Cask & Bottle conditioned; Regular.

Tsar is rich and powerful, a full bodied Imperial Stout. Malty chocolate, mocha and dark berry fruit-notes preside over a subtle hop profile, whilst a smooth velvety texture in the mouth gives way to a lingering bitter, dark chocolate finish

375ML bottle. Thanks WillRun. Smells great. smells like coffee and oak and even whiskey. loads of chocolatey espresso aroma with vanilla. this smells great. Taste is great. smokey, peet, vanilla, espresso. Dense mouthfeel, thick and almost creamy. Peet throughout with ashy charcoal. I think this is fantastic. a traditional imperial stout with a modern finish. Love it was bottle conditioned.

Old rating transferred to Ratebeer. Very very dark beer, a bit to light body for me for an imp. stout.

Pours a beautiful black with massive mocha head. Aroma is of chocolate, roasted malts, dark fruit and berries. Tastes of dark berry, dark chocolate, fruit, and roasted malt. Has a creamy full body with low carbonation, and a raspberry bitterness near the end.

12oz bottle pours a black color with a bit of head. Lots of malt and good amount of hoppiness. Skunky hops.

Heidbummer (358) - SCOTLAND - MAR 22, 2016
How do I love you Buxton let me count the ways.... A dangerous 1/2 pint at Euston tap. Pours oily inky black, tan head. Subtle aroma of coffee. Big big flavours of toast (burnt, in a good way), coffee, dark dark chocolate and treacle. Boozy hit. Stonking stuff.

Drink from keg. Excellent appear. Lacing 5/5. A lot of bitter choclate, coffee, roasted aromas. Beer full in plate, smooth.

NikkTwist (2900) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Draft at Khyber Pass during Tsar Power. Pitch black pour with a huge light brown head. Creamy body. Mocha. Chocolate liquor. Coffee beans. Burnt peanut shells. Blackberries. Currants. The hop element adds a definite character to this brew. To me it only barely works (and slightly detracts). Big and flavorful.

On est pas trs loin de la Extra Stout de la mme brasserie. Mme noirceur insondable. Mme discrtion dans le nez. Encore moins de mousse, oui, cest possible. MAIS, on diffre en bouche. Moins dagressivit sur le ct caf torrfi (ceci dit,attention, jai bu celle ci aprs lautre y sy est forcment pass des trucs) ; du coup plus damertume ressentie par la suite. Je la trouve plus douce et mieux quilibre malgr les deux degrs dalcool en plus.
