235 Grandville SW
Grand Rapids, MI13F. Russian Imperial Stout
Big roasted grain aroma. Coffee isn't subtle.
No hops at all.
Jet black with brown head that really persists
and laces. It is what one would expect.
Roasted coffee, the coffee flavor is actually
subtle. There is no bitterness at all from the
roasted grains; really smooth! Nice chocolate
notes, but these are subtle as well. Fantastic
Exceptionally creamy. Big bodied, as would be
to style. Hops aren't noticable and are very much
in the background and need to be searched out.
Overall Impression: (9/10)
This beer is absolutely super! To style and very
smooth. Coffee and chocolate doesn't overpower
in the least. A great balance of chocolate,
malt, coffee and hops. This is what
I look for in an Imperial Stout!
