Dark brown with fine tan head. First whiff of the aroma was red wine, but it quickly almost disappears and the aroma becomes malty sweet, chocolate. Taste is sweet, soft, caramel, butter, a little liquorice. Nice brew, but a little to sweet for my liking. Would categorize it as an imperial stout.

Bottle received in trade with tricksta_p, cheers! Pours dark brown with an average sized lasting off-white head. Aroma of malt, roasting, liquorice, chocolate, vanilla and caramel. Milky chocolate medium sweetness, moderate roasted bitterness. Medium to light body, slight oily texture, soft carbonation.

33cl bottle at home. Appearance: black with medium, beige head. Aroma: blue grapes / grape juice, fruits, bread, metal, fruits, some tartness and dark malts. Taste: pretty high sweetness and medium bitterness. Notes of grapes, plums, light coffee. Palate: medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. Easily drinkable. I miss the roasted character and heavy bitterness.

Bottle. Dark brown, almost black. Very malty (roast/burnt malts, toffee, burnt sugar, chocolate, hint of coffee). Fruity (dark fruits, berries). Spicy and yeasty. Sweet throughout. Alcohol quite noticeable. Drying roast malty finish. More Belgian than Imperial? (2008)

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.

Bottle... Nice taste, coffee-chocolatesk, round, light bitter, nice aftertaste.

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. Doesn’t develop very much, although slight licorice in the aftertaste.

Bottle @ the guild... small off-white head... opage dark brown (coke-like)... smell malts yeast chocolate hops... taste hops some sweetness.

Donker bruin met onderin tegen het licht een donker rode tint. Crèmekleurige 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.

33cl flesje via Mitra Alcoholpercentage van 8,5% Uitgeschonken in Grimbergen glas Uiterlijk: zwart met mooie volle cremekleurige schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: chocolade, koffie, gebrande mouten, bitterzoet, caramel Conclusie: lekkere stout, gladjes ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 wasn’t bad, but I was unsure if I liked it.
