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

Beautiful piceous black pour with one finger of charred wood brown head and wonderfully visible viscosity. Nose shows lots of dark fruit skins, anise/licorice, sour cherry, burnt wood, coffee liqueur, and rich melted chocolate. Viscous body with a coating mouthfeel and warming finish. Flavor is definitely a showcase for ze dark malt with a huge with a huge bitter chocolate character and black coffee notes. a fair amount of acidity shows as well. The body becomes a bit tiresome as it is very weighty.

12 oz bottle from 2012 release. Pours dark brown to black in color with a thin beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, dark chocolate, nice coffee notes, some caramel, some wood and earthy bitterness to the finish. Good, but I’ve liked some of the others better.

2012 from a trade a while back. Shared with ericteusink. Bittersweet coffee with an almost acidic coffee on the back end. Purple fruit plum and prune. Roasty malt aroma. Smooth up front and easy to drink. The finish is where all the flavor and fruit come in. Leaves a long bittersweet finish. Cocoa texture. Easy to drink and pretty entertaining.

2012 version thanks to Crajun. Ink black pour with a thin tan head into a snifter. Bold aroma of coffee, dark fruit, soy and booze. Huge coffee flavor with some caramel and burnt sugar. Slight hop bitterness on the finish. 9.25%abv nowhere to be found. A year plus in the bottle did this wonders! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Plenty of hops. The flavour is near medium sweet, medium to heavily bitter and and light acidic with deep roast, dark fruit and vibrant hops. The mouthfeel is round and light sticky with a light to medium carbonation. Smoky tar and hops on the finish.Near full bodied.

Taste is slightly sweet, heavy bitter and malty with heavily roasted malts, bitter chocolate, burnt wood, burnt caramel, blackberries, bilberries, burnt caramel, raisins, prunes, resin, salty liquorice candy, grapefruit rinds and dark roast coffee. Mouthfeel is soft, creamy, tiny roasted astringent, tiny boozy and full bodied. Finish is bitter and malty with heavily roasted malts, burnt caramel, burnt wood, bilberries, blackberries, oatmeal cookies, salty liquorice candy, soil and alcohol. Very nice smooth and heavy imperial stout…

Bottle @ Richard’s Tasting. Black in color with a tan head. Uck. Fusel, hot, solvent aroma. Roasted malt, coffee, caramel, and dark chocolate. Some green apple, too. Flavor is slightly sweet and syrupy with a lot of caramel and chocolate. Roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate/cocoa powder. Just way too boozy and hot.
