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.

Kita (858) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottled, 0.50l. Pours murky, almost black with medium sized creamy light brown head and fair lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, liquorice, dried fruits and alcohol. Taste starts with smooth and rich roasted malt and coffee, while following is sweet chocolate with alcohol notes. Mouthfeel is spicy and peppery with pretty heavy bitter finish and long aftertaste. Full body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Interesting herbal hoppy stout...

(Bottle): Pours almost black with red tinges, off white head. Aroma of roasted malt, liquorice, chocolate, molasses. Flavour of coffee, roasted malt, ash, chocolate, liquorice. A touch of bitterness and smooth on the palate.

TET (1431) - FINLAND - DEC 6, 2013
A black beer with a big, dense and beige head. The nose is roasted, coffee, strong milky sourness, some herbs and old lether sole. Not very sophisticated aroma. Taste is strongly roasted, coffee, nice sweetness, some lether and liquirice. The end is quite long, dry and roasted. Medium+ bodied, smooth carbonation, plesant to drink. Quite simple IS, not very exhilarating.

dresden (730) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 5, 2013
I think this bottle is a year old, I just realized I still had it. Sad. Deep brown witha tan head. Aroma of roast malt, ash. Taste is a nice smoky burnt malt, some creamy caramel, dark fruits. It’s a pretty nice beer.
