COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like a Russian Matryoshka or ‘nesting’ doll, the secret of Dosvidanya® Russian Imperial Stout lies locked deep within her dark, mysterious and elaborate wooden layers. The hidden soul of this oak rye whiskey barrel-aged beer that we said Dosvidanya (goodbye) to several months before revealing, is its rich, robust and roasty maltiness that finshes dry with pleasant spiciness from the barrel.

tennisjoel (1507) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2018
Pours like a chocolate milk shake. Dark brown with a dark tan head. Heavy bourbon, but man this is a smooth palate. Alcohol is not harsh at all. Really good and impressive use of the bourbon barrel. Perhaps the rye smoothens ot out even more.

deyholla (12663) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 6, 2018
Bottle. Pours near black with a light brown head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has sweet dark grains and roasted malts with a bit of rye and a bit of soy sauce underlying. Flavor has dark grains and rye whiskey with a bit of bitter roasted malts supporting.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2018 500ml bottle shared by Yanif, thanks! Dark pour. Aroma is dry rye whiskey mostly. Taste follows, didn't like this as much as the bourbon barrel.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2018 Bottle shared by Yaniv - thanks! Dark dense pour with a small dense head. Wood, some booze warmth, and some rye character. Delicious.

December 30, 2017 - bottle via Evan as an extra in our trade today. Very dark pour with some head. Aroma was very strong - sweet malt, wood and rye whiskey. The taste was powerful as well with a heavy dose of the spicy heat from the rye whiskey. Quite a bit of wood and sweetness, but hard to appreciate as this was hot from start to finish. 2017 vintage, wish I let this sit for a couple years.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2017 On draught. Pours black, with a minimal head. Nose is rye whiskey, amd taste is typical stout with a nice note of rye on the finish. Nice.

Pours midnight black with tan head that lingers. Pungent roast oaky scent with some chocolate. Taste of whiskey, dark malt, cocoa, and dark fruit. Full body. Mildly bitter aftertaste. Alcohol is present near the end but not overpowering.

4.2
MetalNHopHead (2306) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - APR 13, 2017
Destihl’s Rye Barrel variant of Dosvidanya is an intense yet carefully balanced brew. Pitch black pour with a slow-forming but creamy tan head. Dark chocolate, coffee, and roasted grain aromas. So many of the barrel-aged Stouts on the market rely almost entirely on the barrel for the flavor influence, but Dosvidanya wisely showcases it as just as element. Chocolate, coffee, grass, tobacco, and just a bit of rye whiskey character. It’s a thick, rich beer but there’s a lot of bitterness coming through. Destihl has made some nice attempts with Imperial Stouts previously, but they really seem to be coming into their own with this series.
