This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a black color with an off white to tan color-ed foamy head that dissipated within less than two minutes. Lacing was super thick and foamy, really clinging to the glass. The smell started off with big roasty coffee beans running into delicate milk and dark chocolate tones. Light black licorice does end up rounding it out nicely. The taste was semi-bitter with the roasty and sweet tones of the coffee and chocolate coming in to balance. Light roasty aftertaste rolled into a dry semi-sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a good carbonation about it - its fairly smooth and leads to a nice sipping quality about it. Overall, as a foreign/export stout this one definitely works. I’d have it again.

Black with two fingers of tan head. Ring of lace.
Smell is dark roasted malts. Some dark roasted coffee.
Taste is dark roasted malts coffee some vanilla beans.
Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Finish is semi dry and slightly bitter.
Overall a fine Stout and well worth repeating.

Painted bomber, always nice for glass cutting or homebrew purposes. Pours black, 1" brown head. Looks good. Aroma is roast, dark fruit. I should also note this was aged 5 years before I drank it.

Taste had more of the dark fruit and roasted malt bitterness, but mouth feel was smooth enough that the bitterness didn't dominate. Hid the alcohol decently. No significant oxidation notes. This hit the hallmarks for style of an export and Russian Imperial Stout.

$7 a bomber I think, I dunno, that comes out to an expensive 6 pack. Would prefer 12oz bottles of this.

It pours a little the and the aromas are not strong. The flavor is very good, with coffee notes and lots of malt. The mouthfeel is solid but could be smoother to really make this stand out.
