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

jackl (8297) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle @ home. The pour’s thick, oily black with a tight, creamy tan head. Attractive. The nose is strong sweet Hershey’s chocolate syrup, charred malts, espresso bean, booze-infused fudge and bitter dark chocolate. Big, expressive aromas. The taste is similarly outsized. Heavy notes of freshly ground espresso. Charred wood and gritty roasted malt flavors. Big, fat, thick chocolate milkshake. Dry, hoppy bitter finish. Ashy. The body’s thick and viscous. Luxurious mouthfeel. This beer wears the ABV well, though it certainly demands to be drunk at a leisurely pace. Overall, pretty outstanding. I feel like I’ve cheated myself by waiting this long to try this beer. It’s great. If this was made by a hip US brewery it’d have a huge reputation.

Dark brown with a lot of crud. Rich smooth imperial stout aroma, and flavor ranging from chocolate sweet on the start to cherries and coffee on the end. Finishes with a slight burn. Very enjoyable.

Pours black, tiny ring of head and oily film. Aroma is cocoa. Velvety-foamy texture. Red fruit in port? Slightly sweet. Bit of bitterness on the finish, and warming.
