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.

frankenkitty (2006) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Inky black body with a huge, slow-forming, slow-settling, mocha brown head. Chocolate syrup aroma, malted milk, rum, low soapy florals. Rather intense roasted bitterness, burnt coffee, tempered slightly with dark-chocolate bittersweetness. Thick bodied with a carbonated background which adds a bloat to the finish. Bittersweet chocolate lingers, almost to the point of being sour. Started out promising, finished up rather so-so. ~~~~~~~~~~~ Via my good buddy Cornfield.

brnandersen (3203) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2016
355 ml bottle from a Fakta discounter. Poured in to a Snifter. Pitch black with a creamy, tanned head. Sweet aroma with roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, caramel malts, liquorice and spicy hints. Taste is sweet. Full body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes slightly dry with roasted notes and chocolate. Lovely Stout. At just 13 DKK this is very hard to beat price-taste wise.
