I had this on draft at the Thirsty Bear brewpub.
hmm, an Irish Stout w/ a Russian name...
I thought it was thin and a bit weak.

~Pours black with diminishing brown head.
~Scent of roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate.
~Chocolate, dark fruits, and roasted malt in flavor.
~Very thin feel. Pretty disappointing, Body is way too thin. Good finish.
~Decent stout, but water like.

Decent stout. Nothing special but a good representation. Toasty and chocolate. Creamy. PilsnerPeter (3050) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 14, 2009
Tap at the brewpub: A tan bubbly head tops a deep brown with ruby at the edges. Mild roast in the aroma with cocoa flakes. Thin yet rounded feel. The flavor has a nutty roast to it but there’s apparent diacetyl. The roasted finish is mainly composed of medium huskiness. Eh. anders37 (26999) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2009
