COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on the stout brewed by 18th century English brewers for the Russian Imperial Court of Catherine II. The special malted barley in this intense and massive brew delivers rich flavors like dark chocolate, coffee and anise.

Samuel214 (349) - SWEDEN - APR 26, 2016
Flaska från SB. Svart vätska med tjusigt två fingrar högt brunt, fluffigt skum som lämnar rester. Fruktig doft av körsbär och hallon, fruktigt kaffe, men också choklad och lakrits. Något större kropp, len och fyllig. Fin och balanserad i smaken, med körsbärslikör, kaffe, lakrits, choklad och pumpernickel. Lätt syrlig. Ganska snäll efterbeska. Bra och jämn. En något lite kemisk/plastig ton i smaken som stör, men lyckas inte förstöra helhetsintrycket.

knasputte78 (394) - SWEDEN - APR 9, 2016
Svart och lite trög. Massor med torkad frukt och rätt tung smak. Händer dock inte så mycket och blir lite enkel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
