Canned 11/3/21. Drank 2/25/22
Pour is jet black with a thin, fizzy cinnamon colored head that fades quickly leaving a little ring around the glass.
Nose is soft, oaky, coconut/vanilla bourbon, hint of chilis, cinnamon
Taste is subtle cinnamon, low/mild heat from chilies, roasted malts, chocolate, painted on a backdrop of oaky bourbon vanilla. finishes with a lingering dry fudge. and a hint of heat from chilies.
well made beer, and the 15% ABV is well hidden, too.

Got this for $13, kind of a steep price for a can but hey it's 16 oz of 15% so who can complain? Love the black can, it looks so sleek. I wish more breweries would use a black can because it's definitely more goth. Lovely artwork of a Russian nesting doll, hopefully there are some great flavors nested in this brew. Poured out into my snifter dark brown with a multicolored tan/khaki/brown/rust head. Dissipated quickly. The scent is very inviting. It is warm, like cinnamon toast, or the smell of Grandma's house after she's baked snickerdoodles. There are also hints of vanilla wafting up. OK a taste, and holy o my god, this is really freaking good. It's a wash of cinnamon balanced by some other spices like nutmeg and cloves. In fact this reminds me of my goth phase back in the late '90s, because this tastes like smoking clove cigarettes. It's got that smoothness, that richness of flavor, that special blend that makes it so attractive, so different than an ordinary cigarette, I mean Russian Imperial Stout. As i swallow a gentle wash of heat from the chilis rises up and envelops my mouth. Not too spicy, but just enough to zap me with a small current of electricity. This is the kiss of flavor that seals the deal, and I'm sold. My knees quiver and tremble, my lips shake at every sip, I am won over, I am smitten, I am yours. Bless this brewer, bless this brew, "Dosvidanya" means "Goodbye", but I say "Hello".

Pours jet black with a medium tan head.

Taste is very malty and thick, lots of dark chocolate, cinnamon and a nice chile spice. The bourbon plays very well and the alcohol is well hidden so be careful.

16 oz can

pours black, thick tan colored head. As labeled, a ton of bourbon, dark cocoa, cinnamon, and chile pepper in thw aroma. Bold, roasty, boozy. It definitely drinks like a 15% abv beer, its a sipper
