A perfect dry stout with deep hoppy flavour. I was expecting a sweeter beer, but was happily suprised to find out there are strong stouts that dont taste like syrup.

Really well balanced, complex and enjoyable imperial stout! The best Finnish beer this far for sure and superb beer internationally too.

ladnewton (1461) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2009
Draught at Plevna, Tampere, Finland on 9th August 2008. Black as printing ink and sports a handsome pale brown head. One of the finest stouts I have drunk in recent years. Full-bodied, very strong hoppiness for a stout as well as delectable roasted malt and smokiness. Very bitter chocolate notes too. Totally exquisite and recommended.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2010 Draught at Olutravintola Pikkulintu, Helsinki, Finland. One of the finest Imperial Stouts Ive ever tasted, with a full body and a ton of hops, roasted malt and smoke in its taste. Hints of bitterness, chocolate and liquourice as well.

I had a fun night with the dear Siperian Stout. Extremely strong chocolate flavour and smooth after taste. I would say that the smoothnes was something between Speedway and Yeti stout (smoothest stuff around:) Hint of caramel and nice roasted taste (the next day). I have to rank this as the best Finnish beer I have ever tasted (there with the yeti stout). Big up for plevna.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2008 Gorgeous thick creamy beige head, cruel - almost pitch black color. Pleasant, sweet aroma with a touch of herbs, chocolate and a bit of tobacco. Powerful, quite sweet flavor brings a load of hops and fruits. Nice low carbonated palate. Feisty and originaI flavor. I wouldve liked to see more maltiness but otherwise a good effort overall. Re-rate Aug 17th: Put up the points a notch, due to an excellent sample at the brewery.

omhper (19791) - Tyres, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2006
[Draught at GBBF] Pitch black, no head. Salty licorice and tar simmers on a soft but firm compact maltiness. Packed with flavour, but not assaulting. Vicely bitter, salty finish. The softness and blance makes it one of the best imperial stouts anywhere.
