Russian Imperial Stout
It’s time again for that wonderful liquid food known as the Imperial Stout! First brewed all over Great Britain for Russia’s Imperial Court. With nearly twice the ingredients as our normal stout, it is roasty and velvety smooth with lots of alcoholic complexity.

(Served in a snifter)
A- This beer pours a jet black body with no sign of carbonation and a thin ring of tan foam around the glass making up the head.
S- The full aroma of charred roasted malt has a slight earthy note to it.
T- The taste is a full inky black roasted malt has a soft earthy quality and a banana phenolic quality that grows just a bit as it warms. There is a big bitterness from malt that lingers after each sip.
M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with no alcohol heat.
D- This beer is big and inky in malt but not really that complex and nothing is there to balance the big blackness of the hops.
Serving type: on-tap
