COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gold Medal @ Dutch Beer Challenge 2016 Smaak: Dikke vloeibare bonbon Aroma: Ervaren! Voor de adel in Rusland waren de stouts en porters uit Engeland te zwak, ‘working class beer’, inferieur voor de hogere klasse. Daarbij zijn de Russen wel wat gewend aan de nodige percentages….. Dus moest het sterker en exclusiever. De Engelsen gehoorzaamden ;-) Keizerin Catharina ’de Grote’ (1762-1796) was verzot op de stijl. Dit type bier werd dan ook gedronken als Champagne en exclusiviteit. Natuurlijk kregen ze in moedertje Rusland dit bier niet met vanille, dat is alleen weggelegd voor de huidige generatie Tsaren en Tsarina’s ;-) Moutsoorten: Pale Ale, Cara & Roostmouten Hopsoorten: Sorachi Ace Xtra: Madagascar Bourbon Vanille

Black with thick head. Aroma and flavour have a lot of vanilla sweetness. Some roasted malts. Light mocha. Slightly too carbonated. Lacks a bit of body and depth.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2017 Gedronken met Simon en Quinten. Goede typische imperial stout. Kleverig, zoet, licht bitter, koffie, toffee en een beetje grassig. Lekker spul.

Geproefd met Roelzie1986 bij de stadsbrouwerij te Eindhoven. Het is een zwart bier met weinig schuim. Het heeft een zoete geur. De smaak is gebrand mout, caramel en zoet.

Taste is fairly sweet, medium bitter with a medium dry finish. Notes of soaked wood, roasted malt, vanilla, slight tiramisu, nuts, caramel, dark malt.

3.9
vami (594) - Poznan, POLAND - MAY 25, 2017
[Euro Beer Swap thanks to MonsterMagnet] Pours pitch black with creamy tan head. Aroma is of fennel (Sorachi), molasses, licorice, vanilla and chocolate. Taste is mainly vanilla, chocolate and a lot of licorice. Alcohol is warming but not disturbing. Full body, dense texture. Very good beer with an interesting taste profile. Alcohol gets more intrusive in time.

3.8
