A decadent stout, inspired by the special British ales exported to the Russian Court, during the 18th century. It is black and viscous like crude oil from the oil fields in the Caspian Sea. The flavor is dominated by dark notes of burnt sugar, spicy hops and smokiness from peaked malt. Unpasteurized * Unfiltered * Bottle-conditioned.
Ingredients: water, barley malt, sugar, hops, yeast.

Cybercat (4086) - Georgia, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Strong, smoky aroma has notes of molasses, yeast, caramel, coffee and licorice. Pours a rich sable just a whisker above night black with a thick, very persistent tan head that "pillows" as time goes by. Flavor is - superb. Smoky, molasses, roast malt, quality coffee, nutty, woody and caramel flavors battle for the attention of your taste buds. It has a surprisingly strong component of hop bitterness, rather sharp and green-woody, the only weakness in the otherwise outstanding taste. Smooth, firm texture has good fizz and leaves an oily, smoky, lip-smacking finish. OK, how does one say "cheers" in Russian?

Procent (330) - POLAND - MAY 31, 2015
Ładny aromat - karmel, likier, suszone owoce. mocno palony. Barwa czarna, obfita, beżowa piana, kremowa u szczytu z ładnym lacingiem. W smaku likier czekoladowy, paloność, jest lekkie utlenienie, ale poza tym bardzo aksamitne, sporo ciała, alkoolu praktycznie nie czuć. Wysycenie średnie, mogłoby być niższe, by uwypuklić aksamitność. Dobry, solidny RIS.

pinkzambia (1694) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle: I had this at the annual Stout tasting in Boise hosted by some Beer Advocate guys (gasp) where they allow some rating whores in from ratebeer. This brew had a funky aroma with weird flavors to follow. not a fan.

kerenmk (3368) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 22, 2015
Bottle shared at a smoked beer tasting at our place. Thanks Desverger. Black, with a light tan head. Alcoholic and velvety aroma, some nuts too. Very fruity, fermented fruit, sweetish and coke-like taste. Full body, a little fizz. coke-like finish.

Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Black with a tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, alcohol, a bit of chocolate and some licorice. Rather sweet flavor with dark fruits, licorice, a bit of chocolate, and alcohol. Medium to full-bodied, kinda boozy.

Theydon_Bois (12870) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2015
Bottle split at Chriso Easter tasting, 04/04/15. Pitch black with a decent tan covering. Nose is rich chocolate, spice, earthy roast, toffee. Taste comprises dark fruit notes, chocolate, molasses, toffee fudge, peppery spice, toasted brown sugar. Medium + body, fine carbonation, drying close. No game changer but a decent enough impy.

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
Pours a opaque black with a moderate sized tan head that slowly settles and leaves a little bit of lace. Aroma is peat/smoke, dark dried fruits, burnt sugar, mild roasted malts. Flavour is dark dried fruits, roasted malts, chocolate, peat, smoke, mild bitterness, licorice and a dry finish. Fantastic beer!

Reimer96 (1543) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 17, 2015
Pours an opaque black with a small brown head that leaves good legs on the glass. Aroma of anise, roasted malts, cocoa, smoke, campfire and black licorice... Great Aroma. Taste is peated malts, roasted malts, black licorice, burnt sugar and a smooth bitterness on the finish. Complex and balanced with a bit of a cloying mouthfeel likely due to the addition of sugar.
