Cisco Brewers Imperial Stout

Opened a bottle of the Cisco Brewers Russian Imperial Stout with our friends this past Friday night. This is part of their slightly limited Island Reserve series.
The nose was roasty with some citrusy hops in the back. Body followed with the roast starting things off like a normal imperial stout but then huge citrus and bitterness finishing things off. This was really reminiscent of 21st Amendment Back in Black though slightly hoppier. Not quite as hoppy as Victory Storm King though. My friends enjoyed this but I'll admit I like my stouts with less hops. Just not a huge fan of the super hopped ones. If you like Storm King, though, you'd almost definitely like this one.
