Moolesen (157) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Deep black with a beige head. Roasted malt and liquorice in the nose. Very intense aroma. Nice intense taste. Hints of tar, rich and at the same time not overwhelming. Balanced bitter finish with a nice length. Great beer.

MarcoDL (1995) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2014
Bit like a double stout. Has a body of roasted malt, but lacks the aggresiveness of a IS. Sort of like an IS for starters.

androman (296) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2014
33cl bottle @ home from Mitra. Nearly black color, big brown creamy head, good lacing. Aroma coffee, plum and glue in the nose, flavor is chocolate, some coffee, licorice, soy sauce, dark fruits, slightly wineish, roasted malt, all moderated. Alcohol is slightly noticable. Taste light sweetness, medium to heavy toasty bitterness, slightly acidic. Medium body, slick feel, soft carbonation, not very long lasting moderated bitter finish. Fine but a bit too easy for a russian imperial stout.

Zoals de meeste bieren van SNAB is deze ook erg lekker. Smaak : chocolade,zoetig, beetje rook met een lekker bittere nasmaak.

tricksta_p (880) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2014
Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, some dark fruits, just a little coffee. Flavour is medium sweet, malts and chocolate. Manages to hide its alcohol well. Quaffable and enjoyable, but lacking some oomph.

Bottle at home. Pours dark with a tan head. Aroma of malts with a bit of smoke. Malty taste, bit of chocolate and roasted malts in there, some smoke too. Okay brew, but not much of an imperial stout.
