COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The ancient legends that abound the Russian Imperial Stout of yore are filled with tempestuous romance, sinful thievery, and scurvy, too. So highly regarded was this historic recipe, the Russian Kings tried to keep it all to themselves. They failed. Today we bring you our own dastardly dark version, with a rich and roasty aroma, notes of plum and port and a velvety texture so luscious it just might make a grown man weep.

Pitch black with a small, creamy, cappuccino head. Good retention. The nose is a marriage of fudge and toasted tree nuts almonds and pistachios. Full-bodied with medium carbonation. The flavor furnishes a boatload of roasty bitterness flanked by lighter, sweet notes of caramel and chocolate.
