Pours a thick, oily sable with a thick, chocolaty tan head. Strong, mouth-watering aroma teases the nose with roast malt, quality coffee and chocolate notes plus a touch of licorice. Rich flavor has notes of coffee, roast malt, semi-sweet chocolate, and bitter, woody hops. Firm, smooth mouthfeel has some good fizz and leaves a smoky and surprisingly hoppy finish. Only good people could have brewed a beer this good. Man your X-wings...

Drawn thick and the deepest, darkest black with a moderate deeply tanned to light brown head with exceptional retention. Aroma of dark fruits, chocolate and espresso fill the nose. The chocolate and espresso are present from the beginning, with a hint of the alcohol (it is 13.9% afterall). Thick and heavy and creamy in the mouth in a pleasant way. As good as it was, would be soooo much better on a cold winter day - or even a cool late fall day. Maybe the best (I'd have to look back at my ratings) Russian Impy that I've ever had.
