Seemed appropriate to drink this great RIS from one of my favorite breweries on National Stout Day...

Dark as night with no light getting through. Head is about a quarter inch of cocoa colored foam. Nice lace sticking to the sides of the glass.

Smell is of cocoa and light espresso.

Knocks it out of the park. Espresso with a very light roast. Very chocolatey. It's roasty without any burnt flavor to it.

Rich and velvety. Thick, but somehow easy drinking. Is it possible to have such a thing as a session Imperial Stout? This beer hides the alcohol so much it's amazing. No burn, nothing. Just chocolatey bliss. I'm a little sad that I only have a couple more bottles of this left. At the same time, I'm really glad that I made the trip out to the pub for this release.

Price: $20.00 Served In: Tulip

Hand delivered by a fellow beer lover from Weymouth, MA.
Shared with two friends who have visited The Alchemist with me and my wife on numerous occasions, so it felt right to share.
Poured a jet black w/ no light able to penetrate. A lovely dark tan head that stuck around with a gentle swirl. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malt and a hint of floral hops. Taste was a tremendous blend/balance of chocolate, bittering hops, toffee, vanilla and a nice malt backbone. Finished less bitter and the toffee and vanilla stuck around and increased the mouthfeel to velvety perfection. Another masterpiece by John on a style I always hoped he would create. Could not wait until 11/11/11 to sample.

Price: $20.00 Served In: Snifter
