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 dark black with a light brown head. Some creaminess, a nice flavor. A solid stout, felt a little thinner than some of the better imperial.

22 ounce bottle, 2014 edition. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with maybe an inch tan head that stuck around a while. There’s also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like dark fruit, molasses, roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate and some coffee. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but with some milk chocolate, vanilla, and a bit of licorice noticeable. I think the strongest flavors are the molasses and dark fruity ones at first, with the chocolate kicking in more after a while. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick and creamy with moderate carbonation. I think it’s a good overall imperial stout. At $5.99 a bomber, it’s definitely worth picking up at least once!

On tap at MacGregor’s 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.

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.

Pours a dark black with brown head. Has a nice chocolate, coffee, and dark alcohol aroma. Taste is strong with chocolate, coffee, and malts, with a lingering dark alcohol aftertaste. Not overpowering like many Russian imperials. More mild.
