4.03/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Pours like used oil from a diesil engine..black and thick..deep tan head..great lacing.
smells of coffee, chocolate and booze..not surprising given the 10% ABV..oh those Russians!
taste is well...boozy with some nice chocolate and expresso highlites..but IMO the alcohol content seems to over-ride the flavour here.
Very chewy as to be expected, but the carbonation level seemed a bit high compared to other stouts I've sampled
a definite dessert beer and a good one at that..will put the other 5 in the cellar to sample a few years from now.
tried one from the cellar and wow! after a year the beer has mellowed by a factor of 5 at least. The inital blast of booziness is replaced by a richer, smoother overall taste and mouthfeel.
