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. Celebrate craftsmanship and raise a glass to broader flavor horizons.

Bottle from a trading partner, pours a dark brown coffee with a thin tan head. Aroma is anise, coffee and malt. Taste is a little coffee and some chocolate, light bitterness, not overly complex, decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice appearance - has quite a bit of head and lots of lacing. Aroma a bit weak for an impy - not much beyond some cocoa. Surprisingly light-bodied as well - I would not expect this to be an impy based on mouthfeel - it seems more like a regular stout. Mostly cocoa flavors with some bitterness - not getting the coffee notes so common to this style. Overall, it’s not a bad beer, but it does not have the bolder, more complex flavors typical of impy stouts.

Bottle shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad! The beer is dark brown with a long lasting beige head that leaves random traces of lacing on the glass. The aroma offers dark roast, malt. The flavor brings hints of coffee and finishes dry, with notes of bitter chocolates. While I wasn’t blown away by this, I thought this was a decent beer. Worth a try.
