COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
En "Imperial Stout" med potens. Svart som natten och stark som synden, framkallar den kraftiga känslor och värmer hjärtan. Kan med fördel användas för att bota kallt sinnelag. Öltypen har "testats kliniskt" i Ryssland sedan Katarina den storas tid.

MacBoost (1288) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Pours black with a khaki head, although it looks a little thin coming out of the bottle and settling into the glass. Very nice chocolate brownie aroma, roasted marshmallows, vanilla. Wow. The aromas really "pop". Taste is similar, vanilla frosted brownie but oh so dry... So damn good. I could drink this all night. The finish is bitter chocolate with just a touch of hops. No real alcohol detected. So good. So, so good.

Cunningham (4526) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2013

Appearance: Sinful black color with a big bubbly beige head that last for a long time. Some lacing.
Aroma: Lots of chocolate and coffee. Some roasted malt.
Palate: Thick oily body. Slightly sweet, with some bitterness. Creamy carbonation.
Taste: Rich smooth toffee, chocolate and coffee flavor. Some roasted malt in the background. Very well hidden alcohol.
Overall impression: Well done Dugges. Powerful and tasty Imperial Stout without being to heavy. Im sure the Russian Tsar would be really pleased with this one. Well I am, and there is no Tsar anymore.
Location: Bottle from a trade with Nisse666

Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Black and clear with what I thought was a reddish tint so I must be getting old. Looked thin but it feels thick and creamy. First impression was I loved it. Drinkable and worth buying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BMMillsy (1392) - Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Pours dark brown to black with no head. Looks worringly thin and flat. Aroma is very unique with big noted of chocolate, licorice, and brandy or cherry. Something salty on the nose like black bean sauce. Flavor is nice with a chocolate Good n' Plenty flavor. A little thin but carbonation seems about right. Sloght bitterness lingers. Decent stout but there is better stuff out there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dwyerpg (4579) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 26, 2012
As with the half version, this was very flat. No head at all. The beer tasted similar. Very little carbonation. A complete disappointment with both of these and a waste of money.
