UPDATED: NOV 22, 2023 Batch 01. 500ml corked bottle. 2015 series? But vintage 2014?? Beer name: fyodor's Classic. 13% nie za wielka piana ale fajnie ciemna skorupy orzechow wloskich. Ciecz czarna nie przejrzyste, mocno barwi szklo. Zapach malo intensywny mocna i gorzka kawa z lyzeczka kakao bez cukru, tak szalenie wytrawne, czekolada z 90%kakao zalana espresso. Smaczne ale bez wiekszego wymiaru by mozna mowic ze piwo wybitne, ocena druzgocaco zawyzona. Raczej zawod za taka cene.

patrick767 (6462) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 23, 2021
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2021 Backlog. Black pour with a tan head. Aroma is of dark roast malt, coffee, chocolate, and bourbon. The intense flavor is of roast malt, coffee, chocolate, licorice, and bourbon, and balances the huge malt bill with a hefty dose of hops. Full bodied and delicious.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2021 Bottle. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of dark roast, molasses, licorice and dark chocolate. The taste was similar to the aroma with more dark roast, molasses, licorice, dark chocolate, wood, bourbon, booze, coffee, malts with medium carbonation and a nice chewy aftertaste. Really good.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2020 I had this beer at Aces and Ales in Las Vegas on tap along with a host of other high level imperial stouts. Of additional impact, this is my 100th imperial stout to rate, easily the most of any style and one of my favorites of course. It came to me as the 2017 version of Fyodor’s. Very black certainly in appearance with a dark mahogany skim of foam. The nose was chocolate with a hint of coffee. But it was the taste I was there for. Really good. Bakers chocolate, dark wheat bread, toffee and malt with a great finishing bitterness. Potent with the bourbon effect and tasty. Smooth too.

BREWMUSKCLES (3233) - New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2020
UPDATED: APR 16, 2020 Sugar Vanilla and Old Grandad. Roasted Cocoa and chocolate the alcohol makes it seem light while the dark fruits give it wafting body and chew. Vanilla for balance i am sure. Black as coal with eerie dark brown lacing that slithers around the top of the glass like a snake and gets swallowed by the alcohol or done in by Pappy.Licorice? oh yeah. Some Caramel dang in Earthy ash..
