LongShot - Five Crown Imperial Stout by Boston Beer Company (Sam Adams)
Russian Imperial Stout
8.90 % ABV

Created by Joe Formanek.
For the past 15 years, Joe has been brewing his Russian Imperial Stout. This malt-forward brew has a rich complexity, with roasty and chocolate notes, yet enough hop bitterness to balance out the sweetness. This satisfying winter brew is full-bodied with an enjoyable velvety smoothness.

(Served in a snifter)
A- The inky jet black body supports a cocoa tan head of cream that takes on an espresso crema being thick and lasting.

S- The earthy slightly fruity dark chocolate malt aroma has some leather notes mixed in and gives is a good depth.

T- The big roasted coco notes has a natural tootsie roll malt flavor with a prune hint in the finish. There are some dark mellow roasted malt flavors that linger just a moment without any bitterness.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a spicy little carbonation but no real alcohol heat.

O- This beer has a well-blended depth of dark malt and some good yeast character making it a very nice beer to sip several in a row.
