The best imperial stout on the market right now, hands down. I have had floyds, and while they make a great stout you can never find it and they treat it like Russian River Piny the elder. A hell of a lot more special than it truely is. But back to the stout, it is amazing you won’t regret picking up one of these beers. So do yourself a favor and try it out next time you see it.

Pours dark ruby red with a light beige head. Smells chocolaty. Taste is solid chocolate with hints of espresso. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and very soft mouth-carbonation, Eel River Raven’s Eye Imperial Stout finishes chocolaty with a touch of alcohol heat. kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - JAN 31, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2007 22 oz bottle via LS. Pours almost black with mahogany highlights. Average size dense tan head. Nose is roasty/smokey with mocha notes. Taste starts with some vanilla, some roasted malts, some chocolate, some coffee, and finishes with a nice complex mocha that lingers into the aftertaste. A tiny bit of smokiness in there as well..There are some citrus hops as well but they are fairly subdued. Moderate carbonation. medium body. Alcohol very well-hidden for 9.5% abv...This is a very nice drinkable complex Imp Stout. Not over the top like most are..this is easy to drink but extremely tasty. Medium body, silky mouthfeel like a nice oatmeal stout...Think Alesmith Speedway Stout with less coffee and more roastiness....Pretty close to perfect.
P.S. The bottle says ’Nitrogen conditioned’..not sure what that means since there is no widget....but it does seem to have a vry nice mouthfeel, so maybe they are onto something? Daiguchisan (3) - Mexico City, MEXICO - AUG 3, 2013 does not count
Strong Stout for strong palates. This beer will give you a mind blowing flavor, specially if you are looking for a beer with coffee and chocolate taste. Enjoy it! Cheers!
