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 at Hamilton’s. Pours almost black with a creamy brown head. Tastes very smooth, like burnt toast, coffee, dark chocolate, booze, light ash. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet chocolate, dark coffee, roasted malt, burnt toast, alcohol.

glennmastrange (2489) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle. Moderate toasted cereal and molasses for the malt, light to moderate resin for the hops, light earth for the yeast, with a hint of tar in the background. Head is small, frothy turning wispy, brown with good slippery lacing and good legs and is mostly diminishing. Color is just about black. Flavor starts lightly to oderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately bittersweet and lightly acidic. Palate is full, creamy, with a soft carbonation, and a chewy and sticky finish. Everything about this Imperial Stout is spot on, Bold in the right places and nothing offensive about it.

Spicy and fruity, yet dark roasted and bitter at the same time. Lots going on - a little abrasive, perhaps, but a good brew overall (if a bit expensive).

KansaiBeerLvrs (3554) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 10, 2014
Shared by Maek at the Craft Beer Picnic. An inky pitch black pour with a ruddy rusty head. 11% a bit boozy, very savoury with a bitter rich dark chocolate(80-90%cacao), slightly chalky taste , very rich, candied plums & pitted fruits with some roasty coffee notes. Quite complex. Wonderful. Boozy but good.

bomber, lots of rich flavors, very thick but the alcohol is well hidden, the rye isn’t noticable and couldnt really taste it, your typical above average stout

Pours a solid black with a tan head and lacing. It has a rich aroma of dark malt, toast, spicy rye, and some alcohol. The flavor is rich malt and some toast and coffee with a spicy eye finish over a heavy body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
