About This Beer
“Quoth the Raven, ‘I want more — Russian Imperial Stout!’” – Edgar Allen Poe.
Okay, so “The Raven” isn't about beer. But maybe if Poe had a can of Grandfather Raven he could of just, ya know, chilled out about the bird.
Every gulp floods your palate with rich RIS flavors. Gooey hints of caramel squares swirl through the malts, bolstering the body into a silky smooth sip. Meanwhile, whispers of roasted coffee play foil to the bittersweet baker’s chocolate nuances, anchoring the brew in toasted coziness.
Roasty Thick Dark Complex Chocolatey
Chocolate Malt 2 Row Barley Crystal Malt Carafa Malt Roast Malt
A phenomenal imperial stout to measure all others against if they aren’t Old Rasputin.
After reading the label I expected a good caramel/chocolate taste. It wasn’t there… which made the taste disappointing.
very rich, full stout with nice dark notes and an almost fluffy mouthfeel.
we’ll-done, balanced imperial stout
Pretty thin body. Sone chelate notes and very light roastiness. More of a porter than imperial stout.
rather light for an imperial stout. but that also made it more palatable as well. I enjoyed it
good imperial stout, nothing flashy
other than the higher abv not sure why this is a Russian imperial as opposed to a ‘plain old’ stout. that said - it does go down easy. so in the words of Dr. Sheldon Cooper -“this is good, whatever it is “
Just average not much to write ✍️ about..
didn't get much caramel off it, but good dark chocolate and coffee. smooth
Beautifully done stout. ✔️
nothing but good old stout! similar to Old Rasputin. loved it!
well done imperial stout. it's nice to have a smooth one without adjuncts.
Good imperial stout with just a touch of chocolate and coffee with a good bite.
Very nice combination of roasty malts makes for a tasty brew. Subtle coffee and chocolate undertones blend nicely.
I got the coffee flavor from the first sip. but no caramel. ABV doesn't smack you in the face either. 👍🏾
roasty and leathery. really delivers.
Need more instantly crushable brews on this app. Light, roasty, and decent abv. I don’t know it other people were looking for more depth of flavor but this is a straightforward stout.
