Sampled at the RBSG 07 Grand Tasting. Dark dark opaque brown body with no head. Strong vanilla to the point it reminded me of an oak aged liquor. Smooth body with coffee and chocolate flavors dominant.

Bottle from RBSG Grand Tasting. The head totally is gone after the initial pour. Strong intense licorice, vanilla, and caramel aromas greet the nose. Very smooth flavor, and the ingredients just all seem to work in harmony with each other. This is a top notch brew!

Thanks to the Ohio crew for picking this brew up!

Rich, dark and filled with flavor. Thick, oily black pour with deep tan head that diminishes faster than you would think. Dark roasted malts dominate the nose eliciting aromas of expresso and chocolate. There’s a sweet side in the nose, as well, with hints of plum. The flavor is softly sweetened, a sweetness that turns bitter by the end of the swallow. The finish stays bitter and last moderately long revealing notes of licorice. Full body. Moderate carbonation. While this beer makes a great first impression, it grew a little tedious by the end of the glass. Still, a nicely crafted Russian imperial stout.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2007
Bottle. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma is roasted malt, rye bread, vanilla, chocolate and oat, the taste is much the same with some alcohol present. Medium to full body with a long plesant finish. Vell balanced.

22 oz bomber thanks to zinnamon. Poured thick, I mean this could have been oil thick, and dark, I mean I thought this was oil dark, with a small medium brown head (and not light brown but medium brown). Aroma had some alcohol coming through with notes of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and some licorice. Flavor was similiar but dropped off from the aroma slightly. The palate on this was very full, what else would it be with the thickness from the pour, and only a mild alcohol prescence with a slight touch of carbonation. This may have been the thickest fullest beer I have ever had because I have never seen a beer leave a lacing, of the beer itself not from the head, like this one did. Looked like oil was poured into my snifter and I feared for my carpet in case I became sloppy.

This ended up being really, really drinkable. Super dark black colour with a brown head that started out big and faded away quickly. Not a ton in the aroma on this one, some bakers chocolate and dry roast. Good coating mouthfeel with a soft barely perceptable carbonation. Chocolate and fig in the flavour, big roasted malt flavour as well. Slightly dry with just a bit of hops at the end.

22 oz bottle. Poured an opaque black color. Head was light brown. Aroma was of chocolate and alcohol. Oily, thick mouth feel. Tasted of malty molasses, chocolate, fig, raisin, and alcohol. Yum.
