COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours pitch black oily with a small dark brown head leaving lacing. Aroma is sweet fruity buck weed grassy almonds. Flavor is velvety extremely roasted acidy dry bitter yet has some underlying sweetnes. Finishes very dry bitter and acidy. OK but too much bitter hops for my palate.

phaleslu (6608) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2012
22 oz. bottle shared by beernbourbon- thanks again, Vince! Pours darker than any beer I’ve seen in a long time, with an opaque near-black color and small brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of rich, roasty malts, dark chocolate, molasses, earth, and rye. Flavor of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, earth, leaves, rye, and a hint of dark fruits. Medium-full bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth, roasty mouthfeel with some underlying bitterness. Big and bold.

beernbourbon (1310) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Bottle thanks to Ira, thanks man! Pour is wicked dark, viscous black with a ring of tan foam. Aroma and flavor loaded with smooth roasty malt, light spice, light dark chocolate, and smooth as silk. Really enjoyed this one.

jsquire (3502) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2012
This is one thick, opaque beer. Very viscous liquid that thickly coated the sides of the glass. Thin galaxy of bubbles for a head. Big nose of chocolate and alcohol. Chewy flavors of chocolate and caramel with some ash and roasty grains. Great mouthfeel. Really nice imperial stout.

Bottle courtesy of GT2. Served in a Midnight Sun goblet. Pours near black with a short mocha head. Nose has quite a bit of roast along with some ash. Strong roast and a bit of chocolate. Flavor has quite a bit of ash. Medium body. Slightly viscous. Ashy and dry. A bit bitter. Not a huge fan.

GT2 (8510) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 9, 2012
651mL thanks to savnac. Ink pour with small Martian red foam. Nose is weaker. Small soy but muted overall. Taste is mega mega bitter and super dry. No creaminess. Very sharp and ashy to the max. A bit disappointed. Too abrasive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Fredfest 2012. Pours black with a modest tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a thick dark molasses and rye flavor that sticks to the palate. Lots of chocolate. You almost need a spoon to consume it, but it’s bloody good.
