obsequim (3) - - MAR 28, 2014 does not count
Coffee, cream and vanilla notes add to a slightly alcoholic stout aroma. Black color with a thick head that has large partly bubbles. Unexpectedly fresh and effervescent. Roasty stout taste with alcohol and oaky vanilla - hop bitterness clearly there and well balanced. Overall great beer. Drinks exceptionally easy for a 12% beer

Very strong oaky aroma with espresso undertones. Little lighter on the taste, doesn't quite match the aroma. Slight bitterness and washes down smoothly. Nothing much left on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

FatPhil (9748) - 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.
