COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Keg & Bottle; Regular.
Previously 7.7%.
Imperial Russian Stout
Rich and dark with smoke, subtle peatiness and the power of the dark malts. Molasses and liquorice and chocolate goodness all wrapped up in a smooth, warming liquid. Finishes with a distinct humming bitterness carried well by the hop and malt combo.

StoutHead (700) - DENMARK - NOV 26, 2014
Draught at Craft Beer Co, Covent Garden. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Taste is of roasted malt, licorice and lots of coffee. Aftertaste dominated by coffee and licorice. Body feels a bit thin the ABV considered, so medium body and carbonation. Solid stout but perhaps not one if you’re not into coffee.

veceo (620) - CROATIA - NOV 24, 2014
Dark brown color, average sized tan head. Lots of lacing. Medium body, soft carbonation. Aroma of smoke, malt, dark fruits, chocolate, some hops. Medium sweet, light bitter taste. Not much body for imperial stout category, but still very good.

Gorgosh (271) - - NOV 21, 2014
Bara begreppet Russian imperial stout signalerar misär, kommunism och storhetsvansinne i en enda grå sörja. Döm om förvåningen när facit i själva verket består av intressanta smaker i balans. Men ingen rök utan eld, alkoholsmaken är ändå framträdande, åtminstone något är som det ska i det ryska imperiet.

Silvan7 (738) - Samarate, ITALY - NOV 18, 2014
Bottle @ home. Marrone scuro, leggermente velata. Schiuma beige fine ed abbastanza persistente. Aroma mediamente intenso, tostato, di caffè e cioccolato, lieve affumicatura da torba. liquorosa, ma solo in maniera lieve. Gusto abboccato all’ingresso, cioccolato, caffè, e torba sono ben amalgamati. Mediamente amaro il finale. sia da luppolatura che per via della tostatura. Abbastanza rotonda, piuttosto calda, non molto carbonata e decisamente corposa, piena. Equilibrata.

kaups (29) - ESTONIA - NOV 13, 2014
Bottle @De Tolly joogipood, Tartu, Estonia. Pours with huge light brown head. Aroma of slight liquorice, chocolate, roasted malt. First taste I feel is alcohol, wich is bad. Then there are dark chocolate, liquorice, vanilla, a hint of smoke and a dry, bitter coffee finish. Not as good as expected.

SamTheBarrel (486) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2014
500ml brown bottle labelled "Winter Imperial Stout", poured into a snifter glass. Appearance is brownish black with a large frothy light brown head, that reduced quickly leaving some lacing. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, lemon and orange zest. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, muscovado, orange and lemon zest. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is full bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. Overall a delicious beer, but for an Imperial Stout it is not as strong, roasted and bitter as I had expected.

FunkyF (106) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2014
Flaska från SB. Mörkt brun med lite skum. Väldigt torr och tunn för att vara en russian imperial. Spritig utan att kroppen balanserar upp det.
