UPDATED: APR 1, 2021 Pours inky black with a small white ring. Aroma is roasted malt, small smoke, nice earthy hops as expected with Stone. Taste is medium bitterness from the hops with some from the chocolate notes. Nice hop warmness still after 5 years on a shelf. I love Stone. This is my last one in my cellar. Thanks COVID. I need more. KevinReddirt (1095) - Midland, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2020
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2020 I finally got the chance to try Stone Imperial Russian Stout at Aces and Ales in LV while there on a visit. By itself the brew would have been worth the tasting but I had the chance to also drink two other high quality barrel aged imperial stouts at the same time. The color is black as aces with a medium tan head. Nice lacing with this one. I taste a heathy dose of chocolate of course, licorice, strawberries and malt. Easy on the tongue. Quite good, not the best. JDBaker11058 (3598) - Sandy Spring, Maryland, USA - JUN 7, 2020
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2020 Superlative.
Just what you expect for the style. Scads of dark chocolate with notes of molasses, leather, coffee, and a hint of star anise. Full palate, but a surprisingly dry angle to an otherwise slow, rich finish.
Bottle from 2016. TasteChamp57 (27) - - MAR 30, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2020 Отличній имперец. Слаженный. Легко пьется. Плотный и не слишком алкогольный. Легкая горчинка. mrjaxson (915) - .08 Junction, WI, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2020 Dark chocolate, plum, black licorice, coffee, smoky and booze in the nose. Fierce head out of a bottle. Kind of a crazy light body, though. What's holding this up? 2016 vintage. Big hit among the bowling team and friends. 9-5-8-3-15

UPDATED: APR 6, 2020 aromat intensywny, mocno kawowy, dość wyraźnie palony, trochę gorzkiej czekolady. W smaku dalej najwyraźniej kawa, trochę czekolady, trochę palone, ale nie jakoś za mocno. rob19a (1158) - - FEB 10, 2020

Killing aroma! The perfect balance between dark malts and wine.
Taste. Pleasant body, a little dry. It tastes like a mix of wine, chocolate coffee. the finish is wine, there are alcoholic notes.
Perfectly balanced delicious R.I.S. CiderTun44 (16) - - DEC 6, 2019
