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.

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.

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 isnít 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.

Black like licorice. Minimal coffee colored head. Mollasses and brown sugar. Maple wood Taste is bitter sweet. Like a snickers bar. Nutty and chocolate with some caramel. Finish is brow sugar and vanilla. High body low carbonation. Very dry at the finish This is a very weak stout. A sweeter porter? Itís pretty weak and not amazing. Worth a try though

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.

Pours an opaque brownish black from the bottle with thin ring of tan brown head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of deep roast and earthy soy. Taste is way better, dark chocolate over roast and sweet malt. Thick sweetness, nice bitter middle, thick with light carbonation.

Pours a solid dark brown/black with a good sized creamy tan head that slowly dissipates to a cap on top. The aroma is filled with dark dried fruit and caramel with hints of molasses, chocolate, and coffee. Light earthy hop aroma tries to provide some balance but succumbs to the depths of the malt. The flavor is a bit of a departure from the aroma. Chocolate and coffee milk flavors with with a bit of caramel and molasses. Light earthy hop and a touch of ethanol in a fairly dry finish. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet silky mouthfeel. This is a decent stout that I can get behind. Its not overly complex, and a bit dry in the finish for my liking, but I enjoyed it just the same.

On tap at MacGregorís with Joe and Dan H. Pours a deep black body with small head and light chocolate brown lacing. Aroma is espresso and roast. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of sweet chocolate malts, light roast. Very straight forward stout, very balanced and drinkable.

Sample glass at Two Brothers Tavern, Middlebury, VT. This was poured into one of those pilsener looking sample glasses (yes, so take with grain of salt to an extent), hereís the rest. The appearance was a black color with a thin glaze of a cap of a tan head. Quickly dissipated, no lacing. The smell had a good amount of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, black licorice, roasty coffee beans, and a delicate amount of dark fruits. The taste was mainly sweet through the previously mentioned flavors. Roasty tones make a decent effort and slide through the dark fruits to blend into the aftertaste, decent. Semi-sticky fruity to licorice finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Weird that a 10%-er has a slightly crushable feel to it and its on tap, hmm...leaves me wondering. Overall, well, its not a bad RIS, just comes across a bit lighter than expected. Good aroma and flavor, could come back to it for that.
