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.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2011
500ml bottle courtesy of secret santa 2011. thanks! pours a deep, dark brown that sits black in the glass and is topped by a thin, khaki head that leaves dripping rings of lace on the glass. aroma is oustanding with heavy, rich, roasted malts, black coffee, and fresh-baked chocolate cake with subtle hints of smoke, anise, and black cherries emerging as it warms. flavor is delicious as well with a heavy dose roasted malts, charred grains, and spent coffee grains up front backed by bittersweet licorice, cacao chocolate, and sweet raisins with subtle notes of butterscotch and earth on the finish. palate is smooth and rich with light carbonation, a touch of boozy warmth, and finishes dry and roasty. overall, a great imperial stout.

emacgee (4367) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Pours a sharp burnt wood black with one finger of creamy dark tan head. Nose is rich with lots of acidic coffee roast and unsweetened chocolate, dark fruit skins, light alcohol, and a slight burnt grain character. Rich chocolate and acidic dark fruits and some charred grain. Slight woody character. Warming alcohol and full body with a coating mouthfeel and slightly acidic palate.

Ughsmash (7354) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Bottled. Poured deep brown with a sticky medium tan head. The aroma picked up sweeter milk chocolate notes and smoked malts, with lesser vanilla bean and black patent.. nothing crazy, but well-presented. The flavor found sweet chocolates, molasses, and honey at the core.. odd, bright, roasted soapy accents.. grainy on the edges with ashy roast and cocoa bitterness.. oaky notes, lots of residual roast, and moderate warmth on the finish. Medium-bodied, but filling on the palate.. lots of good stuff in there, but unfortunately the odd character is what really stuck on the finish.. still a solid brew.

Travlr (15635) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 15, 2011
Bottle. Pours almost black, small brown head that settles quickly to an edge. Aroma of dark milk chocolate, vanilla, light spice. Taste is smooth and silky, dark roasted coffee with a touch of schnapps. Very nice.

_angst_ (3451) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2011
Sample @ Porterfestivalen in Gothenburg on November 19. Pours brownish black with a small chocolate brown head. Smell is very complex and sweet with roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla and some alcohol. Taste is sweet and fullbodied with chocolate, vanilla, raisins, port wine and a warming alcohol sensation. Finish is slightly sweet with chocolate and coffee and lasts for quite some time.

mcberko (9216) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 17, 2011
500mL bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours black with a small light brown head. Aroma of wood, darkly roasted malts and some cappuccino. The roasted / wood qualities are most pronounced on the nose. Flavour follows and is massively roasted with roasted malt, lots of wood and a bit of burnt espresso. Palate is rich and rough. Delicious.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2011
500ml bottle, best by July 2013. Pours a dark, translucent mahogany color with a small, bubbly, frothy head of khaki foam. The center of the head quickly fades to a swirly film, as the bubbles push out to the edge and stay there. Thin, feathery snakes and broken chiffon sheets of lace mark the glass nicely. Though there is predictably a good amount of sweetness to the nose, there is also a decent roast offering, as notes of coffee, dark roasted cacao, and toasted biscuit all come through. Back to the sweetness, it comes in the form of licorice, melted dark chocolate, and mocha. Anise lends sharp spice. Flavors largely follow suit, sweet and chocolaty for the most part, loaded with black licorice and anise, The burnt sugars are definitely heavy, and they comprise some of the perceived roast. The coffee notes seem day-old and slightly stale. There’s a lingering, sharp, slightly acidic old coffee note that goes long in the aftertaste. The palate is shy of full bodied, but still rather dense and hefty. It’s sugary, laborious, and cloying, and the mouth remains sticky well after the swallow. Eh....another imperial stout that I can’t really get down with these days.
