Deze Russian imperial stout is wat eentonig. Mooie donkere kleur met beige schuimlaag. Smaak: lichte koffie en chocolade. Geen echte zoete laag. Er zit weinig diepte in de smaak, noch in het aroma.

DijkBier (243) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2016
Very dark brown pour with creme head. Both aroma and taste of roasted malts and clear chocolate, but later on also some chemical tone (phenol?) in the nose. Easy drinkable, bit low on the bitterness. Doesnt develop very much, although slight licorice in the aftertaste.

Donker bruin met onderin tegen het licht een donker rode tint. Crmekleurige schuimkraag, deze blijft vrij lang en is in begin redelijk vol.... fijn van structuur. Aroma: Karamel, chocolade, geroosterde mouten en bij opwarming komt er voornamelijk veel mout naar voren... beetje broodachtig met wat vanille. Ergens in de verte nog wat donker fruit in de aroma. Smaak: Donker chocolade, koffie, geroosterde mout, iets kruidig en lichtelijk zoet. In de afdronk een redelijke bitter en wat alcohol warmte. CO2 is medium, body is medium voor een RIS, mondgevoel is romig en zacht. Iets zoet en plakkerig in de afdronk. Lang niet slecht.... voor een RIS erg zacht en subtiel..... erg toegankelijk.

sarauckelman (461) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2016
On tap at Bierfestival Groningen 16. Dark with not much head, very little aroma. Milky flavor and thin palate. Better as it warmed; not as sharply milky, more grassy. It wasnt bad, but I was unsure if I liked it.

1/25/2009 5:30:43 AM Bottle at Arendsnest. Brown body, tan head. Malty and coffee nose. Lots of flavours, including caramel, malts, some chocolate and bitterness. Warming mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Alengrin (4821) - BELGIUM - JAN 22, 2016
Bottle from a Deen supermarket in Holland. Medium thick, cobweb-lacing, pale greyish white head retaining quite well over a very dark, initially clear but eventually hazy, burgundy coloured beer with ruby hue, blackish but still fully transparent under bright light - not what Id expect from an impy. Aroma of fresh blackcurrant, lots of caramel candy and butterscotch, liquorish, milk chocolate, banana (gaining strength as it warms up), raisins, candied fig, kahlua, ruby port, some shoe polish-like phenols, dead garden weeds, roasted hazelnuts, toasted brown bread, pear syrup and a vague presence of cooked, brown-sugared red cabbage. Sweetish and sourish onset of fig, pear, raisin and blackberry, very Belgian in its esteriness and much more announcing a dubbel or a quad than an impy, medium carbo (a tad too sharp for the style), no umami worth mentioning, (too) supple and smooth, caramelly and lightly nutty maltiness with a toasted edge, bit oily, no true roasted bitterness but still bitterness from spicy, leafy hops in the end combined with the toasted malts, as well as a certain wodka-like alcohol astringency, though showing up late enough not to become much more than deeply warming. Very malty and more or less enjoyable beer for sure, but by no means an imperial stout: this is, in terms of looks, (Belgian yeast) aroma and flavour much closer to a (average) quadrupel. Not bad per se, but utterly failing in trying to be a RIS, that much is clear. A shame in that respect, considering the high quality of their barley wine, for example.

schavuitje (150) - APELDOORN, NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2016
Imperial stout ; ik vind het meer een porter met zon rooksmaak of cacaonibbel smaaktonen. Een best aardige biertje
