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.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Shared bottle with Timfoolery. Pours pitch black. Tastes of chocolate and maybe a little bit of expresso. The carbonation level seemed a little low. A little more carbonation puts it up with the elite beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bytemesis (3830) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours inky black, medium creamy dark brown head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Aroma is roasty, dark roasted malts, chocolate, some anise, a bit of tobacco, molasses. Flavor is light sweet, medium bitter, roasty, dark chocolates and anise, woody tobacco notes. Perhaps some hints of rye, but not a strong component here. Lingering bitterness, but pleasant, not overpowering. Not very hot at all. Fullish body, creamy mouthfeel. One of the better non BA impy’s, IMO.
