Aroma is liquorice, some alcohol, mild dark dry fruits, some slight roasted notes as well as very strong chocolate and mild spicyness. Flavour is chocolate, alcohol, some slight roasted notes, mild burning spicyness as well as some nuttyness and liquorice. A very pleasantly balanced brew. Top class brew!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2010 Hand bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours pitch black with a deep almost reddish brown head - I’ve never quite seen anything like it. The aroma is equally unique, a really enticing mixture of vanilla, hard roasted malts, and a whiff of chili - everything perfectly balanced. The body is solid, lots of hard roasted malts, some sweet cocoa comes out and the chili leaves a little bite on my lips. The finish is dark chocolate, the hard roasted malts leaving a little bitterness. Finally a truly unique Imperial Stout with the spicing being perfectly subtle and balanced. I really dig this. 141109

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, thanks baggio! Very black, small brown head. Heavy on cocoa and coconut. Sweet with clean mouthfeel and less full body than anticipated. Flavours of milk chocolate, vanilla and treacle. A slight chili tingle in the finish. The aggressive Marshal Zhukov istamed by the added spices, but the hard mouthfeel is still there.

22nd May 2010. ChrisOs ’Blue Ridge Mountains Of Virginia’ tasting! Opaque black beer with a dark chocolate coloured head. Chocolatey nose. Soft palate with a little carbonated froth. Dark semi sweet chocolate with a touch of vanilla. Some subtle chili heat at the end. A very deft beer. The draft version was a little less sweet and quite a bit more chili heat.
