4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, february 13th 2016. Black body, dark brown head. Great looking! Rich roasted aroma with dark chocolate and vanilla, taste is robust bitter coffee with plums and licorice, a little milky sweetness joins towards the finish, resulting in a great Russian I could enjoy all night. Pretty good stuff!

A surprisingly subdued aroma of chocolate and coffee, pours an ebony color with a lasting tan well laced head. Taste of plums, sherry and a hint of coffee. A lighter body with a fruity alcohol finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black body with a tiny, short-lived head that disparages completely, save for a flimsy ring of bubbles along the walls of the glass. Sweet, malty and strong aroma of chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, dark roasted malt, chocolate, dark caramel and chocolate. Some sweet generic and slightly overripe fruits in the back. Strong malty flavour of chocolate initially, which transforms into coffee in the long-lasting finish. Also too much alcohol, and hints of dark berries. Moderate sweet and moderate bitter taste. Full body, creamy texture and soft carbonation, but the drinkability, or rather, the sip-ability is greatly reduces due to the sharp alcohol. All in all a lovely imperial stout, though.
[35.5 cl bottle, batch 472, enjoyed 10 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Ullevål, Oslo]

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitch black colored, small non lasting tan head. Aroma is malty, chocolate creamy spread, burnt sugar, some coffee and roasted malt. Taste is medium+ sweet burnt sugar, chocolate, nuts, Nutella, roasted malt, bit ashy, medium roasty bitterness, dry finish, lasting aftertaste, well hidden alcohol. Strangely enough, I don’t get much dark fruit. Full bodied, soft carbonation, creamy. Easygoing for the style.

En god Impstout, men ikke helt der oppe slik at den får toppscore hos meg. Den burde ha litt mer humlebitterhet, og kanskje litt mer brentsmak.

On tap @Buskers Pub (Rome). Pours dark brown with a cappuccino head. Aroma of dark chocolate, milk, coffee, alcohol. Flavour is medium sweet, a bit unbalanced, with a light bitter end. Medium to full body, light carbonation. So so...

Drinkable. Less bitter than others I’ve had of the style, but it lacks anything to make it stand out.
