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.

Clear dark red-brown beer. Big creamy tan head. Semi dry palate, a little soft. Dark toffee with a light touch of sweetness and a mild bubblegum streak. Creamy malt before the semi dry finish. Comes over like a dark barleywine! Interesting beer!

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2010
Black color; medium sized creamy head, beige. Aroma of dark caramel and light roasted malt; chocolate, leather, a touch of five-spices. Strong but lean body; rich chocolate and caramel flavor, with leather and tobacco notes, good sweetness; the final is correctly bitter, playing with the sweet chocolate and without traces of roasted malt, just light liquorice. Very well balanced. Excellent.
