as Imperial Stout. Mocha, cappuccino and creamy aroma. Black, brown head, good lace. Chocolate, mocha, sweet, light bitter, black currant. Medium body, flavourful, easy going.
22 oz. bottle shared by Andy- thanks again, Andy! He’s our local St. George hookup. Pours a dark, deep brown- not really opaque, with a small tan ring for a head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, black olives, earth, and molasses. The flavor is sweeter than the nose, with caramel and roasted malts, molasses, raisins, toasted brown sugar, and a little earthiness. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. No alcohol present. Good imperial stout. jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2012
22oz bomber from a trade with DoctorB2B, Thanks! Poured into a snifter. Pours black with about 2 fingers of frothy dark tan head. Aroma of coffee, brown sugar and roasty malt. Taste is light bitter and very lightly sweet. Coffee and brown sugar. Medium-full bodied with a thick and creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long brown sugar finish. Overall, this beer is great. I would love to age one of these and try it again. VAbeersnob (7) - Seaford, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2012 does not count
This beer was quite good. This beer pours nice with a good 3 finger head. The aroma has a brilliant chocolate and molasses thing going on with it. The taste was very nice. It offers chocolate, malt, and a nice sweet taste. The body was creamy and not as thick as I was expecting. The finish was average, malty, and smooth. The ABV was hidden very well. Pretty good for a local beer. Good winter beer. nuplastikk (6220) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2012
22oz bomber split with the Madison crew. Smooth chocolate tones, maybe a hint of licorice. Excellent, quite drinkable. Some oily burnt roast. Subdued, mellow carbonation. Some eastern European feels, light pungency. Interesting, not overbearing.

Aroma: The nose is roasty and sweet, some chocolate, caramel, and a little dark fruit
Appearance: It pours a dark brown-black color with fairly foamy brown head and decent lacing
Flavor: The taste is medium sweet, roasty, with notes of chocolate and caramel, mild-to-mid bitterness
Palate: The body is medium (average for the style), with a smooth, creamy feel, and a soft carbonation
I put more then a few months of age on this one, but it seemed to hold up pretty well. Thanks, Justin, this was a rather solid RIS. It seemed to be on-style to me. They hit on fairly well at what they were attempting to do here. I would drink this one again.
Black. Very heavily roasted malt, and some soy sauce. Medium palate, but very light flavors and aromas. Disappointing. BelgianBeerGal (4039) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Fresh bottle from the brewery. Gorgeous dark pour with a huge, bubbly brown head. Big aroma of molasses, pecans and dark, brown sugar; reminds me of flavored oatmeal. Really pleasant flavor too. Starts a little sweet and then finishes with some bitterness. Full mouthfeel. I was honestly surprised how nice this was; complete surprise. badgerben (5121) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Black color with a small head. Light roasty and coffee aroma. Light coffee flavor. Very thin. Skyview (5942) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Received 22-oz bomber via trade as St. George Russian Imperial Stout. Pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with a fast dissipating tan head. Aroma of toasted dark malt, molasses, dark chocolate and soy sauce. Taste is medium to full bodied, flavors of toasted dark malt, chocolate a hint of coffee and some soy sauce. Finish is slightly dry with a dark chocolate and toasted malt aftertaste.
