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

Pour was pitch black, brown overly super duper frothy head, impossible bottle pour into the tulip, rings and rings of lacing all the way down, steady bubbling resupplying the foam between sips. Aroma of chocolate, roast and ash, dark fruits, pine, and some styrofoam. Flavor followed all of that, some licorice and earthy coffee notes under it all. Warmer temperatures brought out some of the darker fruits more in the flavor. Mouthfeel was invigorating with the carbonation, drinking lighter in feel than one would guess, dry finish.

Head is dark brown, thick, creamy and very lasting, leaves lacing as it atenuates. Full bodied, jet black color, medium carbonation. Aroma starts with dark chocolate and moves on to ripe plums as it warms, also a bit of roasted coffee grains. Taste follows the aroma with even more presence of plums, a lingering coffee bitterness, well hiding alcohol finishing a little warm. Very nice imperial stout.

On tap @ Kick. Dark, dark brown, almost black body with a nice looking, dense, beige head. Aroma has dark medium roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, dry fruit and hint of pine. Flavor is sweet, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, fruit, berries, pine and good bitterness. Fine body and good, long lasting aftertaste. Very smooth and rich flavored Imp. stout without overdoing anything. Great beer.

Draught sample at Malmö Taproom. Pitch black with a thin tanned head. Roasted aroma with dark malts, liquorice,coffee and caramel malts. Taste is bitter. Full body with an oily texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes lasting dry roasted bitter with dark malts. Lovely Stout.

Alengrin (5893) - BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2016
Buxton’s RIS, shared by Jan, cheers! Thick, dense, creamy, beige head over a jet black beer. Aroma of charcoal, unsugared bitter chocolate, toasted walnut, soy sauce, mocha, dried fig, black pepper, touch of smoked herring, cigar ashes, biltong, dried seaweed, nutmeg. Very umami taste in onset, meaty and dried mushroom accents, very little sweetness, soft background blackberry sourish touch, soft carbo, very thick, fat, oily mouthfeel, supple and not too ’heavy’, deep dark bitter maltiness, bit ashy, unsweetened chocolate and mocha again, roasted bitterness in the end reinforced by a strong dosis of peppery, spicy hop bitterness, some warming whisky-like alcohol in the end. Very dry, roasted, charcoal-like and somewhat demanding, but highly enjoyable example of the style.

dmctaster (104) - Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Aroma is mocha and dark-fruit. It is black with a dark brown head. Head is a consisent 1-2 fingers on every pour. Very light and smooth for a RIS.
