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 (4677) - 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.

juiceisloose (1096) - Windermere, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2010
22 oz bomber topped with black wax, courtesy Beerlando. This one pours a virtually pitch black color without letting any kind of light in at all and crowned by a thick, spongey head of dark khaki colored foam. This beer looks mean. The aroma is very hoppy with huge notes of pine resin and citrus hops on top of the sweet dark chocolate and roasted barley base. Further notes of coffee, anise, and dark fruits push forward as well. The flavor follows with the big dark chocolate, coffee, and barley roast battling with the pine resin and bitter citrus hops. Some dark fruits and anise also makes themselves known. The flavors seem to clash a bit instead of bancing each other out. Full bodied with plenty of carbonation and heat from the alcohol. The roast and warmth from the alcohol linger on the finish for awhile. This is a really nice imperial stout, but one that falls short of the elite status.
