COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Russian Imperial Stout
Velik kao Rusija, raskošan kao palača, kompleksan kao dvorske intrige i carski moćan, pivski stil Russian Imperial Stout nastao je kao ljubavna izjava carici Katarini Velikoj. Zavedeni istim stilom skuhali smo pivo s pozamašnom količinom alkohola i bogatih čokoladnih i kavastih aroma prženih sladova. Baš carski!

As big as Russia, as lavish as a palace, as complex as court intrigues and as mighty as a Tzar, the Russian Imperial Stout beer style originated as a love statement to Empress Catherine the Great. Seduced by that very style, we brewed this beer with a hefty amount of alcohol and rich chocolate and coffee aromas from dark malts. Truly Imperial!

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Solidno napravljen Imperial Stout. Tijelo je malo tanje ali aroma je fina , čokolada, kavica.. Okus fin, slatkast i zbog tanjeg tijela likerast. Alkohol od 10% je fino uklopljen. Čestitam 'kuharu' na ulasku u Carski dvor! :)

From bottle. Beige creamy head, black body. Aroma is chocolate, prunes, mollasses, some sweetness and coffee. Taste is roasty, chocolate, coffee with some sweetness. Ends bitter with nice roastiness. Velvety on tongue, full, can't feel the alcohol except nice warmth. Classic imperial stout. 8-4-8-5-16

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2017 The aroma of this beer is strong that is made of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. This black beer has a medium caramel colored head. The taste is very well balanced between alcohol, sweetness and bitterness. This taste is rich. It's made of roasted malt, chocolate, toffee, coffee, dark fruits, nuts and cocoa. It's medium sweet and medium bitter with a bitter finish. Soft carbonated and very smooth. Overall: a very nice looking beer with a strong aroma and rich taste.

Bottle, 330 ml and tap at Tolkien's and Veliki Tolk. Pours black with medium beige head. Strong roastiness, dark chocolate, some coffee, quite dry and bitter. Fine carbonation. Medium to full bodied. Not my type of impy atm but well executed.

jfric (24) - Ormož, SLOVENIA - DEC 4, 2017
Pours a chocolate brown body, some red shades with a cocoa head. Aroma of a chocolate liquor, red wine and berries. Tastes of chocolate, nuts, milk, berries, oak wood (kind of wiskey like) and coffee, with the latter two extending in the aftertaste. Starts malty, middle brings in hoppy flavours which fade away in the moderate bitter finish, Full body with a lighter and sticky texture, with soft CO2 and very noticable alcohol.

24.10.2017 (pilsner glass, 330ml bottle) Smell: Roasted malts, floral, caramel // Look: Charcoal, fizzy, slimy consistency // Taste: Explosion of milk chocolaty roasted-maltiness riding over alcohol notes, slightly metallic, candy, apple -- touch of herbal hops, coffee, woodiness -- bittersweet dry aftertaste -- vanilla and milk choco // Head: Very small and non-lasting, cherry-brown, zero lacing // Mouthfeel: Good strike of carbonation, syrupy consistency // Overall: Fantastic stout with a whiskeyish vibe, every sip is very satisfying and is really drinkable considering its high %. Definitely worth the price. The apple actually kind of helps counter the heaviness imo. //
