Mission Brewery Dark Seas
Mission Brewery Dark Seas, a Russian Imperial Stout, while at Mad Mex in Monroeville. The beer pours a black color with a bubbly tan head. The aroma consists of sweet chocolate, milk, cream, toasted malts, and has hints of coffee. The taste is smooth and chocolaty with a strong toasted malt flavor. A caramel finish with milk and a coffee after taste with a nice dryness round out the flavors. The alcohol content is 10.5% ABV. This was a rather good Russian Imperial Stout with all the right flavors and a good balance. I would definitely order another glass of this if I see it.
