This authentic English ale was exported to the Tsars of Russia in the 18th Century. Its high alcohol content kept the beer from freezing during its trip across the Baltic Sea. This ale is smooth, rich and complex with true balance between the malt sweetness and roastiness and just enough hops to balance.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2014 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a black color with a medium sized foamy beige head that faded and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was dryish and roasty with notes of coffee and wood. The flavor was semi sweet and toasty with notes of coffee, vanilla, faint floral hops, a bit of cocoa and marshmallow. Very long toasty and roasty finish with lingering coffee, vanilla and floral hops. Medium body. Tasty.
