Amager 10 year anniversary beer - The Mobster Series

Dario Daddano’s path to fame and fortune had not always been an easy one. To rise to be the undisputed head of the Chicago Outfit required a great deal of tactical skill and smooth talk. And when that was not enough Dario was known and feared for letting his Thompson Annihilator do the talking – 900 rounds a minute. His temper was known to be as dark as his Calabrian complexion. However, very few people knew that prohibition had ignited an interest in Dario. An interest only his wife Marianna and a handful of his closest family members knew of: Dario had started home brewing. In the club with the boys he would be drinking Canadian moonshine, but he missed his beer terribly. Also, he was growing tired of the mobster life with its constant quarrels. So, when a Russian friend from an associated gang told him about a style of beer that he used to drink back in his cold and miserable country, Dario was instantly curious. A beer designed to be rich and warming for those bone chilling Saint Petersburg winter nights. So, in the kitchen of Dario’s South Side Mansion, this unlikely duo happened to create what was probably the first Russian Imperial Stout ever brewed in Chicago. A beer so rich, powerful and delicious that it simply could not be kept a secret for long. Quickly thereafter Dario retired as Don, only happy to pass on responsibilities. Instead he opened Daddano & Dadolnikov Brewing Company with his Russian friend; thus effectively being one of the true pioneers of American craft brewing.

alteregoo (1495) - Kalisz, POLAND - AUG 9, 2017
Obfita, drobna, brązowa piana, długo pozostająca na powierzchni smoliście czarnej cieczy. W aromacie bogactwo pralin, szwajcarskiej czekolady, mocnego espresso i rodzynek w rumie. Smak równie intensywny co zapach, słodki, kakaowy, truflowy, kawowy, palony... Przyjemny aftertejs w postaci porto, rodzynek i likieru karmelowego. W kontrze solidna, tytoniowa goryczka i przyjemne rumowe rozgrzewanie. Niskie wysycenie, pełne, dość gęste i wyklejające w odbiorze.
Konkretny, intensywny, ale i ułożony RIS - podwójne zacieranie jak widać warte zachodu... Jeden z najlepszych RISów nie BA - dla mnie "zwykłego" Speedway Stouta wciąga nosem!

Bottled. Pours black with a large brown head. Aroma of roasted malt coffee, dark chocolate and some licorice. Sweet flavor that ends up being more dry and slightly bitter. Medium to full bodied, oily to creamy texture and soft carbonation. An excellent Impy.

Cunningham (8069) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2017
Amazing how a heavy beer like this can be so easy drinkable, and yet tasty and powerful. Solid stuff!
Coal black color with a thick fine beige head. Solid lacing. Lovely mellow aroma. Full body and a smooth carbonation level. Balanced sweetness. Chocolate, coffee, toffee, molasses and some licorice dominated the flavor in my mouth.
