20100326 10.14 fl oz?? bottled shared with TommyTilt. Usual black imperial stout with thick, sturdy tan head of tight foam that laces spottily. Aromas are grill char, burnt toast, licorice, dark roast coffee, and dark cocoa with some mild vinyl, resinous pine. Medium full body for the style, fairly quick drying finish, sweet middle but fresh hoppy bitterness to end. Nothing special, but an alright hoppy, drinkable IS.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours black with a light tan head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, toffee, burnt malts. Very nice nose. Flavours of dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, demerara sugar, caramel, smoke. Dry, vinous mouthfeel. Finishes dry, malty with a warming alcohol burn. Excellent, just how an imperial Russian stout should be.

Countbeer (4035) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2010 Bottle: Good thick/closed 1 finger beige dark head that disappears slowly. Smell is awesome, deep and dark, lot of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and some hops. Taste is very good, full and dark with a wide spread mix of roasted ingredients. Chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, oak, dark fruits and little spicy. Bitter aftertaste with roasted aroma’s and coffee that slightly turns to a bittersweet lasting taste. They did a good job on the alcohol, not easy to taste that! A very nice balanced black body with low carbonation. Perfect!

puzzl (3237) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2010
Tap at the Beer Table. A surprise hit. Great lacing on the pour, very black. Lovely cigar smoke, roast, coffee aroma, complimented by fresh strawberry. Very balanced. Perfect body, not too thick. Prickly, roasty body, notes of bubblegum and mild coffee. Mostly dry. Just a fantastically balanced, gentle, traditional imperial stout. We don’t see enough like this made in the States.

Bottled@Monks Café Sveavägen, Stockholm. Quite much pitch black colour with not too much head. Aroma is dark berries, roasted malts, some mild rubbery notes as well. Flavour is roasted malts, liquorice and some alcohol. Also some slight yeastyness and spices. Also coffee comes in rather strongly when it warms up.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 16, 2010
Bottle. Pours a black body with no head and probably due to a broken bottle neck. Dry chocolate malt, roasted malt, some light chocolate and chewy wooden dry roasted character. A light licorice and a roasted body with a modest warming to finish. Good.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Tap at Max’s. Pours a very nice deep dark near pitch black with a nice fluffy dark tan head. Aroma is nicely roasted malts, light burnt hints, good full fresh chocolate malt light coffee, some anise and tobacco- clean. Flavor is lightly fruity upfront, then good full roasted barley, chocolate malt, and medium sweetness, some drying earth and leather, light hops, and very clean and not too sweet in the finish. Very well made.
