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 ibus and bottle conditioned. We hope you have as much fun drinking it as we did making it. Please share with another and drink wisely.

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.

blankboy (7521) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2011
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.

[4013-20110930] 1pt9floz bottle. Sweet roasty aroma. Black body with a medium-lasting dark brown body. Sweet charcoal breadcrumbs and coffee ground cigarette flavour. Full body is overpoweringly roasted. Interesting to sample, just not into it tonight. (7/3/6/3/15) 3.4

portableparty (2331) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Bottle to snifter. Pour dirty oil black with a tan redish foamy head that fades to a creamy sticky film that shows lacing. Aroma is sweet and malty with some mild coco and soy ( the only thing that is not awesome!) Taste is awesome bitter hops coco and creamy roasty malts with soy and some anise in the mix. Palate is full rich creamy and finishes sticky and dry. This is a definite must try! Very good offering, and will buy again for $10.00 a bottle!

jercraigs (10210) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2011
2011-09-30. Black body with a small brown head. 4+ Interesting aroma, roasty with a bit of anise like herbal character. 7+ Flavour is similar, rich dark malt, not quite anise like character, light bitterness balances it. Dry dusty finish. 7+ Smooth medium to full bodied palate. 4+ Pretty solid well made stout, but I am not particularly in the mood for it. Bottle, about six months old, via trade with Fata2683
