bottiglia bellissima,prima russian imperial stout inglese della mia vita..il fatto che gli inglesi siano più "delicati",soprattutto paragonati agli americani è 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 però..scura ma non tropoo,schiuma bianca e poco persistente..il gusto altrettanto,è una buonissima imperial stout ma è sottotono sotto tutti gli aspetti!

Aroma is chocolate and roasty malts. Poured jet black into snifter; head dissipated quickly. Flavor is hot chocolate with an aftertaste of alcohol. No burn; very nice.

freretoc (1288) - Besançon, FRANCE - OCT 23, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la maison, couleur rubis/noire, pas d’effervescence et pas de bulles. Au nez grosse attaque sur le bois et l’alcool. En bouche attaque sur sur le brandy, le kiersch et la cerise puis assez alcooleuse, fin de bouche sur le chocolat et le café mais aussi avec une longueur sur le bois. Assez ronde même si elle piquait avec le sucre.

On bottle with Visionthing, thanks a lot! Black color, some foma. Medium/high aroma intensity; licorice, leather, lightly roasted, choclate and malt- also distinct smooth after storage. Full body & high complexity. Some immediate sweetness, some balaincing bitterness. Very enjoyable

visionthing (3886) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2015
33cl bottle from some bottle shop in Tallinn some time ago. Pours close to pitch black with a minimal, beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate and cocoa, dark fruits and hints of hops and raisins. Medium sweet, somewhat mild roasty flavours with a fairly balanced bitterness. Certainly a decent IS.

rikstar (1638) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2015
0,33l fles thuis. Zwart met een crème kraag. Geur is rozijnen en likeur. Smaak Is redelijk lijk gebrand met koffiebonen daarna caramel zoetje. Niet helmaal mijn ding.

Coffee and chocolate on the nose. Coffee, chocolate, caramel and soy sauce to taste. Good bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Good beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Black color with a fine beige head. Ok lacing. Coffee, chocolate and mild fruity aroma. Medium + body and a pleasant carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Chocolate, some licorice, mild roasted and mild fruity flavor. A bit oily texture and very well hidden alcohol.
[Bottle (2012 Vintage – bottle #820) from Prešporská Pivotéka in Bratislava, Slovakia]
