Bottled (thanks fonefan). Very deep copper colour with a small slightly off-white head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, some wood and mild ripe fruits. Flavour is roasted malts, some floral notes along with wood and mild caramel. Hides the ABV quite well, but isnít all too interesting overall.

bottiglia bellissima,prima russian imperial stout inglese della mia vita..il fatto che gli inglesi siano piý "delicati",soprattutto paragonati agli americani Ť evidente principalmente dalle birre! ti aspetti una birra con schiuma nocciola,spessissima,densa e invece ti ritrovi a bere una birra veramente strana! aroma nemmeno troppo intenso,tipico dello stile perÚ..scura ma non tropoo,schiuma bianca e poco persistente..il gusto altrettanto,Ť una buonissima imperial stout ma Ť sottotono sotto tutti gli aspetti!

TET (1434) - FINLAND - FEB 26, 2014
A colablack beer with a dense, medium and beige head. The nose is mainly roasted with coffee, also some liquirice and sweetness of berries. Taste is strong and roasted, quite high sweetness is balancing the roastiness, some liquirice. The end is almost burned, hopped, slightly herbal and long. Almost full bodied, the strong taste is slows down the drinkability. Not a top quality IS but quite nice just as a beer.

Excellent balanced beer, I really love these imperial stouts. Well, I think Iíve tasted two, but canít complain about those. Roasty, caramel, chocolate, medium bitterness, ripe plums, citrus and nice hops. Itís a pity that it was only a small special batch at the alcohol store.

mjs (4277) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2014
(Bottle, 0.33 l - 2014 vintage, bottle #5467, lot F16 15, from Alko, 20140221) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had liquorice, ash, sweetness and burnt malts. Palate was full bodied, warmimg and oily with medium carbonation. Flavours were burnt malts, hops, alcohol, sweetness, liquorice, ash and bitterness. Aftertaste was burnt and bitter. A bit too burnt and boozy to be a very good imperial stout.
