4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours super-dark black color with thin dark brown head. Aroma is wood, rust, chocolate plus a bit of hops. Taste is chocolate, wood, roast, hops, flowers (roses). No sign of sweetness, quite bitter. Very dry aftertaste. Texture is very oily, consistency is quite thick. Carbonation is low. Very special beer, but probably not for everyone. Truly deserves the "imperial" in its name.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours petrol color with a very tan head like a espresso coffee. Aroma is quite metallic, slightly notes of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Flavor is quite soar and bitter notes of ashes. Full body with low carbonation and a weird finish. I didn’t expect that for a Russian Imperial Stout. The same it was for the Porter.

swingtop bottle. rich shade of almost black with almost no head, suggesting perhaps the bottle wasn’t well sealed. aroma of cocoa powder and vanilla; strange olive brine saltiness, light caramel. will have to find a fresh bottle of this as i’m sure it wasn’t meant to taste like this example

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bouteille (7/5/2014). Robe huileuse d'un noir profond, petite mousse café peu persistante. Nez de caramel, de grain de café , de pruneaux avec des notes légèrement lactées. Bouche douce et acide. Notes de malt torréfié , café et chocolat avec une finale acide de petit lait, fruitée sur le pruneaux et légèrement métallique . Carbonation faible et piquante. Une stout qui a des atouts indéniables mais gâchée par une acidité lactique anormale et désagréable.

Bottle in a field in the Czech Republic. Pitch black pour, thin tan head. Aroma of burnt malts, tar, tobacco, ash, licorice, molasses and asphalt. Flavor is very bitter roasted malts, harsh and heavy. Nice and in your face imperial stout.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle @ Pivovarsky Dum, Prague. Pours an oily black body with a small caramel-hued head. Nose is metal, licorice, blood-liver-ish tones, hints of chocolate. Weird, and not in a good way. Taste is sour cherry-like tones, chocolate, coffee, grains and hints of licorice and ashes. Full body, medium carbonation. Not really working out well.
