4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Deep ruby-brown colour with a small tan head. Rich, complex aroma with notes of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and liquorice. Flavour is equally complex - bittersweet chocolate, roasty coffee, whiskey & brandy, and a warm, bitter finish. Remarkable stuff.
Nothing I can say that hasn’t already been said. Absolutely delicious. Only thing that would make this stout perfect is a more dry dark chocolate finish. trentacle (36) - NEW ZEALAND - APR 19, 2018
Is this a beer or a powder keg? Powerful enough to blow your socks off, beauty enough to frame and tasty enough to keep the whole empire placated. Jabah (935) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - APR 16, 2018
Theres a lot of good quality imperial stouts out there now, so this one is tough to review as far as differences. Basically a stronger, heavy chocolate, roasty stout. My first sample from North Coast, and I am liking it. Near black appearance. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, maybe a little toffee and/or caramel. All kinds of sweet stuff, but also has a slight bitter/hoppy side to it. Only bought a single to try out, but will be buying a 4-pack soon. sanjp (8) - - APR 14, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: APR 14, 2018 제발 최순실 맥주라고 하지 말아주십시오.
이렇게 위대한 맥주에게 버릇 없게 뭐하는 짓입니까
에스프레소의 씁쓸함과 향이 초콜릿의 달달함을 만나 더욱 풍부해지고
씁쓸함은 여운을 남겨 상업성마저 완벽한 맥주입니다.

Quite good imperial stout.

Well this was indeed a delicious Russian imperial stout that lives up to its hype. From the bottle, pours a faintly ruby-accented black with a long lasting full creamy khaki head, flawless. Moderately strong aroma of toffee and roasted malt. Both the aroma and the flavor are surprisingly "relaxed" for the style, with zero alcohol burn and a relatively non-complex profile of heavily roasted/charred malts that don't overwhelm the palate. There is also a distinct earthy English hoppiness in the background of the charred flavors. Exceedingly clean finishing, in fact this is the cleanest finish I could imagine for any imperial stout. It is also surprisingly light-bodied, probably making this the most sessionable R.I.S. I've ever experienced, although "sessionable" is hardly a word I ever thought I would use to describe this style. Overall a mild-mannered yet savory brew, something I would personally recommend to someone looking for an approachable introduction to this strong style. GaBeer79 (1) - - MAR 16, 2018 does not count
Muy obscura, amarga, buena espuma.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2018 Akin to a beautiful drift on the racetrack: a magical balance of malt and hops, showing off its long finish of smoky, dark flavors enveloping on every sip..
