COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Welcome to the biggest beer Squatters Pub Brewery has ever made! A Russian Imperial Stout is one of the most intensely flavored beers a brewer can create. The combination of rich roasted barley, oak, molasses and licorice root combine to create an utterly unique and complex imperial stout experience. We had to mash in twice to get our starting gravity of 27 plato (1.108 specific gravity). We boiled 3.5 hrs to enhance caramelization and used molasses and licorice root at the end of boil. Outer Darkness is aged with oak, has 65 ibu’s and bottle conditioned. We hope you have as much fun drinking it as we did making it. Please share with another and drink wisely.

Nice beer. Let it warm some out of the fridge. Poured with a nice tan, foamy, frothy, thick head and some lace. Color is an opaque brown black. Aroma is fairly mild, roast, malt, leather, toffee. Flavor is similar to nose, bittersweet up front followed by a little carbonic tang. Finish is like flavor, balanced, with some alcohol warmth. Very nice

22oz bottle. Pitch black pour with some dark tan head. Nose is oak, anise, roasted malt, and chocolate - flavor is chocolately and slightly smokey with molasses. Pretty damn tasty Imperial Stout from Utah.

Bottle from kegs and barrels. Pours a black with a thin tan head. The aromas are roasted coffee, chocolate, liquorice. The mouthfeel is bitter, roasty and smooth with a heavy body. Very nice beer. Cheers!

Pours dark brown with a thick tan head. Roasted malt and cocoa flavors. A little bit of hop spice in the finish. Very thick and mellow. Alright.

kathouse (1877) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Black and opaque with a thin brown head. Smell of roast, vanilla, chocolate, and oak. Taste of black malt, licorice, and burnt toast. Finish is black and dry. A very good stout.

Bottle:   Yep, thats black, thin deep brown head, sticky lacing.   Strong roasted nose, a little acrid, otherwise some sweet soy, even some salty licorice.   On the tongue its very much the same.   Roasty, fairly smooth malt body, a little heat, a bit of husk like acridness, with some salted black licorice.   Has a decent hop profile as well, even a little green.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Solid example of an Imperial Stout.   A little different too in that I dont get salty black licorice in many stouts.   I bet another six months on this one and it would smooth out a bit, the hops not being as green.   Lingering sweet soy, fairly assertive too.   Very respectable.   Thanks Dallas for this beaut!

Thanks Douglas for this trade. Pours black with a brown thick head. On the nose chocolate, coffee, vanilla, raisins, dates and marshmallow. Taste, coffee, chocolate, caramel, raisins, dates and a touch of booze. Thick on the palate with a nice long semi sweet roasted bitterness.

Bottle [660ml] shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Pours a deep ruby/dark brown with an average size lasting frothy light-brown head. Nice aroma of roasted malt, light coffee, light leafy hops, some chocolate and just a hint of alcohol. Flavour has lots of leafy hops, roasted malt, coffee, some alcohol and a dry, bitter finish. Medium to full bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Very good stuff, I really enjoyed it.
