3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Russian imperial stout is like pizza and sex - even when itís mediocre itís still pretty great. This is a simple, well-made imperial stout of no special distinction, but hey - itís an imperial stout, so how bad can it be? The appearance is consistent with the style: dark body, inch of foam, reasonable length. Sweet aroma of dried fruits - sultanas, dates - plus chocolate powder. Supple and languorous in the mouth - very nicely carbonated. On the tongue, licorice root and spicy alcohol with roasted malts dominant. Not overly sweet, which is a big plus in my book. Big warming finish, perfect for a cold winterís night. The more I drank the more I liked. Often goes the other way. (330ml bottle from Leura Cellars. 2012 vintage, bottle 5143)

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown with a red tint and fizzy, tan, frothy, lacy, lasting head. Nice smell of roast, deep coffee, and lots of sweet milk chocolate. Medium frothy oily body. Nice roast with a full taste of malt, raisins, roast, and a burnt, coffee chocolate finish. The finish is so delicious that it keeps my tongue burnt. Delicious.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown, almost black, body with a small wispy beige head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is heavy burnt caramel, roast, some licorice, some dark chocolate, and some minimal alcohol. The flavor is a little thin, a little overly sweet, too much burnt caramel, and minimal alcohol. Not exactly up my alley as far as the style goes. This is just a little too light bodied and lacking in malt. Minimal soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering caramel finish. Not among my favorites for the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, ruby brown colour with a short and tanned foamy layer. Moderately roasty malty aroma with notes of chestnuts, leather, mocha and traces of molasses. Sweet and slightly roasty bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a smooth carbonation. Not overly roasted flavours compared to other Imperial Stouts, rather nutty with a touch of chocolate, hints of coffee in the background, as well as some liquorice spice; medium-dry, mildly roasted bitter-sweet finish with notes of chocolate and a tinge of booze in the aftertaste. 30.V.14

Cola black beer with a small beige head. Sweet liquorice and roasty aroma. Medium to full bodied. Coffee, extra dark chocolate and liquorice. Some crispy carbonation. Very full flavored. Quite nice mouth feel. Alcohol is well hidden. I like the amount of bitterness. A very good, sweet and strong porter with a nice drinkability.
