) This beer has an aroma infused with the fragrances of malt, oak, anise, and smoke. It is a black solution with a thick brown head and great lacing. This rich smooth beer offers the palate a plethora of flavors: malt, chocolate, anise, a nutty/biscuit flavor, and smoke. The smoke taste appears briefly in the finish and then later in the aftertaste. A nutty chocolate/coffee taste follows the brief intro of smoke in the finish.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2010 Bottle, 12 fl Oz: Pours with a dark brown/ black colour and a little tan head. Nice lacing on the glass. It has a very Fine aroma of roasted malt and dried fruit. The flavour is of coffee and dark chocolate. Full bodied with a oily texture. Strong bitter finish. JB99 (27) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2006
I like this rather heavy beer and it’s therefore highly recommended.
A nice toffee aroma with a slight hop to the nose. A little to much alcohol taste for myself but with that much I guess thats waht you get. Not my favorite Imperial Stout. olek (26) - København N, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2006
Pours a deep dark color with a nice head. Aroma is very malty and friuty with hints of raisins and roasted coffee. An excellent beer for a cold evening, with a good hoppy bitterness to the aftertaste as well onystrom (1334) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2006
Beautiful dark reddish color with great head. Fantastisk powerful aroma. Which so much alcohol it is a very strong tasting beer. It’s very hoppy and bitter burnt. Far too strong!

One of the great ones. Dark robust flavor. One that will mess you up on a empty stomach. That’s good stuff for me. Aroma doesn’t smell anything of fruit, but more to a maple walnut to me. PhrankSlovacek (54) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Deep dark brown pour with tall brown head. Raisin, fig, fruit aroma. Roasted malty flavor, light fruit, and a creamy, slightly bitter aftertaste. Impressive.......most impressive. JugOPunch (83) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 3, 2006
bottle: Given this beers rep. I was expecting a great deal. I was slightly disappointed. The pour was as expected, dark bleak black with a small thin head that quickly escapes. A nice resinous aroma with the darker fruits and malts all alone. But then the boom of hops and bitter comes crashing through in the taste. My hopes were let down in the lack of balance in the hop character. It’s not totally off the mark but was somewhat knagging especially in the finish. A good imperial stout but not a bullseye. bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Pours black with a smallish tan head.Aroma is a delightful blend of malt and raisin. Flavors are roasted malt with a definte hops presence. The alcohol is completely hidden by the other flavors. Finish is bitter, but not unpleasant. A very good Imperial, and a relative bargain. treadyroc (163) - St. Leonard, Maryland, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Very dark, almost chocolatey brown in appearance. This Russian Imperial stout does the genre proud by being stong, smooth & hoppy. The hop after-taste is strong, but not un-pleasantly so, & the overall flavor is very dark & almost sweet.
