Stone Imperial Russian Stout
Beer pours black with a deep tan head of foam.
Cocoa and coffee flavors dominate, along with some fruity fermentation esters and some yeasty breadiness.
Again, the beer is mostly about roasted malts. Bittersweet cocoa and coffee flavors are the major players, along with fruitiness, hints of anise, and yeastiness, followed by a smooth, balanced, not sweet finish.
This beer is very full bodied, and very smooth!
