A nice toffee aroma with a slight hop to the nose. A little to much alcohol taste for myself but with that much I guess thats waht you get. Not my favorite Imperial Stout.

Pours a deep dark color with a nice head. Aroma is very malty and friuty with hints of raisins and roasted coffee. An excellent beer for a cold evening, with a good hoppy bitterness to the aftertaste as well

Beautiful dark reddish color with great head. Fantastisk powerful aroma. Which so much alcohol it is a very strong tasting beer. Itís very hoppy and bitter burnt. Far too strong!

One of the great ones. Dark robust flavor. One that will mess you up on a empty stomach. Thatís good stuff for me. Aroma doesnít smell anything of fruit, but more to a maple walnut to me.

Deep dark brown pour with tall brown head. Raisin, fig, fruit aroma. Roasted malty flavor, light fruit, and a creamy, slightly bitter aftertaste. Impressive.......most impressive.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle: Given this beers rep. I was expecting a great deal. I was slightly disappointed. The pour was as expected, dark bleak black with a small thin head that quickly escapes. A nice resinous aroma with the darker fruits and malts all alone. But then the boom of hops and bitter comes crashing through in the taste. My hopes were let down in the lack of balance in the hop character. Itís not totally off the mark but was somewhat knagging especially in the finish. A good imperial stout but not a bullseye.

Pours black with a smallish tan head.Aroma is a delightful blend of malt and raisin. Flavors are roasted malt with a definte hops presence. The alcohol is completely hidden by the other flavors. Finish is bitter, but not unpleasant. A very good Imperial, and a relative bargain.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Very dark, almost chocolatey brown in appearance. This Russian Imperial stout does the genre proud by being stong, smooth & hoppy. The hop after-taste is strong, but not un-pleasantly so, & the overall flavor is very dark & almost sweet.
Fast becoming a favorite at $6.99/4-pack.

Opaque black color with a huge tan head. Very creamy, tastes of coffee and chicory. A little more bitter than I would have expected, but a very fine beer.
