Bottle share by alexsdad06. Poured black color with an average creamy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate, earthy with a small alcohol aroma. Median to full body with a creamy texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet chocolate malt flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.
A 22 fl. oz. bomber, bottled on 14th January 2016. Poured into a snifter. It was black in colour with a one finger dark tan head that had pretty good retention and left some nice lacing. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, cocoa, espresso, liquorice, anise, pine with a hint of citrus peel and char. Tastes roasty, char, chocolate, cocoa and liquorice with some piney hops coming through at the end. Medium to full bodied with low carbonation. Overall nice to sip, and even after almost two years, the hops are still coming through quite clearly on the finish, it kind of reminded me a bit of a strong Black IPA. colui72 (1120) - HONG KONG - NOV 29, 2017
Pours creamy black, with a large brown head and excellent lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, soy, tobacco and dark fruits. Tastes low bitter, strong roasted malts, chocolate, tobacco, cherries, dark berries, alcohol very well hidden. Creamy, full bodied, softly carbonated, with lingering flavours, very rich and pleasant. A very well made and balanced Russian. Awesome. HuskerTan (2405) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - NOV 13, 2017

P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, robust finish.
O- Lots of tobacco and char. A touch of smoke and cocoa as well. Liked it quite a bit but might be a touch overrated.
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2017 Bottle in Florida. Pitch black pour. Bread, smoke & burnt syrup. Tastes excessively alcoholic. Think I'm being generous with 3 stars gripweed57 (2918) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - OCT 7, 2017
22 ounce bottle. Opaque black color. Moderate creamy tan head. Rich chocolate malt aroma. Roasted malt, chocolate syrup, espresso and burnt toasted raisin bread flavors. Creamy mouthfeel and smooth drinking for a RIS. The 12.5% ABV is hardly apparent, which is scary! Finish is roasty, toast and mildly smoky.

Bottle from a grocery store in San Carlos, May 2017; purchased while on a business trip. Pours pitch black with a thick creamy+looking tan head. Big aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, cherries. Quite impressive slick smooth mouth feel. Was mildly worried it would be bitter based on the aroma, but it is really nicely balanced, with sweet chocolate, blueberry, and cherry flavours, some bitter coffee in the middle, and a long sweet finish with some light bitterness.

Bitter malts and toast, you can definitely tell this is an alcoholic beverage. Not a whole lot of sweetness at all. Very dark with little head though tons of lacing. Surprisingly lighter bod than I expected. Good, but I found it overpoweringly acrid at times and that’s unusual Svesse (8831) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2017
(Bottle) Black colour with firm, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with black coffee, cacao, dark fruit, liquorice and hints of blueberries. Malty, roasted taste with notes of strong black coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, blueberries, dried fruit, liquorice and a generous coffee bitterness in the finish. Full body, with a certain sweetness. Rounded mouthfeel and fairly well balanced, with alcohol in the background. Very nice. mjjmhays (12) - - JUL 23, 2017
The Unidragon promised a deep, imperial stout taste and it delivered! Delicious beer!

Black as a hole. High cocoa chocolate smell. Full bodied like a rich espresso - a huge beer. This beer will amaze you.
