Boris The Spider Russian Imperial Stout

 A few bottles of Boris The Spider Russian Imperial Stout came home to Miami from Long Island with one of my friends who likes to share! Boris is guarding a few glasses of his stout on the label. 10% alcohol. Bottled On 01/13/2017

Cocoa and coffee aroma, very nice. Rich and creamy to start, full of cocoa powder, coffee then followed by prunes and a hint of cherries. Just a touch of char and roast and smoke round this out, along with a little heat in the chest.

Initially sweet, but a bitter answer does come. The pruney flavors though do build and detract from the other flavors. Not bad but that one element for me was unwelcome. Check it out.
