Bottle at home, 8th February 14. 666 rating, the number of the Angry Beast! This is a nice impy, slightly thin on the mouth feel, aroma is unusual, taste is sweet, some bitterness and slightly sour. I liked it and easy drinking for the ABV

Moscicki (129) - Tarnow, POLAND - JAN 26, 2014
Very good Russian Imperial Stout. Inky dark with pleasant frothy head. In aroma mainly roasted barley and alcohol (spirit notes). The second sniff gives you coffee, chocolate and a touch of prunes. Body is moderate dry/sweet with very oily texture supported with carbonation at a proper level. It warms you up quickly with powerful dose of well masked alcohol. The aftertaste is slightly sour and bitter in a second place. It’s very drinkable and it would be a great companion to a dessert.

Bottle. Pours Black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and liquorice. Flavour has coffee, chocolate and buckets of roast malt. Warming booze feel. Totally delicious

FatPhil (9346) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 5, 2013
(330 bottle from Csak a Jó Sör, Budapest)
Ridiculously dark with a brief chocolate head. (4+)
Aroma full of coffee and dark chocolate. A very nice aroma that also has some sharp red(?) berry in it.
Very roasted and, unfortunately, ashy in the mouth. Similar finish, with mostly coffee beans. Some hopping comes through.
Good level of carbonation.
A little alcohol in the ’alcohol test’, but otherwise it’s only a little heady. Covers 12% by being big rather than sweet.
This is a well-crafted beast but could do with more nuances and less ash. Gets more velvety.
Unusually, Phil did not share this.
The 3.4 might be an over-rate.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 4, 2013
On tap at Főzdefeszt 2012 autumn. Dark brown, almost black colored beer with little, brown head. Alcoholly, creamy, hoppy aroma. Roasted malt flavour but not sour. Medim body comared to the amount of alcohol. Medium carbonation (too much a little bit) and creamy texture. Hoppy finish. Good Imperial Stout, esspecially among the Hungarian ones, but it doesn’t compete with the American big brothers. It should have more chocolte, and more intensive malt flavours.

Henti (243) - Dunaszekcső, HUNGARY - AUG 27, 2013
A very nice one from Hungary, thumbs up for this. Very pleasing dark appearance, nice aroma of roasted coffee and malt, as well as a little bit of alcohol. Smooth, velvety dark taste, which matches the aroma. Keep it up.
