On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a dark raisin (almost purple) brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has lots of roasted malts with underlying notes of dark fruit, chocolate, raisin and a hint of hazelnut. Flavor is extremely rich with dark chocolate and roasted malts up front joined by dark fruit and a hint of coffee.

Draft. Had both batch (?) # 3 and #4 side by side at the anniversary. While the fresh batch won out (3.8 vs. 3.7), both were very nice. The newer batch was actually smoother, with more cocoa and almost a lactose feel to it. Bother showed depths of dark fruit, chocolate, super rich and roasted malts and some known booziness. A fine brew.

On tap at the source. Admittedly, Iím a huge fan of the Russian imperial stout style. But still, this is, without doubt, the best beer Iíve ever had in my life. Period.

Draft at the source. Black color, massive thick brown head with great retention and solid lacing, gorgeous. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, coffee. Taste is over brewed but not quite burnt espresso, bitter cocoa powder, vanilla beans. Very tasty.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Comes out of the tap a rich, oily sable with a buttery-tan head. I didnít get much, but that is doubtless because of the pour, and it does leave plenty of lacing. Aroma has roast malt, coffee and molasses notes plus a hint of caramel. Flavor has a roast malt core and notes of caramel, molasses, toffee and coffee - and a noticeable alcohol nip. Firm, smooth texture has a good tingle to it, and leaves a smoky, oily, slightly sweet, slightly alcohol-biting finish. Canít you hear them Siberian wolves a-howling?

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
my favorite beer of the night by far Pours a deep, dark brown with a small light tan head. Nose is a bit of chocolate, some light coffee or cafe con leche, bits of caramel, a little booze, and hops. Pronounced grapefruit and slight pine hops. Flavor is like hoppy chocolate with some coffee. Pronounced grapefruit and some pine hops as well. Great balance and no sense of the 10.7% abv. Medium in body, and very good overall
