Pours with a dense frothy head that holds up to the half life rule. Half the head remains after 1 minute. Looks like chocolate cream. Off to a good start. Aroma is half chocolate, half roasty and half caramel. Oops, too many halfs. A hint of hops in the aroma as well. Goes down smooth, rich and warm. Taste confirms aroma. Also, a typical level of fruitiness expected from an RIS. Well Done! Can I say that it has good drinkability or has that word been abused too much? Reminds me of Old Rasputin. I’ll have to check that one out again. Cybercat (6011) - Georgia, USA - AUG 20, 2010
Pours a solid near-black with a thick, frothy, rather persistent light tan head. Aroma is smoky with tones of toffee, molasses and coffee. Thick, rich flavor has unsweet chocolate, toffee and nutty components as well as hints of quality coffee and molasses with just a whisper of sweetness. Edgy, fizzy texture leaves behind a nice strong and rather persistent tingle. Skyview (6093) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2010
This is the first time I ever had a stout of any kind from the Stevens Point Brewery. Just released at the brewery and sold in four packs at the gift shop. From a 12-oz bottle pours an opaque, nearly black colored brew with a thick and lasting tan head that even has some excellent lacing. Aroma of Cascade hops with a few floral ones in the background, toasted dark malt, a hint of mocha, and some light molasses. Taste is full bodied, not overly thick but still a decent texture. Flavors of both citrus and floral hops, toasted dark malt, creamy chocolate and just a hint of spice. Finish is silky smooth with a chocolate and light citrus bitter that quickly disappears and leaves a chocolate aftertaste. Any alcohol presence is well hidden. Definitely the best of the Whole Hog series. SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Smells roasty and hints of licorice. Taste is licorice and roast with hints of earthy hops. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Point Whole Hog Russian Imperial Stout finishes with a lingering soft chocolate tone. Darkover (1542) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Black with a tan head. Aroma and taste of sweet malts and chocolate. Medium body, some bitterness, very drinkable.

Surprisingly good Russian Imperial Stout. Feel a little hoodwinked by Point - thought I found a new brewery named Whole Hog Aniela (4216) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2013
Draught at Rattle & Ham NYC sept 2012. Black beer with a tanned head. Coffee, Vanila, malty, sweet, chocolate, licorice and tar aroma. Sweet, malty, coffee, dark dried fruits, chocolate and licorice flavour. A nice beer. Christpuncher (3191) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Way better than it is rated. This one is very similar to a bourbon county brand stout. Sweet and slightly bourbony, this is a real treat. Had a bottle pour at home. Black with a thin tan head

This is the Rum Barrel Aged I had on tap. Pretty big beer for Point. Dark body with a thin tan head. Very sweet chocolate sugar aroma. Taste is a little too sweet for me. Usually rum barrels do that for me. Still very tasty. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Opaque dark brown with crimson lowlights and a quickly fading medium tan topper and minor lacing. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, light citrus, alcohol and mild cookie and coffee. Smooth and creamy body taste of roasted dark malts, chocolate, cocoa, bubblegum, soy sauce and some mild alcohol. Finishes a bit peppery with some warming.
