amazing stuff...shared with silphium...black body with medium ochre head..aroma is very baltic-porter like with massive hints of nuts and marshmallow, vanilla bean, coffee, oats and chocolate..flavor is huge in chocolate, is very dry and roasted, and is complemented by grassy/earth tone hops...enveloping palate complements this style perfectly...simply one of the best out there

Bottle (Thanks boboski!!!) I was definitely looking forward to this one and I was not dissapointed! Pours a jet black color with a 2+ finger dark tan head. Aroma is heavy with roasted malts, coffee & dark chocolate. This tastes ohhhh sooo good! Lots of roasted malty goodness, heavy does of coffee and bitter chocolate. All what a stout should be! My wife noted that it tastes like a shot of espresso was dropped into the glass!! Very thick and wonderfully creamy. Very smooth. I need MORE!!

Very nice. Coffee and roasted malt aroma, including oatmeal. A very thick, black beer with light carbonation. Flavor is more coffee but it is not overdone. Considerable hops, not like Darkness, but lots of hops anyway. Thick and full palate. I thought the abv was higher.

22oz - Aroma of dark roasted malts, oatmeal, dark chocolate and vanilla. Pours black with a small brown head and good lacing. Flavor is very chocolatey with a big handful of roasted oats and dark malts in every swallow. Vanilla and a touch of coffee in the finish. Alcohol shows up here, but is not overpowering or long lasting. Palate is smooth and creamy. Dare I say a little thin for how bold this brew is? A very tasty RIS and a standout in the land of plenty.

Rated 3/9/07: Oh such a lovely stout, Siberian Night rolled in a hearty dose of oats, this is real nice. Mildly sweet aroma of rich roasted malt with heavy doses of coffee and bakers chocolate, superb aroma all around very aromatic. Midnight black pour with a two finger brown head that slowly works down to a fine film, moderate lacing it’s nice to swirl the beer around in the glass. Powerful flavor, it hits on all cylinders. Rich roasted malt, bitter chocolate malt, coffee, black licorice, and a nice rum-like alcohol punch. Smoothness from the oats, it’s a really well rounded impy. Thick and creamy, the finish is much easier than it should be. Remarkable in all categories, this is an amazing drink. Biggest downside is that I can get a sixer of many other great Impy’s for only a buck or two more than the cost of this bomber.

Many thanks to Crizay for hooking me up with this gem. Pours like motor oil with a medium head. aroma is dry oatmeal with a little coffee. The taste... Mmmm... somehow it seems to manage a sweet roasted malt quality. Vanilla and a little oak. Slightly bitter finish. Oh that’s good stuff.

Nose-burnt coffee, alcohol, char. Body-opaque with a medium beige ring of bubbles. Taste-soured coffee, ice coffee, oatmelaish, unsweet coffee and unsweet malts dominate. Lactic, sour.

22oz bomber from west lakeview. A black opaque body with med long lasting brown/tan head. Aroma of sweet roasted malt, alc, boubon, coffee, in-freakin-tense. Very full body, oatmeal added a lot of creaminess. Flavor is smoky roasted malt, coffee, alc, choclate, vanilla, really delicous. I’m glad that we are starting to get this beer distributed out here in Illinois.
