Really good beer, no one flavour really jumps out at you. Dark chocolate, woody/oak, leather, vanilla and some dark fruit i can’t quite put my finger on. Quality beer

Poured from a 330ml bottle dated 12/04/14. Aroma is fairly malt forward with quite a bit of dark chocolate and roast. Lighter tobacco and leather notes. Moderate dark fruit character with prune, plum and berry. Light alcohol spice. Pours black with a medium sized, moderately thick, light mocha head that steadily recedes to the edges where it lingers. No lacing and moderately long legs. Flavor is moderately sweet with quite a bit of chocolate and dark fruit upfront. Fruit is plums, prunes, raisins and cherry. Some moderate roast notes with a bit of caramel and toffee. Medium light leather and ash with a light alcohol spice. Medium bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium carbonation. Low, but slightly present astringency and low to medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice stout and one that will age well, but drinking this really highlights for me how the imperial stout style has changed to be big, chewy, sweet, chocolate with some roast and little esters. Compared to today’s hyped stouts this isn’t thick enough and there are way too many fruit esters and dark roast characteristics. I like the thinner mouthfeel, but am not a huge fan of the way the esters play with the ash and leather notes.

Great beer. Wonderful looks, great aroma and superb taste. This beer tastes strong and fresh at the same time. Perfect alone and together with some meat.

Bouteille "Cease & Desist", degustée après 13 mois. Robe noire opaque sans col de mousse, beaucoup de grumeaux en suspension au fond du verre. Pratiquement aucune effervescence, ce qui rend le liquide un peu flat. Arômes de baies confites, chocolat noir et anis. Très légère torréfaction mais le nez est surtout orienté vers le sucre. En bouche, encore sucré. Baies confites, raisins secs, anis. Une finale qui tend vers le chocolat et du café noir un peu dilué. Les saveurs de torréfaction et de bois qu’on retrouve souvent dans les RIS sont assez effacées ici. La texture est elle aussi légère et le corps est moyen. Très faible carbonation qui rend le liquide agréable et doux au palais.

Small bottle as "Rasputin". Dark chestnut brown body, small head. Sweet aroma with cocoa nibs, brown sugar and dried dates. Not getting Saaz here. BTW, why do they want to use Saaz in most of their beers? Do they not have access to other hops? Sweet taste with more dried dates, cherries and dark chocolate. Very fruity and plenty of cocoa in taste. A bit too sweet for me but if you like it this way the go ahead. I don’t know if Rasputin would have liked this drink - apparently he liked wine but they really needed to persuade him to try that sweet cake...

jawlo (297) - Katowice, POLAND - SEP 10, 2015
Aromat: czkolada z likierem, kawa, paloność, wiśnie. Wygląd: czarna barwa, piana dość obfita, beżowa. Smak: słodycz w postaci czekolady z kawą, delikatne wiśnie, dość wysoka palona goryczka, na finiszu alkohol minimalnie grzeje w przełyku. Tekstura: piwo jest pełne, ale niestety nielikierowe, wysycenie umiarkowane. Ogólne wrażnie: bardzo dobry RIS, świetne aromaty i smak, jednak można by trochę dodać ciała w celu uzyskania jeszcze większej pełni. Na duży plus należy zaliczyć dobrze ukryty alkohol.

This beer looks and smells godly. A molasse smell sweet and pure. The taste is all that you wish for a stout. Theres a distant and perfect taste of molasse and white sugar. Cheers and enjoy!
