COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Russian Imperial Stout brewed with American Amarillo hops.

Brassée en Angleterre à partir du 18ème siècle, cette variante plus forte du Stout traditionnel était destinée à la cour de l’impératrice Catherine II de Russie. La Postiche est une héritière moderne de ce style, où les saveurs torréfiées des malts s’équilibrent aux arômes citronnés des houblons américains (Amarillo).

corkyrory66 (885) - BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2014
Russian imperial stout non filtré non pasteurisé de 8,1 % abv et 65 EBU. Mon exemplaire a été brassé chez Anders à Halen avec une date limite au 15/11/15. Couleur noir charbon totalement opaque. Mousse brune épaisse avec des cratères en haut, de toute beauté. Arômes de malt noir, café, chocolat noir des meilleures fèves de cacao, pointe de fumée fine, tabac noir, notes de fût de cognac. 1ère bouche veloutée sur un grand ensemble café/tabac avec du fût de grand chai. Arrière-bouche riche, noble, forte. 2ème à la très grande richesse fruits noirs/bois/fût. Arrière-bouche longue. 3ème sur un fantastique ensemble où les malts se marient à l’Amarillo dans un enchantement grandiose. La longueur retrouve le meilleur fût de cognac en grande champagne, avec des nuances infinies. Les jambes sont unies. La levure est un régal de nuances : poivre, épices, fleurs, miel. Une merveille. L’alcool offre un soutien incontestable et super efficace aux saveurs. La finale est divine, que dis-je impériale … CONCLUSION : nous sommes ici à un sommet de la dégustation. La finesse et l’ampleur de cette bière sont strictement admirables. Du tout grand art. Bienheureuse cour impériale qui recevait pareils présents dans ses coupes d’or … Du sang impérial, royal, et divin, nous en faisons 3 sangs … donc 300 sur 100.

erickok (4299) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 6, 2014
Dark bodied, beige head. Coffee, toasty, bitter, brown sugar start but harder bitter ending. Bit too cloying the for me, too much brown sugar, but luckily the ending is much better. It’s okay but looking at all those high ratings... (On tap at Moeder Lambic)
