout.

Pours dark black with a thick Carmel color head. Woody aroma. Flavor starts coffee bitter, finishes sweet. Super smooth mouthfeel. Good Russian but not as intense as imagined. Masks the high alcohol content well
