Grosse Stout Russe Impériale avec tout ce que l’on demande au genre : rondeur, douceur, bière crémeuse, savoureuse, maltée chocolat et caramel, bien houblonnée pour compenser le côté liquoreux inhérent au genre.C’est quasi parfait mais la perfection n’est pas de ce monde.

Smells quite malty. In taste, this beer is strong in terms of coffee and chocolate. A mocha coloured head. Delicious.

aleigator (290) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2014
Pours an oily mahogany color with a small head, leaving back only a thin lacing at the edges. Nose is full of bitter chocolate with coffee and burned caramel, along with a sweet, well integrated alcohol note. The taste is centered around dark chocolate, which is earthy at first, and then turns sweeter immediately, due to a slick coffee bitterness with strong mousse-au-chocolate and molasse impact. This brew is incredibly creamy and smooth, which comes along with a warm alcoholic peak, wrapped up in sweeter cocoa. Has an intriguing complexity, between sweet and bitter flavors, between creamy chocolate and earthy, bitter coffee. Finishes bitter, while cream still remains noteable.

ajnepple (2564) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2014
330 ml bottle purchased at Crooked Stave in The Source and drank at home. Black appearance with a small, thin, lingering brown head and minimal lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, molasses, dark fruits, light earthy notes and a touch of wine. Similar flavor, rich, malty and complex with moderate sweetness, light bitterness and a vinous finish. Full bodied, smooth and creamy on the palate with soft carbonation. Overall, this beer makes for a nice sipper and the alcohol is hidden quite well.

Dégustation chez Charles. Noire, mousse beige. Arôme de grains. En bouche, notes de torréfaction, un peu de chocolat noir et réglisse noire (anis). Notes d’alcool. Légèrement madérisée.

BOTTLE 33 CL. Look: pitch black, smallish espresso head. Aroma: sweet strawberry marmalade, light roasted not the meld into the sweetness, sweet chocolate, cherry liquor, some alcohol. Taste: it is sweet, marmalade, roast is in the back, no alcohol perse, but you can feel the spice, Moderate bitterness which is half roasted espresso and half hops. The body is a nice balance between drinkability and richness. Excellent!

Bottle at home. Pours dark with beautiful and very persistent brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Taste of coffee and chocolate, medium roasted. Good, but i would expect more body with 11% abv.
