Bottle. Pours a deep red color with a fine one-finger beige head. Aroma of malt, coffee and fruits. Taste is of roasted malt, coffee, caramel, chocolate, dark ripe fruits and a hint of licorice. Very sweet and dry finish with generous notes of coffee. Medium (if a bit watery) body and low carbonation. Taste is okay but nothing too special.

Russian imperial stout is like pizza and sex - even when it’s mediocre it’s still pretty great. This is a simple, well-made imperial stout of no special distinction, but hey - it’s 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 winter’s night. The more I drank the more I liked. Often goes the other way. (330ml bottle from Leura Cellars. 2012 vintage, bottle 5143)

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.
