Bottle. 2009 Vintage; BBE date Dec 2012; Drank Jan 2011 - Opaque Black in colour. Very Malty; roasted/burnt malts, liquorice, espresso coffee, soy sauce, some chocolate, toffee. Rather tarry and salty. Fruity; dried fruits. Hoppy; earthy and spicy hop. Alcohol quite noticeable. Roast liquorice and coffee malty with a pronounced hop bitterness. Dry bitter finish. Very tasty. Liked this a lot. Nice Imperial Stout! (2011-01-29)

Wojo21 (314) - Pelplin, POLAND - JAN 7, 2017
W aromacie kawa, czekolada, intensywnie i bardzo przyjemnie. Barwa ciemno brunatna, prawie czarna, ładna drobnopęcherzykowa, beżowa piana. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie tylko jeszcze bardziej intensywnie, bardzo bogato. Goryczka konkretna, dobry ris.

darbeer75 (855) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2016
Aroma: lots of malt; not much else; Appearance: pitch black with thin off white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: much better than aroma; smooth, chocolatey, boozy, rich; lots of complexity; Palate: heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: very nice russian stout; would definitely get again if wanting dessert.

mandaritto (244) - LATVIA - DEC 14, 2016
(Arendsnest, Amsterdam 29.10.2016) A bit dissapointed. Kind a boring brew, Some roastiness of malts, strong coffee, but kind a dryish-watery aftertaste. Quite unballanced, but not so bad..

mR_fr0g (11574) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2016
Bottle picked up from the brewery in 2013. A jet black coloured pour with a lasting dark tan head. Aroma is initially punch roasted barley, black malts, figgy pudding, booze soaked fruit, sherry, cakey malts. Palate is oily, thick and chewy with lowish carbonation. Flavour is rounded, smooth rich roast, earthy, toffee, boozy fruit cake, little age, Finish hold a little wood / sherry cask note. Solid stuff.

Heerlijk aroma, gedroogd fruit met chocolade. In de smaak opnieuw dit gedroogd fruit: rozijnen, druiven. Mooie afdronk, met gepaste bittere chocolade een iets van brandy/cognac. Top.

JPDIPSO (6171) - Wauwatosa, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Near black beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted malt and light notes of burnt malt and coffee. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of soy sauce and roasted malt, leading to a dry finish where notes of coffee and a bit of chocolate lingers. Pleasant. Sweet, with little alcohol showing. 10/11
