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 from mikem409 pours jet black with small tan head. Nose is full of dark chocolate. This transfers straight to palate with roast and booze on the edges. Body is slick and full. Booze is perfect, not to hot. This is great. Thanks again for the killer box mike.

Bottle from mikem409, thanks Mike! Pours a foreboding black with a brown head leaving some nice streaky lacing. Aroma has strong rich vanilla and molasses with chocolate and caramel. Down through the glass, some roastiness kicks in. Loving that ... Taste is of sweet vanilla, bakers chocolate, caramelly malts, some bourbon, some roast and sweet molasses at the end. Sweeter than the nose. Full bodied and rich. Finishes bourbon-y long and sweetly bitter. This one was very well done - straight forward bourbon-y chocolate malty. Will need to come up with more Kuhnhenn stuff! 16.8

This poured a jet black with a minimal tan head. Aroma was of.dark.chocolate, licorice, smoke, and soy. Flavor was big and sweet, but not to the point of being over the top. Big abundance.of dark.fruit, smoke and molasses. Pretty amazing this really held up for 8 years.

Bottle from polo, thanks man! Thick oily black pour, with a thin layer of mocha head. Aroma of brown sugar, dark fruits, roasted malts and anise. Taste, medium mouthfeel, bitter coffee, roasted malts, sharp finish. Overall, a good imperial stout for sure better than average but doesn’t blow me away.

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

12 ounce 2012 bottle. Thanks Ryan! Pours a thick dark black with a nice dark brown head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark fruit, coffee, and a bit of alcohol. Improves as it warms. Very nice.
