COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A most unorthodox imperial stout brewed with malted rye and aggressively hopped with four U.S. varieties to develop a depth of character like no other. Notes of rye, treacle, chocolate and espresso are joined together to create a crescendo of flavor. Full-bodied and warming. With an ABV of 10.9%, you will be doing a Kalinka dance after drinking this.

dmac (5087) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Bomber from Xroads. Poured a nice looking pitch black body with an average sized beige foamy head. Aroma of burnt malts, black toast, dark bakers chocolate, burnt marshmallow skins, cold old coffee beans. Flavor is similar but add in some vanilla extract. Medium to slightly fuler body, milky, tight bubbly carbonation.

Maxbier (759) - Maryland, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Dark stout color pour with creamy brown head. Dry earthy malt aroma with a hint of roast. Flavor is dry roasty crackers with some bitter hops. I like the contribution of rye malt in a stout.

Yorker (1932) - Herning, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2015
65 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are roasted malt, dark chocolate, and liquorice - with a roasted finish.

laiti (7789) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2015
65 cl bottle (9,2%)@ home. Arkma has fruity hopa and cocoa. Flabour has strong fruity hops, some cocoa and salty licorice. Feels like a black IPA - a balanced one I mean.

Hair6a11 (1442) - Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2015
Bottle; Pour is murky brown, with a two fingered, fine bubbled khaki head into this glass - It retains fairly well - with sticky lacing presence here. It reminds more of a european stout - with molasses, char, and grassy hop presence on the nose. The flavor profile is initial bittering, moving to cocoa, roast, and this thing fades - the tasting note of rye is relevant - but ultimately it fades to oblivion in my book, lacking the chocolate / caramel balance. Just No.
