Beer Review - Boxing Rock Brewing U-889 Russian Imperial Stout

I am trying U-889 Russian Imperial Stout, it is a limited release from Boxing Rock Brewing  in Shelburne NS. It comes in at 8.89% ABV and is brewed with with locally roasted Just Us! Coffee and Madagascar Bourbon vanilla beans. It is extremely dark in color, almost black, with a light carbonation and thin head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee and sweetness. The taste is sweetness initially with a chocolate, coffee dryness in the finish. Very nice beer
