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.

Countbeer (4372) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle @ ZZT’11 #2: Thanks to Benzai: No foam, tan ish bubbles on top of a black beer. Smell liquorice, light salty, soya sauce. Taste is a good full mix of coffee, burned malts, liquorice, bitter, bitter, tar, soya, salt. Good special mix. Low carbo, full body, soft mouthfeel and a creamy texture.

Benzai (8107) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle from trade with Tkrjukoff, tried at ‘Zieke Zuiden Tasting II’. Pitch black, opaque color, small brown head. Smell coffee, roasty, smoke and burned malts. Taste coffee, roasty, bitter and actually a lot more: complex taste. Very nice carbonation, medium to full body.

Bricks (589) - Delaware, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Smells like a typical stout w/ emphasis on coffee. Dark in appearance as expected. Taste and palate were really rough with a dull cough syrup essence that becomes stronger throughout. Not a favorite.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2011
500ml Bottle: Aroma of malt, chocolate, coffee, slight hard roasting, slight lactose, and the tiniest hint of alcohol. Poured pitch black in color with a tiny, tan head around the edges only. Opaque. Slightly sparkling. Flavor is light to medium sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malt, coffee, light chocolate, hard roasting, light tar, and slight lactose. Medium body. Lightly oily, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, roast, chocolate, slight tar, coffee finish is dry. 9.5%ABV is a tad noticeable in the aroma, but nowhere else.

after4ever (6108) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2011
500. Pours black with no head or lace after a few minutes of hanging out. Big soy nose, inky, dark, roasty, very much a formidable beast to contend with. Slick, thick, heavy body. Soy, ink, roast, and tar on the mid palate. Dense roasty salty finish. Not that craziest or most innovative impy to come along, but a big beasty that’s fun to drink.

Pours a translucent dark brown with minimal head. Appearance is a little meh, but fortunately you dont taste beers with your eyes. Aroma is amazing rich coffee and bakers chocolate with sweet toasty caramel. Taste is medium sweet and light bittering with a bold coffee bean flavor. Really tasty stuff.

Ernesto987 (3664) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Aroma alone this brew is amazing. Tons if coffee in this beer or coffee flavors if no coffee added, can’t read Swedish. Amazing stout, it’s like if your born around the Baltic sea you can make an amazing stout.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 22, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours dark murky chocolate brown out of the bottle and setlles in almost black with a small tan head that leaves some bubbly residue around the edges. Aroma is sweet but roasty. It’s got chocolate, vanilla and especially coconut on the sweet side which is balanced with lightly roasted chocolate malts. Taste mirrors the aroma and is sweeter than I was expecting with that same coconut character coming out up front. The roasted malts form the backbone but it’s fairly subtle. The finish is dry and almost chalky with bakers chocolate and charred malts. The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth but probably a little lighter in feel than a world class impy stout. Kinda watery for the style. This is a solid impy stout but lacks the depth and heft to be great. Still, it’s tasty.

500mL from Whole Foods Bowery Place in NYC. The pour is a deep mahogany, cloudy, looking black in the glass. A dense, but small red-tinted creme head emerges with tight density like a nitro pour. Requires quite a bit of encouragement for the head to form. Not too much retention or lacing. Nose is hoppy with soft cinnamon, cocoa, vanilla cream, coffee- cappuccino. Also gains some fruitiness like tangerine and fresh strawberry. Taste- more of a porter in body with some tangy acidity. Nothing too standout for me like the 1/2 Idjit’s Bailey’s Irish Cream profile. Not really more intense than the 1/2 Idjit in body either being very drinkable, hoppy, richer, but not sweet or dense. Easy to put down like a hoppy porter with small lemon. Pretty decent but nothing overwhelming.
