this beer is a typical Russian imperial stout. Taste it ... It is very good. De molten beers are very good

12oz-ish bottle courtesy of blomster. Thanks, Christer! Pours a deep, dark chocolate-brown color; modest light-brown head with decent retention. Roast-forward aroma, with bitter chocolate and hints of char alongside a light honeyed sweetness; cognac contribution very quiet. Medium-full body; light CO2; modest amounts of honeyed sweetness alongside generous roast, milk/dark chocolate, and very soft, lightly tannic barrel character; there’s also a light, piney hopping here that balances things quite nicely; a pervasive, solid bitterness with a fair amount of subtle hop flavor behind that core, malt-forward approach. Lasting dark/bitter chocolate, roast, and modest bitterness in the finish.

Scopey (12720) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2012
Bottle, thanks to Leighton. It pours very dark brown, near black, with a moderate tan head. The nose is toasted coconut, chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, vanilla, wood and alcohol. The taste is chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, toffee, coconut, chewy malt, earth and chocolate digestive biscuit, with alcohol warmth in the finish. Full body and low-medium carbonation. Complex, yet very well balanced. Delicious!

Idiosynkrasie (6548) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 12, 2012
330ml bottle. Deepest dark brown with small, stable, lacing, creamy to frothy beige head. Smokey, woody aroma, leather, ashes, almost sulphur. The first sip’s impression is: heavy - heavy in its literal sense. Full body, even the glass seems to be filled with a fluid doubling the weight of water. A cognac note is present in taste throughout; a leather-like woody note predominates in the beginning; coffee gains influence with time; dark chocolate reigns the finish, liquorice sweetness sticks on palate, lips, teeth. Even a Black IPA note, often concentrating hop and malt to a carrot-like taste, is present. Very good, ageless beauty in its simplicity seen from distance.

Leighton (18745) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2012
Bottle at home in London with Paul. Pours oily black-brown with a creamy, light beige cream head. Big woody, hard alcohol aroma, some burnt rubber and cocoa and dark sugar. There is a strong wood character in the flavor, medium to strong sweetness, charred malts, dark chocolate. Some burnt grass. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warm finish, lots of lightly dry wood, some mild smoke, cocoa, faint spice, scorched earth, moss, some dark fruits. A very impressive beer. Big and bold with tons going on. Excellent.

Bottle split amongst friends. What a gem of a beer! Great aroma of bourbon, woody notes, chocolate and slight coffee grind. Absolutely stellar beer!

Huubs (142) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2012
Pours black with a minimal head, which fades away quite quickly. Flavor of coffee, smoke and cognac. Taste is mostly coffee with a bit of cognac and chocolate. It’s a bit sticky/creamy. Ends with a little bitter. Aldus Huubs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
