COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with brown malts, an English traditional specialty malt, we created an Imperial Russian Stout that has won prizes at festivals across Europe from Sweden to Italy. It’s big, black, roasted and complex. We are convinced that not trying this ale will be a mortal sin to your taste buds and beer experience. Oak chips have been put in 40 year old cognac and then added to the beer.

Bottle from kermis shared @ Dean’s Sticky Floor Tasting II. Pours black with a tan head. Gentle aroma of molasses, caramel and vanilla. The taste is mellow, matching the aroma. Absolutely wonderful

Bottle at home after dinner. Pours coffee black with very little foam. An ever so slight ring of head around the glass. On the nose heavy notes of dark chocolate, roasted malts and wood. Something in there reminded me of the smell of dry dog food. Overall pleasant. Taste was big and bold dark chocolate, slight bitter spice and oak wood. Heavy, thick, and calmingly smooth. Better than most after dinner desserts. One of the best imperial stouts I’ve ever had.

Date on the back read: "Feb 29, 2012." This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a black color with no head and no lacing. The smell, still had a nice sweet dark fruitiness up front over some light black licorice and then some sweet milk chocolate, nice good for the most part. The taste was mainly sweet with a nice dark fruitiness up front over the sweet milk chocolate underneath. Fairly sticky in the aftertaste and leading into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium in body. Sessionability rolls out a fine sticky feel on my tongue. I’d say good. Overall, as an imperial stout, I’d say its nice to have and would have again, it works for the style and for me.

Ótima breja, mas pelo preço, esperava mais. Fez pouca formação de espuma. É saborosa com amargor assertivo. Teor alcoólico não é bem inserido e aumenta a medida que esquenta.

kappldav123 (5810) - GERMANY - NOV 10, 2015
Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass dark black, small head. Heavy malty aroma. Starts oily-malty, very strong, alcoholic notes. Very earthy. Hints of strong black coffee. Oily-malty aftertaste. Not bad.

Mocha, roasted malt and smoke rises in the nose and the expectation is steadily increasing. I tastes gently and surprised a bit of a fruity sweetness where prune and fig can be felt. Roasted malt tones with smoky nuances take over the taste buds, but no more than that there is scope to use strong mocha and dark bitter chocolate. Finally rounds it off with little English licorice and a light hoppy bitterness. This is an imperial stout that has everything your heart desires.

magicmn (146) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 15, 2015
Deep brown to black. Chocolate foam. Roasted malty aroma with nutty and chocolate notes. Oily texture. Sweet taste is good balanced by elegant raosted baley notes and some hop bitterness, can feel chocolate as well. Really good imperial stout.
