MISSION DARK SEAS RUSSIAN IMPERIAL STOUT

Mission Brewery Dark Seas Russian Imperial Stout. “A rich and roasty aroma, notes of plum and port and a velvety texture so luscious it just might make a grown man weep” it says on the label.

Jet black with a fine dark brown head. Beautiful chocolate malt aroma. Smooth, velvety mouthfeel, full body with low carbonation. Rich dark chocolate followed by a solid roast malt flavour, closing the show with a moderately dry and bitter finish.

The relatively high 9.8% ABV is well hidden. There is sufficient bitterness to stop it suffering a sickly sweetness like a lot of high ABV beers. 

This is the kind of beer that’ll warm the cockles of your heart. I could see pirates smashing down pints of this before heading into battle.

 

9/10
