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

Piana skąpa wymuszana niewielki jej krążek utrzymuje sie długo, kolor czarny. Aromat słodki, karmelowy, ciemne owoce, palonośc, mleczna czekolada, przyjemny. Smak, spora paloność, wyraźne pozostałości po chmieleniu, gorzka czekolada, kawa, karmel, melasa, owoce suszone. W strukturze gładkie, oleista, ukryty alkohol, wyraźna goryczka. Świetne piwo, niesamowicie pijalne Brawo WOW

Jabic (733) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 27, 2017
Ar: Sour cherries; rough ashy and burnt notes. Ap: Black and opaque; very large mocha head with good retention, leaving a giant, melty dome of foam and layers and chunks of lacing on the glass sides. T: Acetone and cherry; phenolic; band-aid; harsh acid flavor and some dark chocolate; cooked sherry; low sweetness; pine and bitters on the finish. P: Medium body with high carbonation; finish is medium-dry. O: There may be a great imperial stout behind this beer, but it just comes across as harsh, infected, and somewhat oxidized.
