16oz bottle. Dark brown with little to no head. Mild smoke, coffee, roasted malts. Semi-thin mouthfeel with roasted malts and a hint of chocolate and some fruity notes to it. A little miscast as a dry stout.

Pours s very dark brown with a smallish light tan head. Aroma is lightly sweet roasted malt and a hint of chocolate. Flavor has a sweet grain quality, coffee and bitter chocolate. Finishes somewhat long and bitter. Medium bodied, thin texture.

Decent beverage. Fairly creamy, has some of the overtly grainy aspects that I associate with spent grain and the midwest. This, however, is balanced with a nice mild roasting and not too much sweetness. Overall, I’m happy with this, though it definitely could fall more on the dry side of stouts in general.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Sampled on tap at the sprecher tour (glendale, wi). Pours a deep dark blackish hue with brown notes and small cinnamon head. Aromas are light on the nose, light dry soda bread, darker malts, and a hint of chocolate. Body is thinner than expected, light notes of darker malts, chocolate, light cream, and vague dry soda bread. Finishes with minimal sweetness and a nice palate stick. Ok.

A little smokier than the Russian version, still a little more watery than I had hoped, but the flavor profile is fantastic. Dark dark dark.

Had at the brewpub after a tour of the place. Not a bad beer - typical profile and tasty enough.

16oz. bottle to pint glass. Pours black with small beige head that laces well. I get malt and a little coffee. taste is sweet with bread, malt, chocolate and coffee with a coffee-like bitter finish that has a dry aftertaste. Fairly creamy with balance carbonation. Pretty solid stout.

A deep dark stout with a thin mocha head. In aroma, nice smooth chocolate, milky, light coffee notes. In mouth, a nice smooth chocolate, with light acidic points, light coffee, not bad. Bottle at Istmus Beer and Cheese Fest, Jan 21 2012.

dwm1034 (786) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Sampler as part of flight at Lake Geneva Sprechers. Pours thin black with thin head. A little thin for a stout...nose of coffee and chocolate...initial flavor is similar with a slight hoppy bitterness...good but not great...drinkable.
