COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg/nitro/bottle
A 10% decadent and indulgent Imperial Russian Stout. Brewed with a copious amount of dark malts, infused with coffee beans during the boil and after fermentation and aged on cacao nibs, vanilla pods and toasted oak chips. This opulent whirl of chocolate, coffee, dark malts and hops even rivals the most colourful of imperial Faberge eggs. Originally created to celebrate the Russian Royal Family, this is a fitting tribute with which to toast your own empire.

When I pored this one it came out motor oil black with a very very dark tan small head. The aroma is coffee and candy sugar. The flavor is bitter dark chocolate and bitter finish. It flows across the palate smooth with a slight tingle of carbonation. Overall a bit too bitter for my taste.

Fles geprobeerd met LiekevdV en PatrickvL. Het is een diep zwart bier met een dun bruin schuim. Het heeft een wijnachtige geur. De smaak is gebrand, koffie met cacao in de nasmaak.

Pours dark black with a tan head and thick lacing. Aroma is coffee, oak, vanilla, dark chocolate, ash, plum and raisin. Taste is sweet with a dry and long bitter finish and thick body. Powerful stuff, albeit too much coffee to my taste.

Fullpintofbeer (497) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2018
From bottle. Small dark head, pitch black colour. Aroma: soy sauce, coffee, alcohol. Sour with dry/coffee aftertaste. Full body, rather astringent finish, thick, oily, flat. Generally not bad, but it is a little bit too dry.

Bottle from Pivný raj What great evening I'm having. One black beauty followed by another where this sticks to the game. Both in taste and aroma raisins play the prime for me while the coffee and dark chocolate doesn't want to stay behind. Lovely.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2018 butelka 330 ml data do 21.07.2020. Słusznie należy się najwyższa nota za wygląd. czarne, nieprzejrzyste, odpowiednio gęste. piana ciemnobeżowa, ładna choć szybko znika. W aromacie pierwsze skrzypce po otwarciu gra wędzonka torfowa, kawa. Po chwili pojawia się śliwka, ciemne kakao, aromat ciasta typu murzynek lub piernik. w smaku wytrawne, alkohol dobrze ukryty choć czuć przyjemne rozgrzewanie w przełyku. Dominuje kawa i wniesiona przez nią kwaśność oraz gorzka czekolada. Goryczka średnia, długa, rozgrzewajaca.

MasDen (534) - Mogilev, BELARUS - JAN 7, 2018
Aroma is cocoa, chocolate, burnt malt. Dark without head. Burnt malt, chocolate, cocoa in flavor. Medium body, light carbonation.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2018 Zwart bier met een pittig aroma van koffie en cacao. Deze komen ook terug in de smaak. Bitter en een licht zoete laag met kandij.
