3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample from 65 cl. bottle. Love the label! Finally some credit for this legendary Soviet space dog! Pitch back with a thin, tanned head. Roasted aroma with dark malts, red berries, herbal hops, coffee, chocolate, fruits and liquorice. Taste is bitter. Medium to full body with a creamy texture. Finishes dry and roasted with liquorice and rich malts. Very enjoyable.

Bottle 65 cl. Pours an intense, pitch black with a small, light brown head. Intense dark chocolate aroma. Rich and very full body, dark slightly salty licorice notes and some bitter dark chocolate again. Not overly roasty. Very, very rich and filling indeed. 081114

Bottle. This is a nice big hoppy brew with lots of great roasted malt flavour. I really like this but given that Stone is $5 cheaper in GA its still a hard sell.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a deep sable only a flea’s eyebrow above jet black with a thick and rather persistent tan head. Rich aroma has coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, smoky malt, licorice, and subtle toffee notes. Flavor is even better, having everything from the aroma plus snips of caramel and molasses - and a weird waxy touch. Firm texture is quite fizzy, leaving a bold finish of caramel, mocha and molasses. Barking good!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at my place with Dan. Pours black with nice foamy. Aroma is alcohol, heavily roasted malt, leathery, new car aroma. Mouthfeel, soft, chewy, velvety, fluffy for an imperial stout. Taste is full flavored maltiness with no alcoholic notes, roasted malt that comes through as a soft malty quality, burnt notes that mesh well, chocolate, red wine notes (yes I know this is not the barrel aged cersion). Finish is medium length, smooth lasting blend of the taste that turns into a slight warming burn. Very nice, would pound again.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a spent motor oil black. As it settles, the scorched mocha colored microbubbles contrast with the black, viscous liquid in a mesmerizing fashion. A thick, creamy, very dark mocha colored (nearing a purple hue) head forms. This is the darkest beer, ale and head, I’ve ever seen. Pungent kalamata olive, tobacco, and chocolate in the nose. Viscous, creamy and smooth mouthfeel. Powerful kalamata olive is the predominant flavor. Though Worcestershire sauce is neck and neck. Smoky wood and raisin is there too. Extraordinarily unique and wonderful.
