Honoring our favorite local blacksmith, this flavorful Stout is a selected mix of ten malts and five hop varieties. Imperial Stout was a key British export in the Baltic trade that elevated art and industry in Russia and England during the 18th Century.

thegreenrooster (3720) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Pour is an almost black with a small white head. Aroma is some chocolate malt, molasses and a fruity hop. Flavor is a bitter roast with some chocolate notes, a slight mint and bit of hops hiding in the backround. Finish leaves a of roast and molasses on the tongue. A decent beer, not as intense as some impy stouts, but worth a try.

Solid imperial stout. Aroma of roasted malts and oak. Deep dark color with a nice tan head. Filling body with plenty of weight. Average carbonation. Roasted flavor with a balancing bitterness. After flavors of dark chocolate. Alcohol was well-hidden. Good representation of the style.

12 oz bottle. Tasted on 8/9/14. Beer from Beertopia. The beer pours to medium dark black color with a light tan head. The aroma has some dark fruit & chocolate, with some licorice. The taste is medium in body & has a medium complexity to it. Overall a pretty good stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from trade. Pours coca cola black with an off white head that falls quickly. Alright, so this is basically a black IPA. Aroma is citrus, caramel and smoked malts, flavor follows nose. A bit of molasses tempers the grassy bitterness in the finish.

Bottle with thanks to RobertDale. Pours opaque black with a large pillowy beige head that slowly dissipates leaving picture perfect lacing on the glass. Aroma is nothing special, lots of roasted malts, coffee, ashtray, a bit of cocoa, bitter on the nose. Flavor is light sweet, medium bitter, citrus and pine hops; this one is pushing toward black IPA for sure. Roasty, with coffee and malt notes, no real chocolate in the taste. Medium light body, creamy mouthfeel, a bit chalky perhaps. Lots of lingering citrus hops. Black IPA, and a good one.
