Draft at the Fort Wayne release party at CS3. Very nice Impy Stout, but I didnít get much barrel aging from the taste. Coffee was present but not overwhelming, just how I like it. Closer to the true russian impy style with a bit more bitterness than I prefer, but like I said, nice. Some dark fruit and caramel in there, but also not as forward as expected. If anything, Iíd say this a bit on the mild side compared to many examples of the style being put forth by breweries here today. That isnít a bad thing though... this deserves being tried.

On tap poured into a sampler. The aroma is rich and sweet with notes of caramel, chocolate, wood, nuts, and raisin. The beer is dark and opaque with a brown soap head. A thick ring of head is retained, as well as a filmy surface, and an abundant lace is left on the glass. The taste is a blend of medium sweet upfront and medium high bitter following up. Itís viscous and creamy with a full body with notes of raisin, chocolate, molasses, and wood. Thereís a nutty character too that comes through more on the finish along with the wood. The finish is lightly gritty, but slick with a malty aftertaste thatís smokey, kinda dry and chalky, with hints of chocolate, molasses, and crust.

Block (1650) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Had about 8oz at the brewery. Black pour, thin brown head. Aroma is chocolate, sweet, somewhat roasted. Body is mild, medium heaviness, sweet. Not very roasted but distinctly dark. Coffee isnít intense. Alcohol is masked but this is not a complex beer.

16 ounce can. Thanks Al. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, semi-sweet chocolate, coffee, and some barrel. Solid, but not memorable.

Not sure id call this a Russian imperial stout. More like a milk stout. Would have guessed in the 7% range. Lots of chocolate, slight bourbon. Flavors are light. Has a creamy mouthfeel.

Black rich pour under a thin khaki rocky head. Rich deep chocolaty molasses tone with a little licorice with some burnt oak and a bit of thick earthy roasty caramel. Thick sticky flavor with molasses and deep dark chocolate with some oak char and light vanilla/coconut. A little toast as well with a chocolaty finish. Quite delightful.

b3shine (6270) - Indiana, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Draft to taster at Sun King. This yearís batch is 9.4% and 80 IBUs. Looks good; a fairly opaque darker brownish black with foamy beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt, dark chocolate, and coffee. Tastes like it smells with what seems to be a bit of oak as well. Sid on the palate. Could use more viscosity, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Nearly black in color. Coffee, roasted malt, asphalt, tar, dark fruits, molasses. Very full bodied beer. Good.

Black pour...nose is heavy on lactose sugar, dark fruits, coffee and some Heath Bar. Full bodied...very sweet, lactose comes through immediately with some black cherry, plum, vanilla and coffee coming through to finish it off. Good brew
