Jet black with tan head. Coffee, dark chocolate and toasted malt aromas dominate this. Medium coffee bitterness and light chocolate/malt sweetness balance out well in here. A very nice, bold flavor. Really enjoyable and easily worth trying again

473 ml can. Black, with a dense brown head. Roasted malty aroma with chocolate and notes of dark fruits. The flavour is roasted malty,with coffee, licorice and cocoa, fruity notes, and a roasted, slightly smoky finish. Tasty.

Canned. The aroma is raisins, the flavours are raising, prunes, like a proper Russian stout.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4971) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 1, 2016
Deep black with a light beige head. This can poured out a luscious looking beer with a rich umami, celery salt, salt and dark chocolate aroma. The taste is rich dark cacao, salty, a touch acrid and nutty chalk. Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cadeau dun collgue de travail. Merci beaucoup! Apparence : Coule brune rougetre, noire dans le verre, bon col brun ar et ptillant, effervescence semble leve et moyennement rapide. Dentelle acceptable. Nez : Grains grills avec des notes brles/cres, lger chocolat amer et lger vanille. Plus on la laisse reposer, plus le chocolat au lait vanill fait surface plutt que les grains rtis. Intensit moyenne. G : Chocolat mi-amer, sucre rsiduel, finale dans laquelle lamertume joue de la partie avec le sucre et pourquoi pas une pointe dacidit avec a. Bonne intensit, mais le sucre est llment qui prend le plus de place et donne un effet moyennement agrable. Sensation : Effervescence faible, crmeuse, corps moyen dense, longue finale sur le sucre artificielle, des notes amres et un peu acides des grains rtis. Bref : Bire correcte, sans plus (ce qui est faible pour une Imperial Stout). Rien de spcial, pas ncessairement quilibre; le sucre prend trop de place et lintgration des saveurs nest pas convaincante. a ne donne pas un rsultat exceptionnel.

bumpgrrl (1) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2016 does not count
One of my all time favourite stouts.Rich, dark, coffee and an almost chocolate flavour. Crazily full-bodied with a long finish. One of my "chewy" standards.

16 oz can. Pours black with a tan head. Some dark fruit, molasses aroma with a touch of smoke. Cocoa flavor, roasty. Decent, though not that exciting.
