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.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown, almost black, color with large brown head. Lacing is very good. Aromas of chocolate, molasses, roasted malts, and a slight grapefruit. Lively initial mouthfeel but then ends in a creamy, slick palate. Tastes of chocolate and malts, but then into a bitter finish with well-hidden hops. Good beer and one I will be enjoying again.

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep, drak brown, close to black. Roasted chocolate malt aroma is fairly strong and a little bready as well. One finger dark brown, chocolate colored head. Flavor is heavily toasted but sweet - dark chocolate and coffee notes dominate with a warming alcohol finish. A decent amount of flavor, but I’ve had more flavorful stouts. This can be a plus or minus depending on what you are going for, but also a bit thinner than some stouts. Nonetheless, an impressive offering from Sam Adams.

Bottle. Poured hard, off white tan head. Excellent duration. Dark brown to black in body color. Aroma is of alcohol and roasted malts, perhaps a slight chocolately undertone. Medium body, alcohol and roasted malts on the palate.

DocHop (278) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2009
Pours a very dark oily brown with a small light brown head. Very sweet almost fruity fudge aroma, The caramel, lightly roasted malts really dominate the smell. Wow, very sweet flavor for an Imperial Stout too. Molasses, chocolate flavors with very minimal roastiness. Pretty tasty. Nice smooth mouthfeel, maybe a little oily.

Lawger (275) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Rather muted in the beginning, then a reasonably dense aroma of coffee, japanese soy sauce, dark bread and dark chocolate. The palate is medium bodied, semi-sweet with a light bitterness. Slightly tame and lacking the kick of the best Imps.

Svart med ljusbrunt litet huvud. Inte jätteintensiv doft för att vara en stout, men den doftar sött med toner av choklad och kaffe. Smaken är frisk och syrlig med tydlig smak av kaffe och choklad. God men inte fantastisk

Flaske 0,33 liter, fundet i Fakta til 13 kr. En lækker sort sag fra Boston, lige når man hælder den op, bliver man positiv overrasket over at den er helt sort og giver et flot beige farvet skum som bliver liggende i en god rums tid, aromaen er af de gode ristede malte, lidt karamel, let røget og måske lidt tjære duft, den er også sprittet i duften, især i starten, god fylde i munden og jævn god smag i hele munden, den har en god konsistens og en holdbar eftersmag uden at blive for skarp, skal efter min mening nydes kold ca 5 grader. Sikke en god Stout og så for 13 kroner, mums.
