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.

12oz bottle shared by blankboy. black and oily, smallish light brown creamy head. Somewhat sweet deep roast aroma, alcohol, a bit of table cream, mint and herbal bitterness. Taste follows, a touch hot, nicely balanced though. Slick, low carbonation, quick oily alcoholic finish. Good.

I continue to be impressed with the beers in the Leviathan Series... and this is no exception. Dark and thick with plenty of dark roasted malts and a medium amount of hops... good one.

Holtguy (121) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Pours black with tan head, a little bit of light shines through the edges. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee - very typical of an RIS. Flavor is pretty smooth considering the abv. Flavor is dark chocolate, maybe a bit of coffee. Pretty tasty and drinkable. Not too heavy, and slightly thin mouthfeel. Overall very good, but thinner than I expected.

warhawk91 (302) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - JUL 24, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Jet black with a beautiful tab head and minimal lacing, thick like motor oil. Smell is roasted malts, molasses, baker’s chocolate, alcohol and coffee. Taste is incredibly balanced, chocolate, roastiness, a touch of hop bitterness and a bit if alcohol burn. Really good imperial stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My bottle [12oz] shared with HogTownHarry. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size semi-lasting frothy beige head. Nice aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, light hops and a bit of alcohol. Flavour of roasted malt, leafy hops, some lactic notes and chocolate. Medium bodied. Really good, I quite liked it.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4943) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 Beers this beer poured a black color with a medium sized foamy brown head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was cocoa, coffee, roasty malts and vanilla. The flavor was roasty and toasty with moderate coffee, cocoa and vanilla elements. Long finish of toasty malts, coffee, cocoa and vanilla. Turns a bit dry and woody at the very end. Thick and creamy body. Very nice.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2013
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.
