Really nice RIS where the coffee plays its part very well. Sweet is balanced with bitterness.

This very dark stout has a small head. Its wonderful taste is dominated by the coffee essence in the roasted malt, with significant caramel taste. The hops are slightly understated, allowing the full flavor of the malt to come through. A great stout.

Pours dark black with a thick Carmel color head. Woody aroma. Flavor starts coffee bitter, finishes sweet. Super smooth mouthfeel. Good Russian but not as intense as imagined. Masks the high alcohol content well

Wow! This was fantastic. The aroma was toasted coffee, malts, toffee. The flavor was sweet yet just a touch bitter from the big coffee notes. Super smooth on the tongue. Loved it.

30-NOV-2013, bottle @home, brought by Erik, from Systembolaget.
Black with tan head.
Aroma is roast and coffee. Taste is roast, coffee, more berry-like, and some soy.
Very full body, soft carbonation, sweet but with a bitter espresso finish. Big brew. Thx. Erik.
