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.

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle from Andy at the 4th of July tasting. Pours dark brownish black with a small tan head. Both the aromas and taste are super roasty with notes of chocolate, cocoa and bitter coffee with some subtle notes of sweeter dark fruits and malts.

Bottle. Blackish beer with a dark brown head. Rich malt and toffee aroma with light earthiness. Caramel and light coffee flavor with toffee and light chocolate. Fuller bodied. Caramel/toffee lingers with chocolate, earth, and licorice.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUN 29, 2013
22oz bottle. Rating #65. Super thick pour, almost the consistency of milk, dark black with no light penetration and a brown head. Sweet dark fruit aroma, dried fruits and a little milk chocolate. Light roastiness and bitter dark malts that lightly linger on the tongue, not an overpowering taste overall, but pretty damn good. (2825)

Dark brown pour, brown head. Toasty flavors, some coffee, plums, light smoke. Good but not incredible.

ericdevin (741) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Alaska’s Most Wanted. Pours very dark, good amount of rich brown head. Very appealing-looking. Aroma slightly roasty, rye very prominent, maybe some booze. Aroma OK but not amazing for the style. Body medium-rich, finish surprisingly sweet and long lasting. Nutty qualities of the rye dominant. Warming well-hidden. Quite a bit different, but very tasty.

Bottle pour opaque black. Nose of bacon, roast, chocolate. Taste of the same. Slightly thin mouth feel, but hey, who doesn’t love bacon.

leeburg (227) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUN 22, 2013
One of the thickest, blackest beers I’ve ever seen. Dark brown head. Aroma is boozy, slight chocolate and coffee notes. Flavor is heavy with rich sweetness and lingering bitterness. The depth and richness with the hoppy finish gives a distinct soy sauce character. Pretty massive.

dogfish120love (937) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 18, 2013

50belair (2219) - Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle, ’13 release. Dark brown pour with a brown head. Roasted malt aromas. Dark roasted malts, slight bitterness, muted baker’s chocolate notes. Good body and mouthfeel.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - JUN 11, 2013
2013 release. Poured into a snifter at room temp. Thick, black pour, with a thin, dark brown head that lasts through out the time in the glass. Deep, complex layers of perfectly roasted grain, dark dried fruit, roasted nuts, almond husk, dark chocolate, soy, and bitter coffee. 11% alcohol is well concealed by the intense flavors. A hint of sweetness, though overall, its definitely on the drier side. Low carbonation, with a viscous med-plus body. Long, mildly bitter finish echoing the above mentioned flavors. Awesome stuff. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...
