COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

12oz. bottle served in a Duvel tulip. Poured a deep reddish brown with a couple of fingers of tan head. Chocolate, roasted barley and fair amount of hops in the aroma. On the lighter side of the Imperial Stout spectrum. Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. More roasted barley in the flavor and a good amount of hop bitterness. Dry malty finish with some chocolate. Nice to see this in bottles.

Pours an opaque black with a thick tan head. Not much in the aroma. Taste is roasty but overpowered by the bitterness of the hops. Tasty & bitter. An interesting stout!

A great imperial stout. Tastes close to Rasputin, but quite a bit mellower (less bite). The malt is nice without being overwhelmingly thick/sweet.

Draught in Lawrence. Nice dark brown pour with a nice khaki head and lacing. Pretty hoppy aroma balanced with roasted malt. Green hops in the flavor at first then finishes with coffee. Nice and not overpowering.

Growler courtesy of mreusch, thanks Matt! Pours dark mahogany with ruby edges and thin tan head. The aroma is a bit mild with some roast, some chocolate notes and a touch of caramel and toffee. As it warms a pleasing thin layer of earthiness is noticed. The taste is pretty darn smooth and near creamy at times bringing in notes of dark roasted malts and then moving into a nice mix of black licorice, chocolate and earthiness. The more I drink this the more I like it.

Thanks to the TampaCrew for sharing this one. Pours brown with an off-white head. Nose is roast, hops, pine, bitter, spice, and slight chocolate. Flavor is similar with a bit of lingering pine. Medium body and pretty good.
