Alesmith is proud to release this long-awaited and intensely aromatic Russian Imperial Stout with Vietnamese coffee. We traditionally brew gallons of Vietnamese coffee, known as Cà Phê Sữa Đá, with Phin-style filter that gently percolates water through ground coffee. The result is a chocolaty and bold tasting coffee that perfectly complements the notes of oak, vanilla, and bourbon in this massive barrel-aged stout. Savor this extremely rare offering now or age at a cool temperature for a truly rewarding experience.

Bottle from one of my IP trades with rischiesd, massive thanks! Pours a pitch black color and a brown head with little retention. Aroma's: roasted, umami, wood, bourbon, vanilla, some chocolate and coffee. Retronasal it's sweetish, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, a bit dark fruit. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet, chocolatey, light roasty, bourbon, just delicious. Full bodied. Not too boozy. Long finish, with some wood, dark chocolate, roast, light bitterness. Superb!
