Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine April 2007.
Siberian Night has grabbed a few medals from the GABF--two bronzes in 2003 and 2006, plus a gold in 2005--and the attention of beer geeks over the years as well.
A solid two fingers of brown foam subside to a ring of lace; the color is so dark that absolutely no light shall pass through this beer. Commingled roasted grain and a soft blackberry fruitiness, with a touch of malt sweetness; very aromatic. Full, malty body with a mild crispness and a growing smoothness. Velvety malt sweetness is like a fine dark chocolate. Dark-berry fruitiness complements the creamy chocolate flavor, and the roasted finish has a coffee tone. Thin caramel in the middle. The hops stand small when put up against the malt.
Not bad at all. This one may be lacking in boldness, but without a doubt it's one of the most drinkable Imperial Stouts on the market right now. You're better off pairing to complement, take our word for it. Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate, the darker the better.
