COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle & occasional keg,special
Gently crated by hand in Scotland, this Old World Stout perfectly recreates the imperial beers of years gone by; brewed to the traditional percentage of alc. 9.5% by vol. To avoid freezing during its journey across the Baltic Sea to snowy Moscow.
All full bodied taste, this opulent whirl of hops and malt even rivals the most colourful of imperial faberge eggs.
Originally created to celebrate the Russian royal family, this beer is a fitting tribute with which to toast your own empire.- See more at: http://www.brewdog.com/product/old-world-russian-imperial-stout#sthash.sIclAyxe.dpuf

bytemesis (7981) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Bottle, thanks to I honestly forgot who :/. Pours opaque black, medium tan head, dissipates to a ring with good lacing. Aroma is huge molasses, licorice, roasted malts, dark chocolate. Flavor is light plus sweet, medium bitter, roasty, molasses and baking cocoa, hints of anise. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Excellent old school stout, pure, not sweet and adjunct ridden.

Foffern (1805) - Bod, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2016
Bottle at home. Three year old bottle. The colour is deep dark brown to black with a small light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee beans, dark chocolate, smoke, leather, black currants and wood. Has a well-roasted flavour with ash, coffee beans, black currants and very dark chocolate. Has a slick and oily mouth feel, full-bodied, and a light to medium bitterness. A well-balanced and greatly roasted.

MrHangover (4356) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2016
Bottle. Pours a dark brown, blackish beer with a big bubbly tanned head on top. Aroma is rather roasty, hints of chocolate and a fragrance of booze. Flavor is mildly sweet, hints of coffee and chocolate, some roasty notes. A bit dull and mediocre, yet entertaining and no major flaws detected or anything. Just a very decent impy stout, nothing more in my book.
