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.

12 oz. bottle that I purchased @ Nikkiís Liquors, Providence, R.I. for $2.99. Vintage is 2012. Quickly dissipating tan head that died to nothing. Aroma is roasted malts, dark fruit and light vanilla. Tastes of decent amounts of roasted chocolate malts producing notes of coffee and raisins. Secondary flavors of light smokiness or burnt wood and light vanilla. Texture is on the oily side with a slick texture. ABV is masked after itís cellared a bit like this bottle. For the price I paid for a bottle or what you will find for a 4 pack; it really is worth a try. Not going to blow your mind with flavor for the style, yet it still is a well-made imperial stout.

Cybercat (3579) - Georgia, USA - APR 5, 2013
Comes out of the tap a rich, dark coffee brown with a fine-bubbled tan head that leaves generous lacing. Hearty aroma has strong chocolate, caramel and roast malt notes plus hints of caramel and fruit. Robust flavor has a core of roast malt and coffee, chocolate, earthy, woody hop and caramel notes of varying strength. Each sip seems just a little different. It is slightly sweet, but not too much. Texture seems just a teensy thin for an Imperial Stout, but otherwise quite firm and fizzy. Darkness visible, and very tasty!

AdamJackson (2968) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 26, 2012
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

jbruner (2569) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JAN 23, 2015
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.

johnnnniee (2519) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 30, 2013
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.
