Meterman: So how is life as an admin?
Flavius: Players know the power I wield! They play differently when I am around.
M: They are giving you space because all the friendly fire you dish out.
F: No Way! It is the fear of being banned.
M: No, it is the fear when you accidentally shoot an alarmed car in expert mode.

Imperial Russian Stout Spring 2007 (Stone Brewing)

Rate Beer 4.22 100th percentile
Beer Advocate A

Taste +4

The nose is just as expected from an imperial stout; coffee, bitter chocolate, molasses and alcohol. To ingest this brew is a little challenging; you must chew it! It feels in the mouth like an espresso infused dark chocolate bar. There is a certain smoothness within this beer; despite the heavy alcohol tingle that travels all over the mouth. I must not forget to mention the roasted malt and black currant flavours.

Aftertaste +1

The roasted malt fades away to leave that mouth coating bitter chocolate. Sadly, the aftertaste is not long enough. It calls you and begs you to drink again.

Alcohol Content +1 10.8%

Ouch! It is hard to taste the booze on this one. Luckily this is a thick, sipping beer. If this one were easy to chug, there would be problems.

Value +1

This is one of the greatest beers I have every tried; I will purchase immediately upon sight.
Ingame Enhancement +1

I had this beer after riding the California Screaming roller coaster with my father. There is a certain satisfaction in hearing your father scream like a little girl.

Overall 8/10 BOOM HEADSHOT

This is a sinfully delicious beer. Anyone who is a fan of the thick stout style will love it.
