COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg/nitro/bottle
A 10% decadent and indulgent Imperial Russian Stout. Brewed with a copious amount of dark malts, infused with coffee beans during the boil and after fermentation and aged on cacao nibs, vanilla pods and toasted oak chips. This opulent whirl of chocolate, coffee, dark malts and hops even rivals the most colourful of imperial Faberge eggs. Originally created to celebrate the Russian Royal Family, this is a fitting tribute with which to toast your own empire.

Nitro lepsze niż wersja z butelki. Ładny wytrawny kakaowy ris ze śliczną wzorową trwałą drobną pianą.

mgajdaczewa (2040) - Katowice, POLAND - APR 30, 2017
W aromacie ładne nuty czekoladowe, kakaowe, kawowe, czyli prosto, ale konkretnie. W smaku dominuje kakao, deserowa czekolada, kawa, lekka paloność, odpowiednia pełnia, średnia gęstość. Jest to dobre piwo, ktre raczej na nikim już wrażenia nie zrobi - bardzo w starym stylu.

Lambister (520) - FINLAND - APR 29, 2017
33cl bottle from Alko, Arkadia. This skilfully made brew reminds me of saying: The few who do are the envy of the many who watch. - Jim Rohn. Excellent stout with lots of strenght and rye notes.

19Michi38 (141) - Cracow, POLAND - APR 11, 2017
Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana brązowa, drobna, obfita, szybko opada, lacingu brak. Aromat mocno kakaowy, czekoladowy, lekkie alko wyczuwalne, ale w likierowym kierunku. W smaku z początku czekolada i kakao, po chwili kawa i paloność z ponownie lekkim alko. Goryczka średnia, nasycenie wysokie jak na risa, posmak palony i trochę kawowy.
