Deep, deep ruby - almost to the point of being black. head disappears quickly. Nose is cherry cola, a bit of bitterness. Really sweet. Cola continues, with alcohol and artificial cherry. Good but too damn sweet!

Bought in the bottle form a Russian bar (can’t recall name) on New Years Eve in Derby.
Quite fizzy & sweet for a stout. Pretty stickt too, but not bad for all that. Nice to have a bottle of it but I certainly wouldn’t want to much...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I drank way to much of this while vacationing in Belize. It was the only decent beer (compared to Belikin Stout) that I could find in the local markets. From the first sip, I thought that this stout tasted like Kahlua. Very sweet with coffee, plum and chocolate flavors. This was an amazing pairing with some chocolate chips cookies!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruddy "clear" black with little to no head and lots of bird’s eye carbonation. Aroma is meaty and alcoholic with some roast, but not a whole lot. Smooth drink, but chalky with some candy notes (oxidation perhaps?). Not really roasty tasting and, though it’s in the nose, not alcohol tasting. I also got some sherry or port in the aroma and taste later in the bottle. Full body with a lot of carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle- Pours a dark black body with a brownish head that is quite bubbly. Aroma is alcohol, like a port, slight coffee, with some sour malty characters. Taste is like malty, sour and coffee with some hintsd of what seem to be red wine. Reminds me of a port in a way. Leaves a nice bittermess in the throat that left me wanting more. Decent !
