Bottle at Amundsen. Pours black with a tiny light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and dried fruits. Quite sweet and fruity with a light bitterness. Some taste of alcohol, but not disturbing. Slightly dry finish, but all in all a litte too sweet for my taste.

[ASPETTO] nera, impenetrabile [SCHIUMA] color nocciola, fine, media presenza, buona persistenza e ottimo lacing [OLFATTO] buona intensità: malti torrefatti, con sentori di caffè , cioccolato amaro, liquirizia; note alcoliche liquorose [GUSTO] intensa, malti consistenti, con note dolci che sostengono bene il peso inesorabile di amaricanti torrefatti decisi, che forniscono sapori di caffè, cioccolato fondente con una punta astringente, vaniglia e un colpo di coda di liquirizia. Sul finale entrano prepotenti anche le note alcoliche, che infondono note balsamiche e liquorose. retrogusto duraturo, con un ruvido amaro che rimane a lungo nella gola. [TEXTURE] corpo medio alto, densa e consistente al palato, bassa carbonazione ; percezione alcolica evidente [COMMENTO FINALE] buona, consistente ed impattante come ci si aspetta da una (russian) imperial stout. I gradi ci sono tutti, non si nascondono e lasciano un finale caldo, speziato, liquoroso. Complice un corpo oleoso e una varietà di sfumature che comunque girano attorno ad un contrasto dolce - amaro ben gestito. un bel pezzo di cioccolato, una camino acceso mentre fuori nevica, un coppa di emelisse e si va dritti nel mondo dei sogni: piccoli piaceri della vita. prima scoperta della marca.. a seguire altre della medesima.

Bottle from bierzwerg.de web shop. Black color with no head. Aroma of raisins, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee. Taste, licorice, prunes, chocolate, coffee, alcohol. Strong alcoholic bitter finish. Nice, I think, I’d grab some for aging.

33cl bottle at Appelation Wines, thanks Ash. Pours dark brown/black and opaque. The nose has an earthy feel, but some slight hops as well. The taste has malt, burnt chocolate and alcohol. Big palate, but the alcohol is too dominant. Overall a bit too alcohol focused.

Bottle at home. Pours jet-black with decent, foamy tan head. Coffee, raisiny nose with a touch of chocolate and vanilla. Complex sweetness up front, almondy-honey sort of thing, but with a really quite bitter finish, all liquorice and espresso. I really like this one, I have to say.

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 9, 2012
Bottle at home from my Maudite glass. Thanks Phil!!! Pours opaque viscous black, a very thick pour, carbonation is extremely soft. Thin tan head, little lacing. Nose is dense, with dark fruit, plug tobacco, figs and chocolate fudge. Also a not-insignificant whiff of booze, which is rather to be expected at 11%... Carbonation is indeed soft as I expected, but the mouthfeel is somewhere between syrupy and velvety, just a crushingly heavy stout... Flavours are definitely in the vinous/dark berry realm, with plenty of fig and tobacco, then an oily slug made of cocoa nibs goes and rolls over the whole thing. Very slick in the finish, with tart berry and tobacco/cedar predominant, and just a kiss of spicy hops. Very berryish, very dry, very good.
