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.

Bottle from Bevmo. Ticks all the boxes. Sweet start, with bitter notes taking over for a long finish. Chocolate, vanilla, and liquorice notes.

Opaque black color with a brilliant head of tan foam. Complex aromas and flavors of rich plum, black licorice, semi-sweet dark cholocate, subtle molassesses, caramel, burnt sugar, and some light coffee roast. Pleasant alcohol warming after the finish.
