COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’re rolling out a new Imperial series with the first beer scheduled to release January ’09. These larger-than-life beers will be sold in 22 oz bottles and on draft. Brewed with more malts and more hops, these beers are big, bold, flavorful, and high-octane. The first in the series is a Russian Imperial Stout. The style was first brewed in England for the Russian Czar and it is the king of stouts. Plenty of big malt flavors- chocolate and roasted- and high alcohol with lower carbonation and mild hops. We brewed this beer with double the malts and four times the hops of regular stouts! Otter Creek Russian Imperial Stout clocks in around 10% ABV- a beer to be savored responsibly. True to style, this beer will last for years so you may want to stock up on a few bottles for your cellar while it’s available.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2010
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of bu11zeye. Pours an opaque black with a dense brown head. Sweet hard roasted malt in the nose. Very solid body, massive hard roasted maltiness with lots of vanilla. Quite some burned malty bitterness with a vaguely tart edge. This is a very straight and classic impy, but it’s amazingly well done. 140310

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2010
Black color. Strong aroma, where the paper and dust win, then roasted malt and coffee, and finally, light vanilla and alcohol. Reasonable body strength, but less than expected, very good milky, roasted malt and chocolate flavor. Balanced. A bit papery but very good.
