Got this botlle form rvdoorn as a special delivery. He found it at Berts Bierhuis in Utrecht.
A: Poured it into my Urthel glass and it looked viscous. A deep dark brown color near to black. Didn't observe any head at all.
S: First things that comes to mind is liquorice. After that coffee, cacao and roasted malts, some faint fruit smell.
T: Coffee, cacao, liquorice, sweet dried fruits, hints of apple/pear. Malts and a slight alcohol taste. A ligth bitter, spicy aftertaste.
M: CREAMY!!!! PLeasant, but there's no carbonation at all. The spicy aftertaste is masking this problem a little bit.
D: What a great Dutch beer this is. Too bad that there's no carbonation, that would have made it even greater for me. Buy again, again and again....

appearance - As black as black can be with dark brown edges. Had a semi medium aggressive pour which surprisingly resulted in zero head.
smell - dark chocolate is the most prominent thing that comes to mind
taste - Major coffee and chocolate hints to be found. Somewhat nutty. Not much boozyness to be found here.
mouthfeel - Medium thickness. Not quite as thick as I like my imperial stouts to be. Practically no carbonation.
overall - I'm in the netherlands for a month due to a work project, so obviously I immediately searched out the solid offerings this country has. Turns out Europe does not have the infatuation with stouts like we do here in America. Overall though, this is a pretty solid russian imperial stout that has managed to soothe my needs for a European stout.
