3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an opaque black on tap with fluffy tan head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, burnt coffee, and a hint of booze. Taste follows with a nice bitter back end, just a hint of dark cherries over lots of roast. Solid Russian imperial stout.

On tap at Popkin Tavern. Pours dark with minimal head. Great nose of coffee, follows through in the taste. Big, boozy, pleasant. Definitely a solid imperial stout.

Draft at Capital Ale house Innsbrook. Pours black with an inch of thin khaki foam which leaves no lacing. Smoke notes on the nose. A fair amount of alcohol on the tongue. Can’t say I’m really loving this one.

Tap. Very dark with creamy mocha head. Smells roasty with coffee aroma and some booziness. Light dry roasty flavor with developing coffee/roast/dryness/booziness. Palate clean and dry with a nice dry finish.
