4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
16.9 oz bottle into my snifter. Aggressive pour produces an opaque black brew with a thick 4 finger dark brown head that dissipated quickly. Beautiful aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, toffee, dark dried fruits and crisp piney hops. Great flavors of dark cocoa, roasted malts, dried raisins and coffee. A little molasses and bitter hops in the finish. Nice moderately thick mouthfeel. Average carbonation, a delightly drinkable and delicious imperial stout. My first brew from Nogne O and it won’t very lasts would love to try it barrel aged

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tapped in craft republic/moscow(tried bottled many times, but like keg version more).
Deep bromw to black with creamy chocolate foam. Chocolate sweet aroma, amybe some caramel aswell. Starting from rounded full body on mouth, really cool for this just 9%/23P example of imperial stout! Sweet taste of high-cocoa chocolate, bit nutty bit sweet milk caramel, some bitterness of roasty malt/bread with neutral hop make this beer on of most balanced examples ive tried. Long enough aftertaste with just little bit more bitternes then you can feel when drinking it.

leading to a bitter-sweet dark-fruity lasting finish. Full bodied, soft carbonation. Overall solid - the russian tsar is not.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,5l bottle. Wonderfully black with heavy caramel head. Deep aroma of licorice. Unfortunately this is too sour and bitter for my taste. Really interesting, but too heavy. I suspect high gravity...
