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).
