Smells sweet & has a coffee after taste. Thick. Same consistency as chocolate milk. Nice to have one or two late at night.

Tastes soy saucy but also thick and sweet.

Old Raspy is one of my favorite stouts - thick and rich, strong but not sweet. Proper stout.

Serving: 12 oz bottle poured into a snifter Didn't expect this one. Well balanced beer. Big and roasty, with a nice sweet maltiness to compliment. Very complex, can't really describe everything going on in there. Very enjoyable.

More bubbly than I expected. Not my favorite stout but not bad.

Very rich and intense, with a warm finish. Slight metallic taste initially but the aftertaste is sublime.

Super imperial Russian stout. Presentation is brownish black with a soft milk chocolate head however medium size bobbles. The aroma is of mild roasted coffee with may be some toffee. However, this is a taste sensation. Starts as a soft, creamy, robust stout with a powerful/aggressive hoppy bit and dark roast to finish. There are even more complexities than that. 4.5 of 5 stars.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours black/very dark brown with a light brown head that lingers for a little while. Lacing on the glass was nice. Nice roasted aroma with hints of coffee and maybe some toffee. The flavour seemed far different, though. Each sip seemed to have a metallic, hoppy bite, which kind of ruined this stout for me. It was overpowering and, although the roasted malts and coffee flavour came out in the end, I couldn't prevent the knee jerk reaction I had throughout drinking this beer. Mouthfeel was thick and syrupy. I don't think I'll this again for a long time.

Rich, flavorful. Slow drinker. Update: good with honey goat cheese.

This beer is a trip and a half. It's got everything you like in a stout mixed with everything you like in an IPA. Another thing I like about this beer? It's 9% alcohol by volume so it'll get you buzzed pretty quickly.
