Poured from a 500 ml bottle. Pours black with dirty oil hues and a tan head. This is a very roasty beer, coffee, bitter chocolate, resinous hops, smoky, tobacco. This is a solid imperial stout. It does finish on the dry side making it easy to drink. Well done Red Rock! mikem409 (2032) - bloomfield, Michigan, USA - JUN 7, 2013

So few ratings. Is this a wale? Big thanks to douglas88! Near black pour with a tan head. Aroma of pine, chocolate, and lots of roasted/ash notes. A bit too ashy for me really, and it has an odd bitterness that keeps me from really enjoying this one. Great mouthfeel for this, would have never guessed 10% either.

Pours black with a small head. Aroma of dark malts. Not a bad beer overall.

Bottle at Red Rock Brewing Co., Salt Lake City. Pours hazy black with a thinning, beige head. The aroma contains roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, some hops and toffee. It tastes medium bitter with light sweet chocolatey hints and a toasty, medium long finish. Full body, oily texture, soft fizzy carbonation. Hides the ABV well, but a heavy drinker nonetheless. A balanced dessert beer for a good night. EdInSaltLake (748) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - APR 15, 2013
Roasty, citrus fruit aroma. Malt flavor is pretty sweet, but finishes drier--not cloying at all. Cocoa-like roasted flavor; Fruity, spicy (hops?), molasses. Can smell a little alcohol, but can’t taste it. mikey (508) - farmington, Utah, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Should rate this one again sometime
Looks like motor oil with a nice light brown head. The nose is huge with roasted malt & baker’s chocolate. The tastes starts with big roasted notes with espresso and dark chocolate. A nice bed of toffee & caramel come next with a strong burst of pine in the finish. This Russian Imperial is stout is dryer than some, but it’s huge roasted character & fresh hop bite make a nice, highly drinkable stout. A chocolate chip cookie would be the perfect partner for this beer.
