Homebrew Brent at the Shvitzing Matilda Brewery in Lake Worth, Florida. No joking! Chocolate! Russian! Imperial! Stout! Brent was nice enough to share this with me last week when I finally met him at Beer Tasting Extravaganza 4. The homemade label featuring the Kremlin was also done by Brent and is very cool.
Chocolate on top of chocolate aroma, sweet and delicious. There are also little whiffs of vanilla and a touch of alcohol there. Creamy smooth texture. Nice chocolate and cocoa flavors, almost milky. Licorice and vanilla are also in play, poking in and out. The 9.56% alcohol definitely brings out all the flavors, making each stand on its own. Medium body but extremely low carbonation. Great flavors could have used a carbonation pick-me-up, but next time you're in Lake Worth, you'll know where to go. Nice job, Brent!
