3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, VINTAGE 2011. Pretty close to black with a large creamy light brown head. Charcoal, cocoa, fruity bubblegum yeast notes, wood, dark dried fruits. Full body, creamy/sticky texture, medium carbonation, medium sweet and bitter, very light acidic. Light bitter and dry finish with lingering burnt notes. Solid stout, but a bit too yeasty for my taste. Cool label, learned a bit about Slavic folklore while drinking this.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: A very dark brown color with a mountain of brown head that fades away slowly and leaves sticky sheet lacing. Nose is relatively muted at first, but comes through stronger as it warms. Roast and dark chocolate are significant with just slight hints of espresso. The same carries on in the flavor by way of an outstandingly silky and rich mouthful. Delicate, but stout. A simple interpretation of the style done with great care and attention to detail. Very well done.

Enjoyed on 12/26/2013. This is a very smooth stout. Pours on the lighter side of most stouts that I've had. This is not too flavorful but is a great session stout. Recommend by a fire or with a steak
