COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich roasty brew with a deep "espresso" character. Originally brewed for the Imperial Court in Russia, this stout is a warm festive drink made with the cold Russian Winters in mind. This complex stout is brewed with a combination of nine domestic and imported malts. Only the finest Pacific Northwest hops are used to provide the perfect balance in our award winning beer.

On tap at Sixgill (they have very clean tap lines). Butter bomb. Over the top diacetyl. Buyer beware.

Strong Stout for strong palates. This beer will give you a mind blowing flavor, specially if you are looking for a beer with coffee and chocolate taste. Enjoy it! Cheers! -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Smells dark and sweet like espresso and sin. Pours black like a shadow in the night. Taste fills a void with sweet hops and roasted bitterness...almost like chewing on a chocolate covered coffee bean...but much more exhilarating! I'm a bit smitten by the darkness! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very nice. It's like a train hauling coffee colliding with a comet made of malt right in your mouth while you're trying to snort a hop flower. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap: black with a reddish-brown tint pour and a thin light tan head. Aroma is fruity with stone fruit and roasted chocolate. Flavor is very barleywine-like with a plum fruit start leading to some chocolate and a light roasted grain, ending a bit on the thin side. Decent flavor, just not the big flavorful imp stout I was hoping for.

Pours light dark brown. Big head. Nose is malt and roast. A bit thin on the attack, finish was ok.

Pours black in the glass. Coffee liqueur aroma like Kahlķa. Very coffee-ish flavors bordering on espresso with a slight sweet aftertaste. Overall, tasty...
