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.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - APR 23, 2013
750ml bottle. Dark brown almost black with a small creamy tan head. Big aroma is bitter cocoa, licorice, molasses, black malt and alcohol. Flavor is roasty bitter black malt, licorice, chocolate, coffee and some alcohol presence. Fullish body with a soft, slick mouth feel. This one is very strong and bitter, lots of dark black malt. Im usually not a fan of black licorice but it works pretty good in this one.

portableparty (2320) - 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!

Bottle. This is a really smooth and burly imperial stout. Big roasted malts and lots of hop bitterness to balance the sweetness. Well done.
