COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Having downed his forth Imperial Stout of the day, the wild eyed charlatan from Voldvostogniaky belched and hollered for the Czarina to enter his chamber and bend herself to his will. The economy was a wreck and revolt was just around the corner. Nicky the Czar dude was off playing soldier like any pale nobleman with a hemorrhagic skin condition would. Such were the final days of the old empire. Reactionary, decadent, sputnik, stroganoff, weird, and drunk. But even as the proletariat countryside labored under inhuman conditions and a threat of being sent to a futile war in the east, they wisely took the time to slam back an Imperial Stout or two. After all, life can be a real "suka", as they say in the old country. Big, black, bourgeois, bolshoy, belligerent, buxom, and scary - this is our version of the chaotic end of an era in a bottle.

Bomber pours a very dark brown with lasting tan head and good lacing. Nose is full of roasted malts and hops. Aroma is not as hoppy as I first thought it would be, but has dark chocolate, toast, molasses, and coffee. Taste is slightly salty at first, then sweet, and finally a little drier and hotter in the finish. Alcohol is fairly well hidden. Body is medium plus. without very much carbonation. Overall, this is a very good, somewhat unusual Imperial stout, which I think has 80% of the delights of the best ones at less than half of their price.

This is... well, not good! Sort of like a poor man's imperial! Flavor profile is all over the place! Vegetables and fuel! with some decent roast in there. No sir, not for me. At least the quality corresponded to the price! 22oz bomber around $5

Flaska Ishikaya. Doft av russin o lakrits. Lakrits o läder med rejäl havskänsla. Eftersmaken mycket fin beska med sälta. De döljer alkoholen otroligt bra. God stout till desserter.

shanoknowsfood (100) - Hawaii, USA - AUG 5, 2017
22oz. bottle @ Whole Foods. Dark brown appearance. HUGE head that slowly dissipates. Rich, roasty aroma. Taste of roast, dark chocolate, dark fruits, nuts. A bit bitter on the tongue. Alcohol present on the back end, with a slight burn on the throat. Had it with some amazing English cheddar...which was heaven! Coffee flavor present but not overwhelming. Overall a well balanced Stout. Highly recommended...(though was hoping to share with with a friend who never showed, as 22 ounces of 10% abv is way too much for me! i nearly spewed later ;p).

Czarny z ladna piana, jest tu wszystkiego po trochu i bardzo dobrze ale niestety brakuje mu intensywnosci w jakimkolwiek aspekcie. Dobrze ulozony, fajne cialo i dosc pijalne ale nic poza tym.

A black beer, a head is big and brown. Aroma has coffee and roastiness, liquirice, saltyness, some dried fruitness. Taste has richness of malts, salt liquirice, roastiness, some salt and fruitness. Quite sweet but still balanced, some bitterness in the end. Full bodied, smooth and enjoyable to drink. Balanced and high-quality beer.

Rami Rami is drinking an Imperial Stout by Lagunitas Brewing Company at Chmielarnia Marszałkowska Mocno zbozowy, reszta taka tradycyjna, czeko-kawa, spoko cialo, disc wytrawny, ryli niezly, ale zarazem bez szalu.
