3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2013 bomber recíd from markwise in trade. aged for 2.5 years. perfect 5 for appearance - darkest motor oil black with minimal to no head. also perfect 5 for palate - sludgy fudge thickness. this stuff literally sticks to the side of the glass. aroma - I am not getting much and it isnít the best for an impy stout - a little funk sour smell with some lactose. Taste is smoothest of smooth.. zero carbonation. deep dark roasted coffee/malts but very smooth the negative is a slight sourness on back end - why is that there? wonder if the 2.5 years added the sourness?

Draft Third of a Pint at Route CBC Festival at Craft Beer Co, Clapham, London in Oct 2015 - Pitch Black in colour. Dark tan head. Very Malty; dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, caramel, brown sugar, liquorice and smoke notes. Fruity; dark fruits, raisins, dates, citrus notes. Rich, thick, tarry and a bit oily. Initially sweet roast chocolate and coffee malty and fruity becoming increasingly bitter in the finish. Enjoyed this. Good Impy Stout! (2015-10-03)

Thanks Matt for sharing the bottle! Poured into a taster showing pitch black with no head or lacing.
The nose shows light caramel and toffee malts.
The palate is light bodied and lightly carbonated. Lightly tart with flavors of light bourbon with hints of soy sauce. Smoky with a toaster bitterness on the finish.

Rami Rami is drinking a Marshal Zhukovís Imperial Stout by Cigar City Brewing at Chmielarnia Marszałkowska
Bardzo fajnie klasyczny, mocno palony, polwytrawny, kwaskowaty, figowy, owocowy, ryli klasa, czadowy. I dosc lekki w odbiorze

Fantastyczny aromat kawy, czekolady, pojawia się także sos sojowy i pumpernikiel. W smaku sypkie kakao, dużo ciała. Robi mega wrażenie.

Bottle at Christmas Dinner, paired with politics and chocolate. This is a mighty fine Russian Imperial Stout that leans more toward the sweet milk chocolate and raisin side than a lot of imperial stouts. Big flavors of chocolate, coffee, molasses, and Christmas pudding. A beer to ring out 2016 with.

650 ml. Ebony body with a cocoa-colored film of creamy bubbles. Aroma is espresso, chocolate toffee, oats, plum, dates and a touch of soy. Tastes of chocolate toffee, cocoa powder, dark coffee with cream, berries, oats and bitter iron-like notes of blackstrap molasses. Long finish shows some tobacco and merlot. Heavy body is smooth and rich, but has a drinkable balance for such a big dessert.

Weird. I had a rating for this once before, from a growler Joey brought to an Orlando RB tasting years ago. Now that rating has been moved to the Humidor Series Imperial Stout. I guess thatís right. Fortunately I recently had a bomber of this at a bar, so this one wonít get moved. Didnít have that same meaty taste, so itís probably definitely different. This was a straight up imperial stout, nothing weird or unusual, just typical CC: big, heavy, chewy. Coffee and chocolate and roast. Strong. Semi-sweet, lightly tannic.

Bottle. Pours black with a minimal brown head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Roasty malt notes with plenty of chocolate and sweet flavor. Full bodied with a sweet finish.
