COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American example of an English style of beer made for the Russian Royals. This ale deep black in color, finally released after being aged for 16 months. Made using large amounts of malt and roasted barley yields the most robust beer we make. Thick coffee like flavor and aroma. This beer is well hopped and finishes bitter. This is a real treat

Verre de dégustation, provenant d’une bouteille de 12 oz, au Mondial de la Bière 2007 (Montréal, QC). Arôme: Forte odeur de chocolat riche avec une pointe de caramel et de café. Apparence: La couleur est noire opaque. Présence d’un mince col beige mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de chocolat, de caramel, de café et de petits fruits foncés. Longue durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est plein avec une texture crémeuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Chocolat très présent en arrière goût. (Rating #1067)

*Drank at le Mondial 07*Opaque black, oily poor with no head. Aromas of dark chocolate, prunes, coffee, soya, black cherries and a hint of vanilla and port. WoW! This is an impy? ... Very creamy, oily mouthfeel.... Good sweetness and somewhat a little salty? Added flavors of molasses, hint of hickory, alcohol, maple syrup, dark chocolate, black cherries and prunes.

Ok, #1, I LOVE aged stouts. I"m assuming this was a bourbon barrel, cause this had huge vanilla notes, and i’m a sucker for that. Super thick, and jet black. Pours like old motor oil. Nose is vanilla, fudge, chocolate, coffee, smoke. flavour is big on the vanilla again, and lots of chocolate and smoke. mouthfeel i find it what puts this apart from the others. This beer is super thick, and oil, and creamy, i love it! It’s like a meal. my new favorite stout!

Eructoblaster (3013) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2007
Bottle at Mondial de la Bière (Montréal). Pours a black opaque body with a thin brown head. Aroma and taste are both awesome. It is rich, complex, robust. The beer carries various notes of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, fruits and yeast. No hints of alcohol at all. It ends with a long and warming finish. This is an amazing beer!

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2007
My Bottom Line:
An ocean of soy sauce and floating residual sugars frighteningly recalls SA Triple Bock. A viscous and cloying Imperial Stout whose complex flavors of coffee, molasses, vanilla and roastiness just don’t have room to shine.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-This headless monster did sport a dauntingly opaque black dress.
-The mouthfeel is as thick as it gets, and this just doesn’t agree with the saltiness for my palate.
-Alcohol burns in the back, and the overwhelming sugars are on the verge of triggering my gag reflex.
-I am against the grain here, but this overly sweet sumo sipper just doesn’t work for me at all.

Bottle at the Mondial de la Bière.

Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2007
Sampled at Mondiale 2007. Review #2200. A very good RIS, I do not know why it is labelled American. Dark brown with a macha crown. Chocolate and alcohol nose. Medium plus mouthfeel. A lot of sweetish chocolate. Significant carbonation.

Quevillon (2501) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2007
Bu au Mondial 07. Noir simple avec très peu de collet. Arome de café chocolaté fort et sucré. Goût de malte choco-café sucré et un peu alcoolisé.

Very light aroma with a tinge of chocolate. Black with no head--very oily looking. Medium palate for an impy. Flavors are extremely sweet! Lots of bitter chocolate and brown sugar and definitely alcohol. Tangy aftertaste detracts. I just felt this one was way too sweet for my tastebuds.
