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

Boutip (5910) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of creamy medium-dark chocolate notes with light floral coffee notes with some roasted malt notes but limited bitterness. Taste is quite spectacular with great creamy medium-dark chocolate notes with some floral dry coffee notes, some lactose notes and some medium dry bitter roasted malt to finish. Body is full with luscious creamy texture with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Quite a balanced experience with loads of flavours while retaining some good amount of drinkability.

’12 bottle from Sean - thanks! Oily black pour with a very dark expresso colored head that lingers before clinging to the edges of the glass. Aroma is thick and substantial cocoa, roast, chocolate, fudge, and light hop bitterness into the finish. Taste is massive chocolate with roast and darker malt notes including raisin intermingling with a noticeable hop bitterness. Bitter coffee as well in there. Oily and coating mouthfeel with an ebb of carbonation. Huge and clean and glorious.

Thanks to my sister for snagging me one of these as the 2005/2006 release of this beer I traded away my only bottle. So glad to finally get to try it. The 12oz bottle pours with deep darkness and supporting a mocha colored head. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, black strap molasses, dark chocolate and a bit of booze at the end of the draw. The taste is similar with black strap molasses, dark roasted malts, some burnt malts and brown sugar sweetened pine hops. The roasty to burnt goodness is hitting the spot right now. Man, I have been waiting a real long time for this. It was well worth the wait. This is dynamite.

Pours pitch black with a medium dark mocha head...looks thick! Aroma has bitter dark chocolate, sweet coffee, and hints of smoke/ash and dark fruits. Flavor has some slightly tangy dark fruit up front that is quickly drowned out by bitter dark chocolate, espresso,and ash. Mouthfeel is full and creamy with a roasty espresso/dark chocolate finish that lingers. Dave Marlin would call this oil for your body.

Bacterial (2827) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2015 What a nice beer! This easily hangs with the big boys: Abyss, Darkness, Speedway, etc. Thick black pour with a thing tan head with almost a red hue. Malty sweet is quickly subdued by bold hops and coffee notes. Nice bitterness on the finish with only a touch of alcohol. 2012 vintage. Edit: A second bottle of 2012 vintage from my cellar. Chocolate really shines through, thick, complex. Coffee is there but not dominant. Bitter, but still malty and bitter chocolate in the finish. Fabulous.
