Nurmis (294) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 31, 2016
Bottle at home. Pitch black with some white lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, liquorice and notes of alcohol and herbal hops. Medium sweetness, medium bitterness. Really good.

minihame2 (438) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 28, 2016
Slightly translucent, black body with some white lacing. Faint aroma with malts and a little bit of coffee in the background. Taste begins sweet, some roasted malts and ends in a slightly bitter note. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Really easy imperial stout, mostly sweet taste but itís lacking all the good things like roastiness, heavy malt taste and rich body. I like it as a beer but as an imperial stout itís very lackluster.

MiP (15170) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2016
Bottle, 10% at Kō16. Fruity aroma. Black colour, seems hazy. No head to speak of. Salty and roasted flavour. Sort of fruity finish.

bhensonb (13823) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 17, 2016
Bottle from BarleyWine. Bottle 1494 of the 2012 vintage. Pours dark brown with a sight beige or tan head. Aroma of mixed chocolate and licorice. Sweet and malty. Med body or so. Flavor is mixed licorice and chocolate. Some fruit notes - but not fresh. More dark or dried. Overall it has good flavor, but seems a bit thin and dry. But Iím not the czar, so Iíll say itís a good drink.

Bottle. Brown color, wispy off-white head. Fairly dry aroma, wood and dark malts. Dry flavor, licorice, hops, oak, herbal notes. Full body, medium-light carbonation. Too dry.

I like the roasted coffee flavour that the beer has behind every maltiness and other basic Stout flavors.

thellgren (758) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2016
0.33 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki (2015 vintage). Appearance is dark ruby with small white head. Taste has some dark chocolate and a bitter end. It is also a bit tart. The historical export to Russia was probably sweeter than this, even too sweet for modern taste. ABV seems to be at the right level.

Giochaurand (394) - FINLAND - FEB 29, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear very dark red amber with tanned creamy head. Aroma is malty, chocolate, coffee, anise and liquorice. Taste is roasted malts, alcohol, dry wood. A bit thinner than expected.
