Initial pour seems somewhat undercarbonated, yet very dark reddish brown body gives rise to a finger of tan head.
Roasted malt features pronounced chocolate and subdued coffee aroma while malt exhibits bready character and unrefined sugar sweetness. Dark fruit esters are noticeable whilst alcohol -although clearly present - remains unobtrusive.
Flavor mostly follows the aroma: cocoa,chocolate and coffee-like qualities of roasted malt blend with sweet malt and dark fruits (rum-raisins and cherries) while warming alcohol provides some balance to the maltage. Aftertaste exhibits mild roastiness and pleasant alcohol warmth.
Thick, chewy body with low carbonation is sufficiently attenuated to avoid being syrupy.
In short, a massive, sweet chocolaty Imperial Stout with warming alcohol (330 ml, bottled 02-29-2012,into tulip).

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.
