COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally brewed in the early 19th century for export from Britain to the imperial court of Russias Catherine the Great, imperial stouts are characterized by their dark color & full body. This style features a rich, malty sweetness coupled with aggressive hopping (especially in American interpretations). Notes of dried fruit as well as roasted malt flavors are typically present.

rosenbergh (11463) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2016
22 oz bottle. Bottled on Feb 2015. 12.5%. Thanks Timo Aaah! Dark reddish brown color with a tiny tan head. Dark hops, sweetness, mild coffee, roasted malt and ashy dryness in the aroma. The flavor is hops, moderate bitterness, roasted malt, darkness and ashy dryness. Balanced, softly carbonated, rich and flavorsome. 12.5% is not that evident. Big beer indeed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

75 cl bottle (12.5% abv) @ Timo A. Bottled on 02/2015
Pours black color with a small head. Aroma is coffee and roasted malts, cocoa, faint vanilla, cola notes, licorice and maybe even some salmiac. Flavor is bitter malts with roast notes, licorice, coffee and faint syrup, mild hops too. Some alcohol burn at the end, not disturbing. Very nice and refined.

ljthiessen (1289) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
Bottle, 2015 expiry date. Black pour with a beige head. Aroma is roasty malt, a little sweet with lots of dark chocolate, some coffee and a hint of raisin. Taste is rich chocolate and coffee, hints of raisin and cherry, a little lighter body than expected but probably appropriate given this is a few years old. Really delicious, rich and balanced.
