COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chocolate truffles, cocoa, espresso coffee, burnt currants, the sweetness of a sherry - all come to mind when enjoying an Imperial Stout. A rich porter of English origin brewed to withstand the long voyage from London to Czarist Russia. The classic "Winter Warmer". Big, Strong, Malty Stout.

Uma Stout de respeito, apesar do teor alcóolico elevado, é bastante equilibrada, seu tom de chocolate esta de acordo com seu aroma defumado, perfeita para acompanhar um charuto ou cachimbo.

Chocolate nose, slight coffee, thick, opaque black, whiteish head, strong coffee notes, thick pallet, heavy mouth feel. Amazing beer, I like this more than the Stone Russian Imperial.

What a beer....perfect in almost every aspect, but it was a bit light in flavor. Pours a beautiful dark dark brown with a small head when poured quickly. Amazing that it is 10%. Wow! I was more than impressed with this beer. I will buy more of this in the future and re-rate it.

Bottle 750ml from Grain&Grape. Masterpiece, great imperial stout. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, vanilla, with hints of liquorice and alcohol. Taste is sweet and bitter, with long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Black, with a thin head.

Thanks to Dickinsonbeer for this beauty. The pour is onyx with a 2-finger brown head and layers of lace. The aroma is big roasty dark malt, figs, huge chocolate cyrup, some molasses, and hops. The taste is roasty dark malty, with a rich, sticky chocolate syrup element, plus molasses, figs, slight tobacco, and a hop bite that is definitely felt, and gets a bit bigger as it warms. The palate is rich, very creamy, very well balanced, on the sweet side initially, then it seems to shift gears and gain an Alpha Klausy hoppiness, while still maintaining the solid Impy Stout feel overall. This one is an outstanding example of this style.
