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).

fiulijn (16427) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle from Malting Pot, Brussels
Black color, with generous brownish compact head. It has a seducing aroma of malt and chocolate, with hints of vanilla, followed by coffee and hops. Good body structure, with a fantastic chocolate flavor, with some roasted malts, light coffee, cream, some wood, light smoke. Correct bitterness.
It has thrills and balance. Excellent beer.

BlackHaddock (4924) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2012
25cl on-tap @ Diesters Bierfestival 20 Oct 2012. Deep dark black, almost jet black with a full, thick, creamy head of tanned foam. The nose is coffee and liquorice mostly: but most dark chocolate malt esters could be found, the taste carries on in the same way, those chocolate malts just keep coming up with different flavours to excite your taste buds. A hop presence ensures it doesn’t just turn into a malty mess and the beer is balanced if a bit sweet initially in the taste. Very rare to find it in draught form I’m led to believe. 0.75 Litre bottles being the normal way of coming across it.

Viper666 (2787) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2012
Bouteille 750ml, courtoisie de Slovaksniper. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de malt assez rôti (notes brûlées), de houblon herbeux aux notes citriques, moyen de chocolat noir et d’épices (poivre), léger de café avec des notes de pain grillé. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture moyennement crémeuse. Moyenne amertume de houblon herbeux aux faibles notes citriques accompagné de notes de crème brûlée (faibles notes lactiques) ainsi que de quelques traces de réglisse noire et de poivre lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute très rapidement un goût de malt bien rôti avec un moyen goût de cacao et quelques notes de pain brûlé. En finale l’amertume de houblon se fait plus asséchante et un petit caractère résineux et on dénote également la présence d’un léger goût de café et de quelques traces d’alcool. Post-goût moyen-long et un peu sec, moyennement amer de rôti et de houblon herbeux aux traces résineuses avec un léger goût de chocolat noir ainsi que des notes de café.
