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.

BeerandBlues2 (10065) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Tap at Max’s Taphouse. Pours opaque black with a small, creamy tan head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is dark fruity esters, dark chocolate and roast malt with earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with chocolate notes, light hops and bitterness, dark fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Czernobog is Harpoon’s new big stout. Aroma of dark chocolate and strong french roast coffee, with some distinct hopping as well. Oily black liquid, not too thick looking. Strong bittersweet flavor, like drinking a a black coffee infused with chocolate. While it does taste strong, the full ten percent is not in evidence. Thin palate feel, but don’t be fooled, this beer is dense and filling. Not in the realm of extreme imperial stouts, more like one you might find in Poland.

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.

Nice licorice and brandy flavors with hint of cocoa. Full mouthfeel slick and velvety. Not roasted or toasted but full of malt.

The aroma is molasses, bitter chocolate, roast. The appearance is deep black, tan head, quickly dissipating. The flavor is chocolate, bitter, molasses, licorice, roast. The finish is slightly sweet, roasty, licorice pine. .good overall. Competent, not outstanding stout.

cooplander (543) - Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2013
black color, aroma of roasted malt, dark fruits, earth notes, same flavors with chocolate, coffee, slight pine hops, pretty strong astringent boozy finish, lacking the rich complexity of a good imperial stout
