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.

Tried to enjoy this one but it just wasnt happening. tried three 12oz mixed with a yeti and rasputin to give it the benefit of a drunken palate but it just does not hold up. Begins cold as tobbacco flavor but as warmth sets into the beer taste is close to bottled beef jerky Drinkable? yes, enjoyable? slightly. Not the worst but not near the top tier.

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.
