COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Really good. Strong toasted malt and woody aroma. Beautiful black color with a dark brown head. Smooth and sharp palate with good weight and carbonation. Very well blended with malts being strong and up front. Roasted and toasted with a slight hops bitterness. Some wood and coffee hints as well. Must try.

Nice, but I guess I expected more, particularly for the ABV. All the right notes are there. But I'd like one or more of more chewiness, more roastiness, and more flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Public House in Vegas. Near black with mocha head. Aroma is subdued - roasted malt dominates, raisin as well. Many more flavors emerge once it hits the tongue - chocolate, roast, coffee, licorice, and raisin. Full body and creamy mouthfeel, but a little sticky. Delicious.
