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.

Mortlach (2347) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 22, 2016
On tap @Buskers Pub (Rome). Pours dark brown with a cappuccino head. Aroma of dark chocolate, milk, coffee, alcohol. Flavour is medium sweet, a bit unbalanced, with a light bitter end. Medium to full body, light carbonation. So so...

Drinkable. Less bitter than others I’ve had of the style, but it lacks anything to make it stand out.
