Draft at the brewpub. Poured an opaque black color with a light brown head. Tobacco, leather, and roasted nuts graced the aroma. Medium bodied with lots of roast and light lingering bitterness. I also tasted nuts and dark chocolate and occasionally some subdued mint.

On tap at the brewpub. Black with a dark tan head. A fantastic head it is: cascading nitrogen-induced tiny bubbles falling down. The strong aroma is of coffee and molasses. This beer has an interesting milky sourness for a dry stout. Finish gives you a strong reminder flavor of the gypsum that is in it. Delicious!

Draft flight 3/23/05 (Brewery)-Pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma of malts, chocolate, and coffee. Taste of the same with a bit of licorice. This full bodied brew was well balanced and goes down easy.

Great looking deep sasparilla color with firm chocolate head. Wonderful medley of deep chocolate and dark chocolate notes in flavor and aroma. Roast is stronger in aroma than in flavor. Very creamy and definitely nitrogenated.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 14, 2009
Tap at the brewpub: A tan bubbly head tops a deep brown with ruby at the edges. Mild roast in the aroma with cocoa flakes. Thin yet rounded feel. The flavor has a nutty roast to it but there’s apparent diacetyl. The roasted finish is mainly composed of medium huskiness. Eh.

I had this on draft at the Thirsty Bear brewpub. hmm, an Irish Stout w/ a Russian name... I thought it was thin and a bit weak.

Gorbalev (2958) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2005
On tap, brewpub. Pitch black, medium nitro tan head. Strong roasted barley aroma - sweet as well. Medium watery mouthfeel. Very sweet taste, I thought this was easily a sweet stout all the way. Lots of roast as well. Apart from the watery aspect, this stout seemed somehow unique and pretty good.

On tap @ Thirsty Bear. Best of the tasting. Thick, creamy, almost velvet-like texture on the tongue. Black with cola-colored edges and milky latte-like head. Flavor is rich chocolate and roasted malt. Not overly complex but tasty.
