Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, - SEP 27, 2011
On draught at the Boreft Beer Festival, 2011. A dark brown ale with a brown head. A big, smoky, peaty, iodine nose. Similar smoky flavour with roasted malt, burnt toast and caramel. Great!

omhper (21414) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2015
Bottled. Near black, beige head. Sugar, peat, coffee and licorice up front. Very sweet with full body and rounded, syrupy mouthfeel. Sugar and peat, molasses and syrup. Warming finish. Heavy and filled with sugar.

Sublirony (41) - SINGAPORE - JUN 12, 2015
Tap, Arendsnest. Pours very black, quite opaque. Nice head, great lacing. Lively rich noise: fruity, pearly, molasses. More molasses on the palate. Complex in the mouth. Finishes very dry. A delicious, Russian imperial stout, more restrained (elegant) and less voluptuous than some. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great beer. Pours pitch black with a small beige head. Wonderful, complex aromas of peat, whiskey, smoke. Same taste, creamy, slightly sweet, no hard edges. Love this.

soolash (197) - POLAND - DEC 22, 2014
Butelka 0,33 l. Aromat: Piana wzorowa: gęsta, zbita, bardzo drobna i trwała. Na dodatek świetnie oblepia ścianki szkła. Piwo jest czarne i nieprzejrzyste. Wygląd zasługuje na maksymalną ilość punktów. Piękne! W smaku słodkawe. Czuć słody palone i melanoidynę. Finisz cierpki i lekko czekoladowy, cierpki. 11% alkoholu pięknie ukryte w gorzkiej czekoladzie z nutami kawowymi. Odczucie w ustach bardzo treściwe. Piwo ma pełne ciało i aksamitną fakturę. Niskie nasycenie sprzyja chęci powolnego sączenia i zagłębiania się w bukiet smakowy.

jinroh (802) - ESTONIA - MAR 27, 2014
Pours pitch black, nice head. This brew is truly full of peat smoke. Alcohol sticks it to your nose like whiskey. Taste is incredibly peaty as well, peat smoke from the beginning to the end. Taste lingers for long. Very strong taste, actually quite sweet body, has also decent amount of hops and herbs. Really massive über-drink.

Impressive stout, lot’s of coffee and chocolate flavors. Pours up with a brown medium head. Looks wonderful...

Beerhunter111 (11059) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein tiefschwarzes Bier mit schöner bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch rauchig, holzig, stark röstmalzig, Kaffee, alkoholisch. Geschmack stark röstmalzig, schwarzer Kaffee, holzig, leicht säuerlich.

ansalon (2034) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2013
Pours pitch black with a medium foam head. Aroma is tar, peat, smoke, dark bitter chocolate, muscovado sugar, honey, charred wood. Taste is peat, honey, dark red fruit, honey, muscovado sugar, vanilla. Really quite good. A bit too peaty on the nose, but very well balanced!

bjornkri (17) - Ledeberg, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2013
Black, beige head, good lacing. Smells like whiskey, touch of smoke, coffee. Mouthfeel is great, full. A bit of smoke, licorice, coffee, lovely flavor. Bitterness in the aftertaste, flavors stay for a while, bitterness much longer.

knotthead (14) - Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2013
Wonderful smoky aroma, coffee-like and slightly sludgy appearance, not too dark colour. Great flavour with a long dark smoky aftertaste. Not offensively smoky, though. Really nice stout.
