4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Woodmans in the Falls; cellar aged a few months at cellar temperature. Pours chunky, inky motor oil black with a brownish head leaving a bit of spotty lacing draining slowly down the glass. Aroma has sweet molasses, dark chocolate, expresso and chocolate liquour. Taste is of dark chocolate, heavy bitter roasted malts, sweet caramel and a touch of a sour dark fruit. Some alcohol in both the taste and the warming. Very strong and a bit sticky, with a lot of body and some complexity. No noticeable mellowing oatmeal presence. Finishes fairly long, somewhat dry and mostly strong and bitter. It is certainly an "imperial" stout; complex and enjoyable.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour split at a tasting event. Pours jet black with a fading brown head. Boozy roasted malt, cookie like aroma. Super graham cracker like flavor, and super smooth. Slightly off putting aroma, but the beer tasted amazing. Thick body, and a ton of flavor. Solid beer. Loved it.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Ravenblack with brownish yellow foam, smells of campfires, liquorice, coffee and some cream. Overpowering taste with a lot of liquorice, soy, tar and coal. The alcohol is a bit obnoxious, and could be more balanced - this is the only thing I don’t like about this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle shared by my brother Black95tt. This was one hell of a russian oatmeal imperial stout. Apparently the brewer of this beer was the corporate brewer for Thirsty Dog, and had a hand in Siberian Night. And this stuff shows it!! This beer was really good. Poured as thick and black as possible. Only things darker or thicker have been dark lord or expedition. It had a nice roasted bitter aroma, and a really thick full mouth feel prolly from the oat contributions. This is a hell of a beer. Highly recommended!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Very dark, almoust black, engine oil with just a little head that’s on the top like golden-brown whipped cream.
Nose: Coffee, toffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, mocha, leather, kakao and dark syrup. Almoust a little sour nose.
Taste: Wow! This is f-ing awesome! Sweet coffee, oatmeal, brownies, boubon , vanilla, red berries and dried fruit.
Mouth: Large complex body with smooth, silky taste. Very soft carbonation.
This is almoust a perfect stout. I’m glad I bought 7 bottles (six to cellar).

On tap at Chmielarnia, Warsaw. Appearance almost black with brown, creamy head. Aroma: vanilla, some cocoa, dark chocolate. Texture very smooth. Taste a bit on a sweet side. Like a fantastic ballanced desert. Full bodied, creamy, chocolaty, again vanilla. One of the best Imperial Stouts I’ve had.
