Thirsty Dog Siberian Night
If the intense, glowing green eyes on the bottle don't entice you, the promise of an Imperial Stout should. And since I'm partial to Ohio breweries, I grab Thirsty Dog's Siberian Night whenever I can. Pours just like you would expect. Black as the abyss with a dark tan head. The complex flavor consists of roasted rye bread, dark fruits, with a bitter finish. It's very good, but perhaps not as full and beat-you-over-the-head aggressive as other RISs. Probably the easiest drinking RIS I have had. The bitterness takes quite a while to saunter off, as well.
I think it's great, even if it doesn't have the power of other RISs.
