COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Every so often we brew this tasty treat that clocks in at 10% ABV. A silky smooth, motor-oil black pour reveals rich, roasty notes of caramel, chocolate and coffee.

Like the first stouts brewed for Russian Czars, this offering is big, bold and built to last. Grab a few for the cellar, a couple for your comrades and enjoy because— like those Czars of yesteryear— this beer may be gone soon.

Coffee, chocolate and thick body. Lite sweetness and chocolate aroma. A little unfinished at the end, but altogether a fine beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured thick, black and oily with a huge dark brown head that lingers. The aroma was rich sweet chocolate, dry toasty malt, light coffee and toffee with a faint undercurrent of floral hops.The flavor was sweet chocolate, ripe fruits, port wine, cocoa powder and toffee with a bitter floral hop presence in the middle. The finish was long with port wine, cocoa and fruity. The mouthfeel is thick, smooth and silky. The beer is so slick it coats the glass long after it is gone and the flavor linger enticingly. Fabulous!

Bottle. I could mistakenly throw this out with the old engine from my 1998 Toyota -- thick and oily with a solid light brown head. The aroma is thick and creamy. This stout drinks quite easily for such a high gravity pour, full of sweet, dark fruit and beguiling bitter chocolate. Excellent. (#3788, 1/3/2010)

Pours pitch black with a quick fizzling mocha brown head. Smells like chocolate and roasted malts with hints of alcohol on the nose. Taste is strongly of chocolate with a roasted backbone; almost no alcohol on the taste at all. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and very soft mouth-carbonation, Otter Creek Russian Imperial Stout finishes with a nice roasted bitterness.

Delicious! Black pour with lasting, clingy brown foam. Aroma is rich, with lots of roast and dark cocoa. Flavor is similar - very roasty, but never too bitter, with lots of chocolate notes and a mild sweetness mid-sip. Incredibly smooth from start to very clean finish, with just a slight lingering cocoa. Easily the best RIS I’ve had.
