Bottle thanks to my brother. A pitch black body is topped with a light orange brown head. Lots of molasses and dark chocolate. There is also some prune. The taste is cola ans tobacco. Prunes and smoke in the backend. An ashy finish with hints of anise. Rough with the booze burn.

Noire, fin col de mousse chocolat. Nez de malts grillés, chocolat, pruneaux, noisettes, alcool. Bouche sur le chocolat, cerise griotte à l’eau de vie, alcool. Forte amertume, légère acidité, alcool important, corps liquoreux. Bonne imperial stout mais manque de complexité, à voir dans ses versions élevées en fût !

Vera nice Russian Imperial Stout. Bela espuma que segue a cor da cerveja. No nariz o álcool aparece um pouco, mas não atrapalha tanto. No sabor é muito boa, mas com leve preponderância do álcool. Manda mto com um brownie.

BobyFischer (65) - FRANCE - NOV 6, 2014
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 (265) - 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.

0.33l bottle. Black body, light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and floral hops. Taste of coffee, chocolate, floral hops and cream. Full bodied beer with creamy texture. Very nice.

ajnepple (2357) - 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.
