KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAY 1, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a murky pitch black with a large (2-3 finger) rocky light brown head that lasted throughout and had excellent streaky lacing. The aroma was definitely intense with a strong dark roasted bread malt and a mildly sweet leathery yeast that had notes of dark chocolate, dark roasted coffee, and a mild caramel sweetness with just a hint of alcohol. It tasted fantastic to say the least, it started with a mild sweetness that had hints of caramel and coffee, then progressed into a bitter-sweet coffee flavor with the finish having a strong presence of dark chocolate. The flavor was left lingering for a nice long time after the swallow letting everything meld together and settle in rather nicely on the palate. Mouthfeel was tremendously full in body and very creamy in texture, yet slightly watery at the end with a moderately soft carbonation. Overall a superior Imperial Stout that left the flavor lying on the taste buds for a decent duration, allowing a full enjoyment of all the components of this extremely tasty brew.

Ekstrakt: 25% wag.
IBU: 58
Kolor: Czarny jak syberyjska noc. Nie widać nic pod spodem.
Piana: Ładna, jasnobeżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, łamiąca się do średnich pęcherzy. Redukuje się do dwucentymetrowej kołderki. Po zakręceniu szkłem od razu opada w dół.
Zapach: Rewelacyjny aromat! Słodki, czekoladowy tort, pralinki belgijskie, andrut z masą kakaową. Kolejną warstwę stanowią orzechy migdałowe i nutella z orzechami. Olbrzymi wpływ na profil zapachowy mają także sugestie kawy z mlekiem. Całość okraszona jest nieprzesadną palonością.
Smak: W smaku bardzo kawowe, w kierunku słodkiej kawy cappuccino, czy caffè latte. Dodatkowo intensywnie czekoladowe. Cała masa skojarzeń z tortem czekoladowym, bombonierką, pralinkami belgijskimi. Duża doza kakao i kruchych wafelków kakaowych. Orzechy migdałowe w kontrze i lekki karmel. Słodycz równoważy stonowana paloność. Goryczka średniej siły, finisz półsłodki, czekoladowo-orzechowy. Tekstura raczej umiarkowana, niż oleista. Odczucie w ustach pełne, ale zarazem niesamowita lekkość degustacji. 9,5% alkoholu, a pije piwo łyk za łykiem, praktycznie bez dłuższych przerw. Wysycenie ciut za wysokie. Niskie do średniego. Cholernie smaczne!
Wysycenie: Niskie / Średnie.
Etykieta: Rewelacyjna! Te oczy wilka na czarnym tle - coś pięknego! Piwo intryguje już od pierwszego kontaktu z etykietą.
Podsumowanie:
Moje pierwsze piwo z browaru Thirsty Dog Brewing Co. z Akron w stanie Ohio. Nie muszę wspominać, że to miasto rodzinne mojego ulubionego gracza NBA - LeBron James ;-)) Jak okazuje się nie tylko Hoppin’ Frog Brewery z tego samego miasta Akron potrafi warzyć genialne piwa. Siberian Night okazał się RIS-em kompleksowym, bardzo bogatym o pełnym ciele, kremowym z ogromną czekoladowo-orzechowo-kawowo-paloną bazą. Piwo cudownie wpisuje się w styl Imperial Stout. To była niezwykle udana degustacja.

Very chocolatey malt smells. Pours black brown with a thin tan head. Some lacing. Sweet tastes of coffee with some alcohol in the short finish. Pretty good but not the best Imperial I’ve had.

Apperance: Dark, inpenetrable brown (almost black) body with a thick, gorgeous, cascading head. Smell: A bit shy at first, but an aroma of chocolate with a whiff of brown sugar. Taste: Wow, very silky and smooth, unabrassive. Malty with a touch of bitterness and some toffee in there. Mouthfeel: Roasted tones with caramel. Smoothness prevails, great balance. There’s some coffee in there minus the coarseness.

BeerdedDave (1703) - Beckley, USA - FEB 6, 2017
black; very nice, chocolaty, roasted malt aroma; great roasted malt flavor with chocolate notes and hints of coffee; really smooth for such a high gravity beer; bitter chocolate in the finish

Bottle in Seattle. Rainy night tasting. Huge thanks to Chris for sending these to me awhile ago. Tasted side by side with the Bourbon version. Thin foam, dark red-brown edge, letting some light through. Deep chalky, bitter chocolate aroma. Lightest edge of sweetness. Smooth sip, bitter coffee and bitter chocolate. Roast malts, dry and toasty. There is a sweet element but it is dominantly bitter and roast. A little thin at times. But body is lovely crushed, freshly roasted coffee beans. Quite nice and a modestly unique modern imperial stout (that harkens back to older times). I really like it.

SinH4 (4759) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2017
Bottle, thanks luttonm! Dark brown color with small tan head. Aroma is ashes, coffee, earthy, roasted malts, liquorice. Taste is the same flavours, but quite heavy on the liquorice. Dry and bitter roasted finish. Still full-bodied. Very well-made, though I’m not the biggest fan of liquorice in beers.

unclefrito62 (276) - Stow, Ohio, USA - JAN 16, 2017
10 ounce draft at Winking Lizard Pennisula, Ohio. Smell the chocolate, sweet coffee, and plum. Lightly carbonated. smooth on the palate. Overall just a wonderful Stout.

ffaoe (790) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - JAN 11, 2017
malty, chocolately aromas. pitch black in color with decent brown head. fully body. taste is mostly of roasted barley and coffee, dark chocolate plays a lesser role in flavor.
