Had this 1st, thought it tasted too sweet, then had Cannibalism. Turns out Blvck is more roasty & coffee & a little milky/creamy. While "Cann" is fruity & too caramel sweet. Blvck tastes closer to a RIS as far as I think, even though it's a porter.

It's fruity (cherry), chocolate, caramel. Not really what I expect from a Russian Imperial Stout. I'm starting to think Adroit doesn't know how to make one. It should be roasty & boozy, at least I think so. Or maybe I'm the dumb one w/ a crappy palate.

A unique stout. Roasty & coffee/chocolate like a stout, also a little melon, & I SWEAR a very distinct buttery corn smell & flavor too. It might be the African Queen hops. It's supposed lemongrass/melon flavor mixed w/ the stout malts may be causing it.

Really good! The vanilla is distinct but not overpowering. Then whiskey. The brown sugar or caramel flavor is there. They say figs or dates are there, but I don't know what those taste like, so I would say plums or prunes. A little too sweet for a 4.75.

Had to try this next to the regular Mouflan. It tastes like you'd expect. Flying Mouflan but w/ bourbon & hoppiness gone. But after 4 years of aging, it also has a raisin & leathery taste. Which I really like, but others may hate.
