I like these guys a lot, I just didnít think this was up to par. It seemed to me that it had a lot of black patent malt in it. It was far too dark fruity, slightly acrid burnt. Missing a lot of the pleasant chocolate/coffee type flavors that can be found in big stouts. Still would like to see more.

This poured a jet black with a tan head. Big dark chocolate aroma, light smoke and lightly burnt malt. Flavor was light grapry, smoke deep roasted malt, light pretzel and dark chocolate, big but not sweet at all. Pretty damn good.

Sampled from a growler this beer poured a black color with a medium sized foamy brown head that faded fairly quickly and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet chocolate syrup,almost bourbon, wood and vanilla cream. The flavor was sweet, toasty and roasty with chocolate syrup, vanilla cream and a touch of wood. Long finish. Thick, creamy and silky body that would not leave the tongue. Outstanding.

I had this special offering from Helltown at this yearís Steel City Big Pour. It was labeled as a Russian Imperial Stout and clocked in at 13%abv. The samples were viscous and black as a winterís night. The nose was strong and thick like Hersheyís chocolate syrup, and deeper nosing gave off loads of dark cocoa and sweet dark chocolate. On the palate, this beer was absolute perfection, and I canít stress that enough. I have never had another RIS like this in my life. The mouthfeel was thick but silky, like creamy velvet. The flavors started off with caramelized, bruleed sugar and raisins, then moved to bourbon, brown sugar, and espresso. The finish left just a whisper of chocolate roast, and was a perfect length. Overall, this beer completely blew me away - words almost canít describe how good this beer was.
