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.

dark black pour w/ a thick tan head and good lacing w/ some beautiful reverse cascading carbonation. Rich malty aroma, alcohols, light chocolates, & grains make up an aroma that I found a little 1 dimensional. Palate is full & well coaated. Flavor is roast malts coccoa light coffee a dry wood like finish w/ hints of the alcohol. I enjoyed it.
