COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Anger and hostility complexes await you, dear beer lover, for this Russian Imperial Stout was not meant for you. Meant only for those that live a life of separation and those that sit in the dark by choice, this deep, mysterious, black as death beer will haunt you at night, leave you weeping in your sleep, and remind you that manners mean nothing to a corpse. Like traveling through the bonfires of Hell, each sip serves as a reminder that you do not belong. You, dear beer lover, are not worthy.

On tap at Pollyanna’s station as their bonus beer for the 18th Annual Chicagoland Brewpub Shootout. Dispensed to my fest glass showing a black/brown hue, with a persistent layer of brownish tan head foam, and frothy spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was roasted and mainly cocoa, with some coffee on the back, and a light scent of char. A little less than full bodied, but rich on the palate, with soft carbonation, a bit of silkiness to the mouthfeel, and bitterness that was dry, roasted, earthy, and lingering. Kudos!

Flight pour on tap at the brewery (Lemont, IL). Pours a deeper mysterious blackish hue, opaque body and stark colors taper out to just a bit or brownish glow on the edges and bottom. Tannish head is sizable, firm with a thicker ringer remaining atop and lacing well. Aromas are firmly toasty and roasty, a bit bitter and acrid with touches of sweetness giving some jabs beneath. Caramel, gentle dark fruit and cocoa hit the nostrils. Initial shows a medium body, a bit lighter than I expected but not thin. Silky malts glide over the palate at first with a slowly growing firmer roast and bitter earth element eventually overcoming. A touch of ash, coffee, and earth. A bit of sweetness gives it a touch of girth, cocoa and touches of caramel up the body and add a counterpoint. The backend and finish has pop, trailing bitter and roasty finish. Nice stuff, a bit lighter overall.. It’ll be interesting how this stands the test of time in a barrel (and if a shorter aging period or back blending is used). However this is on point, not overdone, and flavorful with good flow. While the nose seems a bit underdone that could just be the cold. However it certainly cuts through that on the palate. Nice.

Draft. Black pour. Not a huge aroma the flavor though is phenomenal. Some black licorice, gin and tonic, nice stuff.

Roasty and hoppy. Aroma is mostly cocoa and coffee. The flavor is distinctively Pollyanna. I get coffee, bread, nuts, cereal and light smoke. Warming alcohol on the finish.

On tap at the tap room. Pours a dark black with a medium tan head. Nice head retention, good lacing. Aroma of coffee, licorice , some chocolate notes. Flavor is roasty, dry, with medium bitterness. Full bodied, creamy carbonation. Finishes bitter and nice. Overall, very nice Imperial Stout.
