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).

Black in the glass. Nice holding head. Decent brew but a slight sourness that ruines it a bit. Also the texture a bit to watery for me.

750mL courtesy of sebletitje. It pours with a deep darkness as well as with a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet dark fruity esters, chocolate and some dark roasted malts rimmed thinly by burnt malts. In the background I get an light earthy tobacco sort of note. The taste is nice with a pleasing depth coming from dark roasted malts to a mild level of burnt malts and thin diving into chocolate malts. Into the finish the burnt malts grow to close out the experience.
