Welcome to the biggest beer Squatters Pub Brewery has ever made! A Russian Imperial Stout is one of the most intensely flavored beers a brewer can create. The combination of rich roasted barley, oak, molasses and licorice root combine to create an utterly unique and complex imperial stout experience. We had to mash in twice to get our starting gravity of 27 plato (1.108 specific gravity). We boiled 3.5 hrs to enhance caramelization and used molasses and licorice root at the end of boil. Outer Darkness is aged with oak, has 65 ibu’s and bottle conditioned. We hope you have as much fun drinking it as we did making it. Please share with another and drink wisely.

dmac (4091) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 15, 2010
22 oz bomber from zathrus13, thanks bro. Poured a pitch black body with an overly large foamy beige head. Aroma is roasty with notes of used band aids, dark cherries and a hint of tobacco. Flavors of alcohol, burnt malts, earth, grassy hops, dark chocolate and cola. Medium bodied, a little light for an Impy stout, along with strong carbonation. I was hoping for more from this one. Let down.
