bottle into guinness tulip pint glass. nice bottle, very sexy.
A - a good pour, beer seems decently thick, or so it seems. two finger medium dark tan head, with a very appealing rocky texture across. not as creamy as it could be. the head leaves great sticky lace all over the glass. the body is pitch black no light getting through the center. but even when not held up at the light, one can see that the beer is a dark cola colour at the bottom. head lasts a good amount of time.
S - nose is mostly dark roasted malt and yeast. surprisingly close to guinness, though this beer is ice cold, so the nose might take a hit. yeah not really much beside the roasted malt notes. I can get a bit of yeast and coffee but not much else.
T - good ris for such a good price, sometimes those whom one thinks are mediocre really come out and impress sometime (what the hell am I writing? Der Alte ist so high dude!). the initial taste is a definite yeasty buzz feeling along with this delicate chocolate bitter and coffee roatstiness. birkinau. oh man, im gone. at times there is a distinct sweetness like that dark chocolate: reluctant to be sweet, and what the fuck is jason bourne doing? god, just let me get on with this review. the aftertaste is malty and a bit of choco. its a good beer, but having had some of the best, I am not convinced it deserves the half mark further.
MF&D - it looked good, tasted alright, went down quite well. a good bargain for a decent russian beer.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into KBS snifter, bottled in 2013. Bottle stored in cellar then briefly refrigerated prior to opening. Pours a beautiful jet black and forms a two inch foamy head that's beige in color. The head ultimately settles into a thin ring around the glass.
The nose is French roast coffee and milk chocolate, quite inviting. There's also a strong roasted malt aroma, followed by a spicy presence that hints of nutmeg. The taste is quite similar to its nose, bitter mocha, sweet molasses and roasted malt, fudge and spicy (chile ancho and nutmeg).
The mouthfeel of this beer is quite pleasant, almost no carbonation present which in my opinion helps savour the beer even better.
Overall - very excited to discover this beer, its quite enjoyable and hides the 10% ABV extremely well. Its sweet yet no overwhelmingly so and all of its flavors are well balanced.
