2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 33cl. Black with a very small light brown head. Unusual aroma, some sour and wood, hints of wild yeast. Nothing at all what I expected by an Russian Imperial stout. Taste is revealing a great basis beer, but the wine barrel aged is not in my opinion improving the beer. There is constantly a certain sour present. Would like to taste it without any barrel aging. Long lasting finish which finally brings the stout flavours such as liquorice and coffee. The potential of the beer is unfortunate not coming to itís right in this version (my opinion)

Ik drink al niet graag stout, deze riekt redelijk goed, maar de smaak is typisch stout.
