Tsar is rich and powerful, a full bodied Imperial Stout. Malty chocolate, mocha and dark berry fruit-notes preside over a subtle hop profile, whilst a smooth velvety texture in the mouth gives way to a lingering bitter, dark chocolate finish

fiulijn (15310) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle from Mikkeller Shop, Stefansgade, Copenhagen; bottled Aug 2013
Pitch black color with generous compact brown head. Intense aroma of dark chocolate, dark bread, biscuits, yeast, mild aroma of cheese rind, hints of coffee; fascinating. Smooth mouthfeel, although there is some sharp sourness from the dark malts; strong flavor of roasted malt, quite unidirectional, with some ashes, light liquorice; strong bitterness, and also strong roasted malt character in the end.
The flavor is more boring than the aroma. Good but not unforgettable.
