330ml bottle into snifter. best before dec. 17, 2014. enjoyed late night on july 5, 2014

a: not actually pitch black as i would have expected. more like an opaque, deep chestnut brown with lots of floating particles. almost like a belgian dark ale. topped with a finger of quickly-dissipating khaki-coloured head. interesting

s: a very potent assault of prunes, raisins, cherries, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and licorice

t: prunes, plums, raisins, slight cherries and licorice up front, but with a surprisingly restrained sweetness. this quickly turns into flavours of smoky dark malts, dark chocolate, and fresh roasted coffee. lingering roasty flavours all the way to the end. finishes with a dry, cocoa nib-like bitterness

m: creamy medium mouthfeel, mild carbonation

o: a beer with strong and tasty flavours all around. i want another one

4.05/5  rDev +1.5%

A: Black, mostly opaque, a little ruby tinge when held to the light, 3 fingers of tan head and nice random lacing.

S: Chocolate, licorice, cherries, pear, hazelnuts, nuttiness, walnuts, dark toasted notes, a little wood smoke.

T: Licorice, dark chocolate, cherries and pears, walnuts. Slightly bitter aftertaste.

M: Thick bready and syrupy body with medium low carbonation and a smooth finish.

O: A good Russian Imperial Stout from Sweden, and a cool bottle to boot with the bear paw. Interesting nuttiness for this style.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color ale with a nice dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light roasted malt with some black chocolate notes is quite pleasant. Taste is also dominated by some roasted malt with light dry coffee notes and some black chocolate notes. Body is quite full with nice creamy texture and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Easily drinkable for the style with just enough complexity to be interesting.

Purchased at the LCBO for $3.30 for a 330ml bottle. Served at 10deg C in pint glass

A- Pretty good. Opened well. Poured with a TON of head for a stout

S- Pretty good. Caramel, roasted malt and chocolate.

T- Not too bad. Nothing to wait on

M- Excellent! This beer's saving grace.

O- Not bad. Won't benefit from more aging so I have one more for the spring to drink!

Food Pairing

This ok stout paired well with... Lamb shank and root vegetables in a reduced red wine sauce.

Enjoy!

3.41/5  rDev -14.5%

Walnut black under a moderate head that settles to a heavy ring and partial film. Some lace.

Charcoal, some slight dark fruit, a whiff of alcohol. Just pedestrian.

Similar tastewise. Lots of ash and tar. Missing much of the chocolate, fruit, and coffee that you might expect from a brew like this. Lingering coffee finish, however. A touch of sourness. Slightly drying finish. Pretty thin bodied.

Unremarkable in comparison to similar brew. Too understated, nothing pops.
