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.

Acid303 (674) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - DEC 17, 2015
35.5cl bottle, served in Snifter. Pours black with small lasting tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, dark chocolate, dried fruits and hints of smoke. Taste is coffee, dark chocolate, biscuit and a slight touch of smoke. Very well balanced, and the aftertaste has a substantial amount of hops along with the roasty notes. Full body, perfect carbonation. That’s one of the best (if not the best), normal Imperial Stouts I’ve ever had. What a pleasure!

Holmen1 (5868) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2015
Flaske (batch 472) fra Vinmonopolet Verksgata, hjemme (på perm fra SUS): Viskøst siger den ut av flaske og danner et fint lysebrunt skum som holder seg. Dette er snadder, mørk konfekt av beste merke, fyldig så det holder, lekkert balansert og med en bitterhet som kompletterer inntrykket elegant. Lang, portvinsaktig og varmende avslutning. Jeg legger en ny kubbe på peisen og lener meg tilbake i godstolen. Den rette forberedelsen til morgendagens angiografi.

Heavy aroma of chocolate and coffee. Taste is predominantly sweet chocolate that coincides well with a touch of bitter coffee in the aftertaste. Full body, soft carbonation. A good one!
