Draft. Black as night with brown head and nice lacing. Aroma is mil bourbon and that's it. Maybe a little coffee. Tastes like weak coffee bourbon stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a think brown/tan head. Dark black/brown body. Aroma had sweet caramel and chocolate. Taste followed the aroma, light chocolate, light hops sweet malt. Overall, not a bad stout, although the "imperial" part seems lacking.

"Interesting way to tweak the Siberian Night, although it doesnít come close to matching up with the original. More subdued with a subtle fruity yeast quality, but it still retains all resemblance to a hearty stout. Rich roasted aroma and flavors balanced by a firm bitterness, sweet chocolate and a touch of earthy yeast."

Sampled at Clevelandís Winter Warmer Festival 2010. This was called "Belgian Imperial Stout" but didnít mention its origin or if it was a combination of Cerberus & Siberian...so I donít know if itís the same. ABV was also listed as %10. It was black with a thin brown head. Roasted, coffee like aroma and flavor with strong malts. Body was rather thin and not as rich or chocolaty as Siberian.

Dogbrick (7567) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2009
Cask version at Winking Lizardís 1st Annual Real Ale Fest (03/28/09): This brew pours nearly black with some ruby highlights and a medium foamy beige head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Roasted malt and yeast in the nose. Medium to full body with a predominantly yeasty character, along with notes of roasted malt and coffee. The finish is clean and yeasty with a chocolate malt aftertaste. Overall an interesting hybrid but the Cerberus side far outweighs the Siberian Night side.

Cask at the 1st Annual Winking Lizard Tavern Real Ale Festival on 3.28.09. Dark brown pour with a medium tan head. Somewhat roasty aroma, but mostly Belgian yeast. Flavor was much the same, with the emphasis strictly on the Belgian ale side as opposed to the stout side. Some chocolate malt, but mostly yeast. Not a bad try at a blend, but I think the ratio was a bit off.
