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

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2013 Bottle from Winter Solstice 2012. Pours a deep black color, very thick, with a small dark brown head that fades quickly. Deep, rich aroma. Dark chocolate, sweet cream, ash, burnt wood, black licorice, and dark roasted coffee. Taste has a moderate sweetness and a moderate bitterness. Lots of dark chocolate, dark roasted malt, and burnt, ashy wood. Definitely a little more burnt than I like. Finish is very long, lots of ash and bitter dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is very thick and chewy but still pretty smooth. Well made imperial stout but not the flavors I generally prefer.

More robust than most, both in abv and roastiness. It isn’t too sweet or too port-y. I like it.

Aroma has notes of chocolate, espresso, tons of citrus hops and a slight note of alcohol. Pitch black hue with a nice average brown head that mostly diminished and left good lace. Beautiful beer. Flavor is very sweet and very very bitter. Palate is very full bodied and oily with an average carbonation. A very good Impy but very hot right now. It has everything you would want from a base beer for barrel aging. It has everything in all the right places but the hops are very big. This will probably cellar extremely well. Reminds me of 3F Baller.

Ungstrup (29171) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 12, 2012
Bottled. A black beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, roasted malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, roasted malt, and soy sauce, leading to a dry, roasted, and alcoholic finish.

JanLaursen (3025) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 12, 2012
Bottle at Papsø tasting. Ghee, this is black-black. With no head. Prunes, licorice, roasted malts in the nose. Flavor is more impressive. Overripe fruity, darkly hidden secrets, sweet sticky licorice syrup, coffe roast. A bit too boozy. And maybe a bit too old? Full body, engine oily, flat carbonation.
