A decadent stout, inspired by the special British ales exported to the Russian Court, during the 18th century. It is black and viscous like crude oil from the oil fields in the Caspian Sea. The flavor is dominated by dark notes of burnt sugar, spicy hops and smokiness from peaked malt. Unpasteurized * Unfiltered * Bottle-conditioned.
Ingredients: water, barley malt, sugar, hops, yeast.

500 ml bottle. Pours black with a small beige head that lasts. The aroma is roasted malts, dark chocolate, char, subtle peat, dark caramel, anise and some mild hops. The flavor has big roasted malts, char, dark caramel, dark chocolate, peat with moderate bitterness at the finish. Pretty good, definitely worth a try.

Bottle: I had this at the annual Stout tasting in Boise hosted by some Beer Advocate guys (gasp) where they allow some rating whores in from ratebeer. This brew had a funky aroma with weird flavors to follow. not a fan.

Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Black with a tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, alcohol, a bit of chocolate and some licorice. Rather sweet flavor with dark fruits, licorice, a bit of chocolate, and alcohol. Medium to full-bodied, kinda boozy.

Theydon_Bois (12058) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2015
Bottle split at Chriso Easter tasting, 04/04/15. Pitch black with a decent tan covering. Nose is rich chocolate, spice, earthy roast, toffee. Taste comprises dark fruit notes, chocolate, molasses, toffee fudge, peppery spice, toasted brown sugar. Medium + body, fine carbonation, drying close. No game changer but a decent enough impy.

Reimer96 (1463) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 17, 2015
Pours an opaque black with a small brown head that leaves good legs on the glass. Aroma of anise, roasted malts, cocoa, smoke, campfire and black licorice... Great Aroma. Taste is peated malts, roasted malts, black licorice, burnt sugar and a smooth bitterness on the finish. Complex and balanced with a bit of a cloying mouthfeel likely due to the addition of sugar.
