Nose wise you get almost a sweet milk chocolate sense. The head is lasting pillow. 10.25% and, yes, you can sort of tell, though maybe not quite 10.25%. Deep obsidian.
This is a Russian Imperial: no doubt. The malt sense is deep, the alcohol high; though that sense could be more background and the malt/hop sense higher. More hops and a bit of a deeper roast could help to balance it out. There’s so much here. So promising. But with balance… wow.
Worth a limited quaff. Balance it out and this would be an RIS fan’s idea of pure heaven.
