Had on tap at the brewery December 2011.
A: Poured pitch black with a 1/2 finger dark brown head. Not light passed through the glass. Carbonation present.
S: Coffee and roastiness. Missing dark fruits and other complexities.
T: Coffee, dark chocolate and dark roasted malts.
M: Thick and chewy. Noticeable dryness.
O: Not a bad beer but not a great representation of the style. It's missing the complex notes that most Russian Imperials have like dark fruit, dark caramel, etc. Also alcohol isn't warming. I think that's a keen detractor since this beer was made to impress the Russian Czars during winter. Still drinkable but lost points due to style issues.
Serving type: on-tap
