The beer has hints of coffee, but it’s a bit rough compared to most imperial stouts I’ve had. very drinkable but could be more smooth. Black and tan head aroma is of roast coffee.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mild aroma of light roast , slight chocolate, some mineral/ tinnyness. Taste is mild herbal/perfumey, light berry, diet cola,diet cola in finish as it gets prgressivly worse, glad I dindt buy a sixer of this, easy drinkability but has a diety perfumey like taste. Clove sweetness. Herbal bitter. This kinda sucks for an imperial stout. Bad aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle served in a tulip. The beer pours a midnight black with a somewhat thick tan head that shrinks down and leaves nice lacing. Really good looking beer. Aroma is roasted barley, coffee, cocoa, and some woody smells. It is a very roasty smelling beer. Taste is mostly dark roasted coffee and cocoa. It takes on a dark chocolate with cream flavor as it warms up and is a pretty nice sipper. Alcohol is really not visible at all and the beer remains sticky and clings to your mouth. I could have a few of these, pretty nice.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. The pour is black with little head. The aroma is mostly malt with some heavy dark fruits, almost a blackberry and plum aroma. The taste is rater thin for an imperial. A little boring taste compared to the smell.

Pours an inky dark brown with a vigorous (in a good way) chocolate milk colored head. Aroma is almost nothing. Hint of chocolate, metallic. Taste is booze, coffee, smoke, medium mouthfeel, smooth finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours opaque black with a small tan head that dissipates quickly leaving a ring that has some lacing. Aroma is roasty licorice. Flavor is surprisingly astringent and acidic, strong anise, roasted malts and chocolate. Medium plus body, a bit creamy. Not bad, but I am just not much of a fan of anise-heavy stouts.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. 3/11/14. Pours dark brown-black with a thin, fluffy brown head. Aroma is dark chocolate, dark berries, creamy, chalk, earth, hint of vanilla, touch of berries. Taste is dark chocolate, bubblegum, fruit esthers, grass, light fruits, dark berries, grass, hint of spruce; finish is dark chocolate, leather, bitter fruit peel. Interesting. Thin lacing; not particularly resilient. Medium-full bodied. Medium carbonation; active carbonation, thin bubbles. Tasty, interesting, enjoyable. A bit odd for a Russian Imperial Stout but enjoyable nonetheless.
