Mission Dark Seas
Mission Dark Seas is a Russian Imperial Stout. Pretty much spot on for the style, and on par with Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout. With so many crazy intense barrel-aged stouts out there these days, it was a bit refreshing to try a new RIS that was so straight forward. Big roast, chocolate, molasses, generic dark fruits, a bit of hop bite and some alcohol on the finish. Not something we get here so once again thanks to my friends Brian & Melissa for hooking me up with this fantastic beer!
