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).

Noire, effervescence moyenne, col brun fin avec belle dentelle sur le verre. Malts moyennement grillés, belle présence de chocolat, réglisse moyennement présente, un rien citronnée, ABV se fait un peu sentir.

poech73 (370) - Braine, BELGIUM - FEB 21, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2014 Bière brune avec un beau col épais et une robe ténébreuse qui développe des effluves florales importantes, de réglisse, de malt torréfié et de levure. En bouche: fortes saveurs boisées, café expresso aromatisé à la réglisse. Ici l’alcool élevé rend la gorgée légèrement sirupeuse. Finale boisée avec des notes amérisées acres et citronnées, légèrement huileuse et des saveurs de cacao. Belle dégustation un peu âpre à cause de la dose prépondérante d’Amarillo mais où l’alcool élevé fait bien ce qu’on attend de lui. Cependant, je goûte pas l’orge grillé qui fait pourtant le définition de ce genre.
