Butelka 0,355l. Aromat z butelki bardzo przyjemny, gorzka czekolada, kawa, wiśnie. Po przelaniu do szkła tworzy się bujna czapa drobnoziarnistej piany. Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Ze szkła więcej nut palonych i kawy, nadal dużo czekolady. W smaku dość wytrawne, sporo kawy i nut palonych. Goryczka umiarkowana, dośc mocne ściąganie, pewnie od palonych słodw. Rozgrzewanie w przełyku, alkohol wyczuwalny retronosowo.

Poured into a pint ale glass at 45 degrees. Appearance very dark nice 1/2 inch head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruits , and raisin. Taste initially slight hop with alcohol but finishes well with toasted barley, coffee, and slight hint of dark chocolate. On okay imperial stout for the money, probably not in the same league as some of the higher priced barrel aged imperial stouts. A good value product.

While I rate this just shy of PERFECT, it is for me the Gold Standard for Russian Imperial Stouts. Deep and robust flavor with a great balance of chocolate and coffee, strong ABV without getting to boozy. Pours beautifully on Nitro wherever you can find it on tap--beautiful black color and thin creamy head when poured and stored correctly. Cellars magnificently, the barrel aged bottles are simply a must for any serious beer lover!

sample/bottle. czarne, coca-cola, duża czapka brązowej piany. aromat wiśnie w alkoholu, piernik, słodka czekolada. w smaku wyraźna goryczka od chmielu? szybko znika z podniebienia, całkiem wysokie nasycenie, nieznaczny rozpuszczalnik, alkohol po ogrzaniu szczypie w nos

BenOver (286) - SLOVENIA - NOV 4, 2016
Poura black, medium but yet very prolonged head. Off white colour. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and some hops. Taste is gull bodied, oily and very sweet upfront, evolving in to a slightly bitter f8n8sh after. An excellent ruasian imperial stout!
