Beer Review: St. Ambroise Stout Impériale Russe (Canada)

Howdy all. Sorry about the late post, midterms and all that in the way. So let's cut to the chase and get straight to the beer that I shall be reviewing for you today: the Imperial Russian Stout from St. Ambroise.

Looks: A nice dark body, almost like black velvet, along with a nice thick and creamy head that's between dark-beige and light chocolate.
Smells: Black coffee, along with a very rich dark chocolate smell (very powerful might I add). A slight hint of roasted malt and nuts, along with a small presence of the smell of Bourbon.
Tastes: Dark chocolate, dark fruit, moccha. Bitter, yet sweet. The taste of Bourbon is very hidden at first, but as your beer warms up, it really starts to come out a lot more. Very rich and very filling.

It's a great beer, especially now that the colder weather is starting to come in as the soft taste of Bourbon will definitely warm you up. A very good balance between the bitterness and the sweetness. Just be sure to take your time with it if you ever come across one.

PS: Since you guys are pretty split up, but leaning more towards more beer reviews, I'll try to focus on those. Of course I'll be slipping in pub/restaurants reviews in there too (and because Jacob asked so nicely, I'll even do other alcoholic beverages - never bad to mix things up once in a while).
