33cl bottle, 1 year old. Dark brown pour with a thin beige head. Smells of chocolate, cocoa, cherries, figs, dates and cognac. Bitter, crisp, with notes of sour cherries, green hops, chocolate, subtle roasted coffee, whiskey and roasted malts. Smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation and a sticky bitter-sweet aftertaste.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

appearance - As black as black can be with dark brown edges. Had a semi medium aggressive pour which surprisingly resulted in zero head.

smell - dark chocolate is the most prominent thing that comes to mind

taste - Major coffee and chocolate hints to be found. Somewhat nutty. Not much boozyness to be found here.

mouthfeel - Medium thickness. Not quite as thick as I like my imperial stouts to be. Practically no carbonation.

overall - I'm in the netherlands for a month due to a work project, so obviously I immediately searched out the solid offerings this country has. Turns out Europe does not have the infatuation with stouts like we do here in America. Overall though, this is a pretty solid russian imperial stout that has managed to soothe my needs for a European stout.
