Один из лучших имперск& стаутов& DSG (15119) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at Naama’s place. Black with a nice tan head. Aroma of roast, malt, some smokiness, slightly meaty, a fruity hint and coffee note. Sweetish flavor with caramel, roast, smokiness, a bit of coffee, a nutty note and a bitter finish. Medium to full-bodied. Nice.

This stout is more balanced that "Kozhedub" to my opinion, but still cannot be rated as De molens beers eg mansquito (6815) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Piligrim, Moscow 50cl: Pours black with light brown head. Aroma is booze and booze and booze. Taste is chocolate with a milky and sugary. Not too sweet considering. Alcohol is well covered considering. Not too bad. Aroma is pretty off putting though. FatPhil (16953) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 8, 2015
UPDATED: APR 6, 2015 500ml bottle - thanks Elvira! (4:4:5:2:9=2.4) possibly 2nd batchdgj (30) - Moscow, RUSSIA - FEB 3, 2015
Wohhhh! Total booze aroma. Some nice roasty components, but there’s fried mushrooms and a bit of fried sausage. Very very oily. A bit of a fry-up in a glass. Black, hige tight persistent head. Sweet slick palate, almost slimy. Very sweet taste, unsophisticated and heavy roast, and quite rough. Heady and heavy, hottish, but only at the 10% level, not quite hitting 12% for me. Later, I even get fried kidneys in the aroma. Stodgy, and not so good, whilst not being actually bad. IS overdone.
Rerate: 500ml bottle - shared by Elvira - thanks! (6:4:7-:4:14=3.5-) Bottled on 2014-11, alleged first batch.
Very savoury aroma, soy and bouillion. Black, large tight head. Almost light in the mouth. Of course it’s incredibly full, but it’s so not saying 12% (note, some other .ru breweries have been "flexible" with their ABV values, so not necessarily to be trusted). Dark chocolatey roast, pleasantly sweet esters too. Finish bitter, not just from burnt grains, but from absolute tonnes of bittering hops. Complete turn-around from the previous one. Glad to taste it probably how the brewer intended. Averaging the ratings, hope to see it again like this.
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2015 Perfect Russian Imperial Stout, a little smoked aroma, powerfull body,high gravity and high alcohol Rammer (397) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 29, 2015
Well, in flavor prunes, a little resin coffee. The taste is pleasant, not too heavy, a little oak, by the end of the glass sticks alcohol. Good overall
