Tasted on 09.08.15. Trade with Jamedra. Quite intensive aroma of chocolate and coffee ground. Small beige head disappearing to ring. Completely black colour. Intensive roasted and coffee taste with pleasant mouthcoating chocolate sweetness. Long roasted bitter aftertaste. It tastes like coffee stout but is still very enjoyable.

December 2016 - Swing top bottle share at Leighton’s. Thanks Fergus! As ’Břevnovský Benedict Russian Imperial Stout’, 2014 vintage. Totally opaque oily thick pour to form a black beer with a small brown head. Aroma is dark chocolate, slightly vegetal, paprika salt, brown bread, some Frazzles sweets. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste has more of that paprika vibe, slightly tart red berry, seared red pepper, slightly tart. Not sure it’s entirely meant to be like this but I quite like the flavour. (3.8)
