Can purchased at Total Wine in Dallas. Super nice beer. Pours black with prunes and dark fruit on the nose. Slight roast. Really nice. And great that it is in a can. Great beer.

pours thick black like motor oil. smells of sweet spices and light cedar wood, cocoa, candy sugar and booze a much more delicate aroma than expected. tastes roasted malt, cocoa, warm booze, light pine/wood. Palate is viscous and gorgeous. A great Imp Stout.

12oz can, popping up at the already impressive BA import counter of Derer’s, BKL ’15 - FR. Courtesy of oldmanriver, cheers. Thicker creamy caramel pour. Mars bar candy, more refined roast, molasses and cognac in the aroma goes into deeply saturated roast malt textures, going almost into a savoury register of caramel and chocolate, aided by a nice supporting bitterness. Despite massive caramels cigar-dry, well-rounded and fulfilling like a cocoa-coated cigarillo dunked in brandy...

The best Russian Imperial Stout I have ever had. Palate- A heavy brew with moderate carbonation, has a creamy texture and a good alcohol feel after the swallow. Overall- World class.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2015 Creamy smooth and rich. Extremely pleasant mouth feel. Wonderful balance of flavors. 98 ibus and 10.5 % abv? Wouldn’t have guessed it. The finish leaves my mouth feeling dry and brings a somewhat harsh bitterness that lingers. Was loving this beer until the finish. Still solid but there are Imperials out there for this price or less i enjoy more.

Inky black pour with a dark brown head. Roasted malt aroma. Thick mouth feel. Coffee and some licorice flavors. Roasted flavor lingers on the palate with a boozy finish. Very good!

Damn good dark stout. 98 IBUs of bitterness, but so well balanced that I’d never have known. Smooth, sweet, dark malts, never straying too heavily into chocolate or coffee territory, just hitting that sweet, mollassesy, middle of the road. Yum.
Pricey, but if I’m looking for a premium choice, this is not at all a bad one!

Can. There was a road in my home city that was just the smoothest stretch for skating along. It was usually on my route home after a good session. The calm night air, the minimal resistance between wheels and asphalt. Striking. This is more or less that memory in liquid.

This is a great beer! Pours black with brownish head! Smells malts and chocolate. Taste caramel, chocolate, malts with balanced bitterness. It's a very complex taste. You can feel high alcohol content but that is well balanced with creamy malts! Overall it's a very nice dark beer! Simply wow! Favorite+
