Alaska’s Most Wanted Series.

First brewed as part of our 2011 World Tour series, MOSCOW Rye Russian Imperial Stout is a hefty, opaque black liquid that pours slowly and soulfully into your snifter. A high percentage of spicy rye and roasted dark malts create a dense, chewy yet elegant winter wonderland of flavors. And from AK we say: Let it Snow…in Moscow.

Bottle: Thanks, Kevin. Oily black pour, soft tan foam that settles quickly. Aroma with light roasted malt, ash, licorice, burnt brown sugar, & a hint of papery oxidation. Charcoal on the palate with some ashy, burnt malts & light smoke. Anise, licorice, a touch of very bitter chocolate, modest oxidation lingering in the finish.

With Zach, pours a pitch black pour with a nice Java head. Nose is rich chocolate malt, and licorice. Taste is sweet rich chocolate, and burnt coffee. Finish is smooth and velvety, and ends on the same delicious tasting notes, with a moderately long finish. Quaff Score 8 / 10
