COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after the ancient god of darkness, Leviathan Czernobog is a tribute to the hardy stouts originally brewed in England for shipment to the frigid Baltic. With notes of unsweetened chocolate, molasses, and dark fruit, this Russian Imperial Stout will withstand the darked of winters.

Pours black into a snifter. Mocha conglomerate head froths and recedes leaving spider lacing. Dark chocolate and pit fruit aromas. Thin with smoky chocolate upfront turning to caramel and pit fruit before the lasting hot espresso finish.

This poured a darker brown color with a lighter tan head. Aroma was of licorice, smoke, and dark burnt chocolate. Flavor was much the same, nicely smokey and a bit ashey, but not too offensive. Alcohol is hidden well too. Nice offering by Harpoon.

The aroma is very toasted with coffee, chocolate, and burnt malt. The appearance is dark brown with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is about right. Overall this is good.

Bottle from sam's i think. Dark brown/black with a sudsy tan head. Nice, understated nose, dry roast, bakers chocolate, light molasses, smells less like a imperial stout and more like a dry/semi-sweet stout. Flavor is similar, dark fruit, molasses, and bakers cocoa dominate. Alcohol super well hidden. Having this blind I would guess I couldn't be higher than 6% abv. A solid stout that ill give extra points for drinkability considering its high gravity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at House of 1000. Smoky with coffee, soy sauce, molasses, and chocolate. Light alcohol sweetness. Mild vanilla. Dark black opaque with thin cocoa head. Medium chewy body with medium carbonation. Starts rich and malty with chocolate and molasses, coffee, and a bit of smoke. Mild alcohol warming. Big chocolate-molasses finish with nutty sweet and bitter after.

Alright. Almost a black beer. The head.... oily tan. The aroma... roasted malt and oily alchy. Rich, chocolately and alcoholic taste. Right on par for harpoon. Its not disagreeable, which is better than I can say for most of their beers, but its not great either and being an imperial isn’t helping the cause in its own right. Maybe its the water supply or a "mediocre beer" allergy. At any rate, drink this and be moderately satisfied and completely full. The disappearing head act and no lace left behind only hurt the cause further.

2012 Bottle: Pours oil-black with a small, dark head. Aroma is sweet cherry wood smoke, raw chocolate. Flavour is very dark chocolate, thick...raisin..vanilla bean. Tingly carbonation....a whisper of smoke and pepper. Rich and smooth. Excellent.

maxwelldeux (3551) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours a thick and very black color with almost no head. Nose is just a little sweet and fruity, which I found surprising. Taste is just a tad sour, with some roasting underneath. Not my favorite of the style.

Tap thanks to beerandblues2. Pours opaque black with average, frothy tan head; decent retention and spare lacing. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit, roast malt, light woody notes and faint earthy hops. Flavor is roast malt forward with chocolate, coffee, earthy hops, dark fruit esters and light vanilla; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.
