COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
How much grain can we get in our mash tun? This is a question that has haunted our brewery from the beginning. How do we find out? Let’s make a Russian Imperial Stout for this year’s North, our winter seasonal. So enjoy this huge stout, once popularized by Russian tzars and their families, while taking refuge from the cold outside. Imagine streams of black and roasted barley cascading down to the brewery floor during the sparge, and the groans of mechanical rakes trying to cut through the grain bed. How much grain can we get in there? The answer, my friend, is in this bottle.

Bomber, bought in Oregon. Rich roasted malt aroma with notes of bittersweet chocolate and a bit of coffee. Pours dark brown with a thin light brown head that has some retention and lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt flavors with bittersweet dark chocolate flavors and has a full body and a thick mouthfeel. Finishes smooth and dry with a touch of bitter coffee joining the other flavors with the roasted malt lingering on the palate nicely. Very nice stout!

Fatehunter (2615) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 6, 2015
Pours a finger and half of tan head on a black body. The aroma is a wonderful blend of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, licorice and milk. The taste is creamy, toasted malt, cocoa, coffee and only the slightest hint of alcohol. The texture is soft and smooth. This is an awesome beer.

Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 5, 2015
The nose is the heaviest grain I can imagine. Like being stuck under an avalanche of sacks of malted barley in a dusty attic. You scream, you plead for help but it’s overwhelming; you are pinned down. It’s the same in the Louth. Books grain. Original for sure, a little more european.

SG111 (2034) - New York, USA - MAR 7, 2015
On tap at Bier Stein, Oregon. Pours black with small tan head. Aroma is very roasted malt character, almost smokey. Bit of coffee. Flavor is similarly roasted, chocolate sweetness. Slight coffee finish. Nice full body on it.

3.6
maekchu (4058) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 12, 2015
Tap at the brewery. Barrel-like nose, but apparently it is not barreled. Chocolate nose, mild and pleasant. Black, thin head. Again a bourbon-like initial, overripe dates, a light phenolic note. Hopped with Cascade .... Lightly warming stuff.
