COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with brown malts, an English traditional specialty malt, we created an Imperial Russian Stout that has won prizes at festivals across Europe from Sweden to Italy. It’s big, black, roasted and complex. We are convinced that not trying this ale will be a mortal sin to your taste buds and beer experience. Oak chips have been put in 40 year old cognac and then added to the beer.

Bottle from kermis shared @ Dean’s Sticky Floor Tasting II. Pours black with a tan head. Gentle aroma of molasses, caramel and vanilla. The taste is mellow, matching the aroma. Absolutely wonderful

330ml bottle poured in a snifter. A: Pours a deep brown to black color, many remains in the bottom. Forms a small and dark beige head when poured. Good retention, it never disappears completely leaving a brown, fizzy bubbled layer. Some lacings are formed S: Strong notes of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts and wood. Citrus and earthy hops and alcohol in the end T: Very strong taste. Dominated by roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. The 100IBUs do really count here: Deliciously bitter. Strong personality. It’s a dry and bitter beer after all. It has a very creamy and molasses body but not much about sugar M: Extremely creamy and molasses body. Low carbonation. Delicious bitter aftertaste O: Absolutely drinkable beer despite of the 10.2% ABV. Great beer [ BA Review @ 2/11/2012 ]

"if not for the out of control yeast which bubbled over and gave the beer major floatie issues even with a slow-ass gentle pour, this beer would have been epic. the aroma and flavor are simply fantastic! reminiscent, a little, of bottled NC Rasputin, but with more tar, a touch of dark fruit, licorice, and smoke. carbonation high, but the feel manages to still be big slick and oly. awesome beer i’d like to have kegged...the yeast issue was almost a turn-off."

Procent (153) - POLAND - JUN 25, 2014
W aromacie czuć ciemną czekoladę, lekkie nuty wanilii, cherry i delikatnie owoce (wiśnia, śliwka itp). Barwa to ciemny brąz przechodzący w lekką wiśnie. Piana bardzo niewielka, ale drobnopęcherzykowa i dobrze oblepia szkło. W smaku kawa i goryczka. Poza goryczką piwo jest dość gładkie, pełne w odczuciu, nasycenie średnie, bądź niskie ku średniemu. Ogólnie na jak imperial stouta, to za dużo goryczki, a za mało w smaku nut słodkich, likierowych, waniliowych itp.

Imperial stout davvero speciale, con note vinose ampie e calde, intrecciate con cioccolato, caffé, malti tostati, un leggero tocco affumicato e di legno di quercia. Corpo denso e presenza alcolica ben bilanciata. Ottima e senza difetti!

Ughsmash (7175) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2014
750mL bottle, 2009 vintage, #63/153. Poured inky black with no head sticking around. The aroma picked up a blend of chocolates (skewed toward the sweeter side), vanilla, molasses, and honey, with complementary accents of oak and cognac.. great spicy cognac kick right on the back of the nose. The flavor found a little licorice to go with rich vinous notes, vanilla, and cocoa at the core.. wisps of smoke and charred oak laced throughout.. mostly sweet cognac and smoky cocoa on the long, belly-warming finish.. very tasty! Heavy-bodied with low carbonation.. coating and well-balanced.. awesome stuff!

Bottle share thanks to Taylor. Pitch black. Minimal head. Nose of coffee and roast. Taste is slightly tart with dark coffee grains and a light astringency. Woody character adds a nice drying character.
