COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American example of an English style of beer made for the Russian Royals. This ale deep black in color, finally released after being aged for 16 months. Made using large amounts of malt and roasted barley yields the most robust beer we make. Thick coffee like flavor and aroma. This beer is well hopped and finishes bitter. This is a real treat

(Bottle) Pours a opaque, oily black body with a spare brown head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and a hint of bourbon. Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate, smoke, and wood with a smooth, silky (dessert-like) mouthfeel that finishes somewhat dry.

Dense black, thick swirls of mocha colored head. Rich and complex nose of coffee crème brulee, milk chocolate covered currants, toast, pistachio, and English toffee. Roasted coffee and creamy milk chocolate flavors dominate with touches of toasted vanilla beans, caramel and alcohol. Full bodied like a milkshake, soft carbonation, lightly bittersweet finish. This brew is kickin out the jams! Thanks for the bottle Hopscotch. Now go shower your new friends in Florida with good brews….

12 oz bottle from Artusory. This dark brown ale poured with a miniscule tan head and a strong chocolate malt aroma. The flavor is sweet with noticeable coffee and chocolate characteristics. The flavors stick to the tongue long after the swallow and there is, indeed, a bitter finish. This is a nice dessert beer.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Ibrew2or3. Thank you very much, Dave for this treat. The aroma is soy saucew, dark chocolate, burnt malt, un-sweetened dark grainy bread, alcohol, coffee and some light dark fruit notes. The body is a stygian black and holds a bottle cap thickness head that is a very dark mocha and diminishing. <P> Fore is burnt dark fruits including cherry and blueberry. A massive burnt bitterness follows along with dark chocolate, soy sauce, espresso, vanilla and cream. This is much closer to Courage Imperial Stout (in flavor) than almost any American version I have had. It almost tastes a little oxidized like an old Imperial Stout or Barley Wine. Pretty nice stuff.

Black body with a fading, tan head. The aroma is raisins, plums, roast, chocolate with hints of rum. The flavor is burnt, coffee, molases, chocolate, vinous and fairly sweet. Full, sticky body, slightly oily with soft carbonation.

12oz bottle, via artusory. Thanks, Ryan! Dark, dark core; medium tan head with decent lacing. Dried fruits (raisins), dark chocolate, and caramel in the aroma. Full mouthfeel: dried fruit, bitter chocolate and caramel, toasty vanilla. Excellent concentration, and much more expressive and interesting than most imperial stouts I’ve had recently. Medium, bitter chocolate and vanilla finish. Tasty stuff.

LeopoldStoch (201) - Green, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Thanks to Styles for this beer! Very rich dark and thick appearence with lots of good roast flavors, with chocolates and coffee. This beer does a real good job of hiding the 13% alcohol, and it is a real sipper to sit and enjoy. The flavors change and evolve throughout the beer getting warmer and closer to room temp. Overall a real tasty treat!

wow...what a beer! rich and thick, smooth and creamy. my second bottle from the Kuhnhenn holiday 6 pack, thanks to Styles. aroma is sweet molasses, black licorice, dried dark fruit and roasted malts. flavor has much of the same but with some chocolate and a bit of coffee. alcohol is detectable, but it doesn’t burn nor is it hot in any way. palate is thick and rich and finishes with some roasty bitterness. outstanding stout in every way. last line of the commercial description is dead on: "this is a real treat"

Growler shared by sliffy, thanks! Quite a way to start of the night. Poured an oily black with a nice lookin’ dark tan head. Aroma was of dark chocolate, roasted bready malt, coffee, and some vinous elements as well. Flavors were of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, a bit of smoke, some dark fruits and a tinge of hazlenut. Thick velvety body, and finished with a roasty-dry-bitter. Really wonderful stuff!
