COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on a robust Americanized Russian-Style Imperial Stout. Moderately hopped to liven up a richly malted classic. This is the base beer for our insanely popular barrel aged Reserve Series variants. You’ve worked hard. You’ve earned this.

Pours a deep chocolate brown with off white head. Nice roasty aroma. Light to medium bodied; rich chocolate and roast flavors. Excellent. Notes: on a tap in KC, Apt ’17.

Man, this beer really reminds me of Old Rasputin, that’s a good thing .. Roast and tar .. Solid mouth all the way through .. Bold bitterness .. Solid stout .. . . Don’t ever google where the lemon party is going to be!

Plenty of the expected chocolate and coffee plus a bit of licorice to spice things up. Very nice.

Draft at NBC Taproom.Opaque. The aroma of roasted Grians, chocolate, mild coffee, and earth.

The taste has char, ash, coffee, and has a finish that has mild pine bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium to full-body. The texture is ashy, dry and bitter.

JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - FEB 10, 2017
Can with removable lid. Dark brown with a foamy light tan head. Aromas of toasted malt, dark caramel, mild licorice and bits of pine. Sweet start with most of the mentioned aroma qualities. The alcohol does seem to show itself a bit more than I would prefer. A solid imperial stout.

12oz can from Discount in Waukesha. Weirdest opening can ever ... Mickey’s big mouth. Quite black pour with a beige head. Coffee and caramel, with some cocoa. Some anise. Has a bit of a belgian presence and maybe some walnut. Quite dry. The blend is decent, and it really stays away from being too sweet. 13.8
