COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on the stout brewed by 18th century English brewers for the Russian Imperial Court of Catherine II. The special malted barley in this intense and massive brew delivers rich flavors like dark chocolate, coffee and anise.

Koelschtrinker (21492) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 7, 2011
Vollmundiger Antrunk, in dem das Malz zwar den Mittelpunkt darstellt, andere Aromen aber in passender Weiser zulässt. Hier sind bittere Noten zu nennen, die das Bierintensiver machen und von der sowieso wenig vorhandenen Süße weglenken, außerdem fruchtige Noten. Dann wird die Malzigkeit stärker, torfig-erdige Noten kommen hervor, die hintergründige Röstigkeit kommt dagegen erst im Abgang zur Geltung. Hier ist, trotz der Intensität, eine leichte Wässrigkeit erkennbar, über die auch die süßen Kaffeenoten nicht hinwegtäuschen können. 10/11/11/13/12/12

fiulijn (21274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle from The Liquor Collection, Honolulu, HI
Black color, with small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, with treacle, light liquorice and light oxidisation. Correct body structure, with flavor of roasted malt, some chocolate; smooth and a bit creamy, with light ending liquorice and pepper.
Not bad, quite big, but still unexciting.

harrisoni (19341) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2010
Bottle at ChrisO "I’m Trying to see the Stool" pre GBBF2010 tasting. Drinkable impy stout (which I do like, I like my impy stouts to make me want to drink it again), Good mild choc. Very drinkable.

mcberko (18981) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2010
12 oz. bottle, pours black with a tan head. Aroma of dark roasted espresso, roasted malt, dark chocolate and a slight hop bitterness. Flavour of coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malt - slight bitter finish, with the chocolate really settling in as a lingering aftertaste. Impressive.

3.2
Oakes (18873) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2009
Inky with a thin head. Strong burnt raisin nose with a light coffee and stinging alcohol. Has a nice soft, rounded body. Nice residual sugars - not to cloying. The burnt/roast character is perhaps a bit underdeveloped but the beer is balanced. Pleasant.

3.7

Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2009. Black color, brown head. Malty roasted aroma, cocoa, chocolate, tar, some licorice. Tar flavor, dark chocolate, burnt, some ash and cocoa. Dry roasted finish.

3.4

Dark almost opaque color, small brown head. Sherryish, roasted, a bit aged feeling in the aroma, Medium to full bodied. Licorice, sherry, toasted, burnt malts. Also aged feeling in the flavor. Black coffee in the aftertaste.

3.4
jtclockwork (17284) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 11, 2011
Bottle. Pours black. Tan head. Nose/taste of molasses, roast chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Touch of lactose. Body is on the thin side for an imperial. Decent all around brew.
