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.

minutemat (4018) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2015
500ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is coffee and molasses. Taste is slick, flavoursome, lots of coffee, some peat and ash, subtle cocoa & liquorice. Proper Imperial Stout this, although an amped up 10% version would be quite nice too!
