Imperial Russian Stout
Rich and dark with smoke, subtle peatiness and the power of the dark malts. Molasses and liquorice and chocolate goodness all wrapped up in a smooth, warming liquid. Finishes with a distinct humming bitterness carried well by the hop and malt combo.

500ml bottle. Very nice smoky and strong stout. Smooth and full flavoured. A bit pricy though at £4 a bottle.

500 ml bottle. Pours an opaque mahogany with a medium, tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, liquorice, caramel, coffee and prunes. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, liquorice, vanilla, a hint of smoke and a dry, bitter coffee finish. Full body with a creamy, oily texture and soft carbonation.

50cl bottle. Pours black with a thick, frothy beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, some liquor, some dark fruits, light peat and soy sauce notes. Taste has a very good roastiness with bitter coffee, chocolate, some licorice, light smoke/peat again. Nice final bitterness with coffee powder notes. Creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation. Very good.

koleminer20 (628) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - OCT 12, 2014
500 mL bottle. The pour is a dark brown. It's thin with ruby and garnet throughout and a light tan head that fades quickly, leaving just a film. The aroma is dominated by licorice. There is some malt and roast, then it all fades in lieu of a strong spiciness which I'm not too keen on. The flavor is very similar. It starts with heavy licorice and molasses and then rolls through a spicy complexity and finishes with a light roast. The mouth feel is thin and watery, with minimal carbonation. It just remains then and slick. The aftertaste is a little roast, but mostly a bitter spice-coated licorice. Definitely not among some of the good Russians. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

emartell (248) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - OCT 3, 2014
Aromas demasiado frescos para una stout. Se perciben notas herbales, principalmente a pino procedente de los lupulos utilizados. De igual forma se perciben ligeras notas a caramelo y grano tostado. Su apariencia es excelente, color profundamente negro, cuerpo redondo, carbonatacion de baja a media, corona de espuma abundante de alta retención. En boca es cremosa, suave, fresca y equilibrada. Al paladar es fácil de tomar para tratarse de una Imperial Stout de 7.4 % de Alcohol. Se perciben ligeramente notas tostadas, no así café, cacao u chocolate, dando notable importancia al lúpulo utilizado, que le da una gran frescura, un amargor moderado y un final suave aunque equilibrado. En general se trata de una Imperial stout atípica, con buen sabor, fácil de tomar, aún que un poco fuera del estilo, dando un peso importante al amargor herbal por el lúpulo utilizado, más que al tostado de los granos o a los sabores amargos del chocolate.

Pours dark, slightly brown with moderate head, prone to diminishing. Smell of roast coffee, malt, and a hint of hops. Taste is sweet with moderate carbonation and a slight hoppy aftertaste. A very nicely balanced beer specimen.

goleiro (155) - Lublin, POLAND - SEP 15, 2014
Piana beżowa, obfita, kremowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, utrzymuje się cały czas prawie, zdobi szkło, piękna po prostu. Kolor ciemny, bardzo brunatny, ale chyba nie czarny, do tego nieprzejrzysty. Głównie palone aromaty, trochę stoutowe, ale to jest taki specyficzny aromat którego opisać nie potrafię, bardzo intrygujący i ciekawy. Smak złożony, palony i nieco kawowy, i taki jakiś ciekawy niby-palony, nie wiem co to jest, ale znajome i bardzo ciekawe, wysycenie nie za wysokie, i w ogóle nie czuć alkoholu. Może czekolada? Czuć za to nieco oleistośc, że piwo jest nieco gęstsze, i ma taką fajną "fakturę", ma trochę ciała. Chętnie się pije.
