COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich roasty brew with a deep "espresso" character. Originally brewed for the Imperial Court in Russia, this stout is a warm festive drink made with the cold Russian Winters in mind. This complex stout is brewed with a combination of nine domestic and imported malts. Only the finest Pacific Northwest hops are used to provide the perfect balance in our award winning beer.

Esspresso, jerusalem almonds and cocoa nose. Brown sugar and big roasted cocoa notes are very predominate on the palate. Big rich mouthfeel with some mild astringency. Lingering roasted finish.

Someone brought this to a Blind tasting in NY, thank you whoever. This ended up being the first beer of the tasting so I think my rating might have been a bit reserved in preparation for all the Imperial Stouts we were about to consume. Aroma is hoppy, leafy, and only lightly roasty. Taste is again hops-centered (not overly hoppy, that just comes out most) with a regular Imperial Stout hiding somewhere behind that. A lightly slick mouthfeel and a small tan head.

Bottle. Probably an aged bottle. Aroma of some smokiness. Flavor is roasted / smokey, and some meaty flavor. A little bit of acidic coffee, with a slightly thin palate.

bitbucket (2166) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Bomber. Pours blackish brown that admits some light, thin brown head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, citrus and yeast. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Taste starts sweetly, with chocolate, roasty maly and coffee. A touch of sharpness in an otherwise nice espresso pine finish.

3.5

A medium bodied imperial stout. Black and low carbonation. Some roasted malt and a little bit sweet. Some chocolate. Medium quality for the style.
