COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The ancient legends that abound the Russian Imperial Stout of yore are filled with tempestuous romance, sinful thievery, and scurvy, too. So highly regarded was this historic recipe, the Russian Kings tried to keep it all to themselves. They failed. Today we bring you our own dastardly dark version, with a rich and roasty aroma, notes of plum and port and a velvety texture so luscious it just might make a grown man weep.

jrgratz (113) - New York, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Tap at George Keeleys.. Pour is dark black with a nice tan head. Bitter chocolate, roasted malt, dark fruit, roasted malts on the nose. Taste is a nice balance between sweet and bitter.. the sweetness of dates/prunes and the bitterness of chocolates and light coffee. Slightly oily in mouth. Nice liquorice aftertaste. Interesting stout.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Nikły, palony aromat. Trochę wodniste, mocno palone, z lekką czekoladą i wyraźnym alkoholem. Nuda.

alekp2 (8) - POLAND - APR 4, 2017 does not count
Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Aromat typowy, bardzo przyjemny. W smaku dominuje gorzka czekolada, z nieco zbyt ciężką ściągającą goryczką na końcu - niestety psuje to trochę całość i obniża pijalność. Oglnie - całkiem ok, ale czterech liter nie urywa.

Procent (640) - POLAND - FEB 23, 2017
W aromacie klasycznie - kawa, paloność, ciemna czekolada. Ładny, dość intensywny aromat. Barwa jednolicie czarna, ładna, drobnopęcherzykowa piana. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie - głęboko palone, z mocną, gorzką czekoladą i dość wysoką goryczką. Sporo ciała, gładka faktura, średnie wysycenie. Bardzo solidny, nic nie urywający RIS. Sączy się z przyjemnością!

My first beer from Mission. Earthy aroma with little head in pour or lacing rentention. Roasted, nutty flavors are very nice with a very smooth palate and finish.

Bottle in trade from solidfunk, thanks for the opportunity! Solid black with a good sized tan head that persists. Roasty chocolate with a bit of earth and licorice and just a touch of dark fruit. Pretty tasty stout.
