HopRedHead (397) - Perth, - MAY 1, 2013
Tap at Mane Liquor. Keg aged for a year. Pours pitch black with a creamy tan head. Nose is coffee and soy, touch of chocolate powder. Taste is sweet with a little bitterness, lots of coffee and a bit of soy. Body was lighter than I expected, a bit watery compared to other imperial stouts Ive had in the past. Nice stout.

Pours black. Big Brown head. Aroma is rich cocoa espresso. Rich cocoa chocolate coffee fading to smoky dark fruit and then to a bitter coffee finish that lingers. Medium to heavy somewhat carbonated mouthfeel.

I have been drinking this beer for years, but have just now sat down to assess it once again. A tan head that quickly dissapates to lacey. Pitch black hue. Mouthfeel is smooth with a light carbonation followed by a front pallet malt bitterness that ends with a bit of licorice bitterness/bite. Finish continues with a roasted malt and slight espresso taste.

Scipio (852) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2016
I cant believe that I havent rated this yet. Pours black with a full, long lasting, dark tan head. The aroma contains coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, mild vanilla, and smoke. The taste is bitter and dry. There is an excellent balance of coffee, chocolate, and smokiness. These are complimented with roasted malts, caramel, and hints of raisin and vanilla. A lingering aftertaste is a roasted chocolate flavor. Its full bodied, with a thick, creamy texture, and has softer carbonation. From a style that I really enjoy, this is one of my favorites.

popiela (634) - Pozna, POLAND - NOV 30, 2016
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
