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.

Dark brown pour with a nice tan head. Roasty and chocolate with a faint coffee scent. Dark chocolate and bittersweet flavor with a little oakiness coming through. Lovely stout.

Typical of the Belgian Imperial style in that everything is soft and subtle,you have to have a fresh clean palate to appreciate this. Aroma soft chocolate cake with molassas frosting, some vanilla in there,a little zing of some dark fruit,someone else said cinnimon, flavor is much the same ,smooth as can be,some roastedness ,nicely done ,but you have to work to hard to get all the enjoyment

Bottle shared by Phatdog1 @ RBNEG. Pours black as a moonless night in the country with a thin beige ring. Aroma is full of dark malt, bakers chocolate and molasses. Flavor contains the aforementioned flavors as well a hint of vanilla bean. Wants to be sweet, but gets dragged to the dark side by the roasted malt and molasses. Thick heavy bodied with a sticky palate. This was terrific and I bet it would age incredibly well.

With a bright, almost orange/brown colored head, this beer looks heavy, as carbonation very slowly climbs through its thick, black body. It has a beautiful aroma of a sweet, bourbon/whiskey, wood-like character and alcohol. I can easily tell a 10%+ ABV beer when I taste one. And this one’s pretty obvious, but pleasant. Soft in the mouth, warm with alcohol, and gently decorated with a touch of chocolate and roasted malts. It finishes warm with a hint of whiskey/bourbon and a really easy, enticing alcohol presence. Drink this in the winter to warm your soul... or in the 95 degree heat (like me) for a good time. Don’t drink this too warm, though.

Served from a 22 oz bottle from The Pub in the Monte Carlo. The appearance is an oily black with a thin tan brown head. The aromas are milky with a good amount of coco. The flavors are solid. Nice roasty malts with a bitter chocolate being the main contributor. Some oaky dryness notes and molasses as well. Worth another try for sure, solid Imperial Stout.

Bottle. Black with a thick tan head. Aroma is dark fruit and bourbon. Taste starts with dark fruit and molasses, fading to chocolate and roasted malt. Palate is thick and sticky. This is a big one but it's got the flavor to back it up. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
