Russian Imperial Stout |  10.50% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/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.

A- 750ml poured to a wide goblet with a deep black, thick body. A light mocha head fills the glass to one finger and falls to a frothy island and thin ring. Decent head retention and moderate spotty lace.

S- Roasty and raisiny notes come on strong with intensity. Ashy burnt grains, dark chocolate, caramel, dark fruits and slight alcohol. Just dark and burnt all around.

T- Packs a hefty punch of dark grains delivering dark chocolate, burnt cereal, charcoal, heavily caramelized sugars, molasses, nutty and licorice notes. Raisins come on in the finish with some earthy hops.

MF- Thick bodied sips with creamy and a slight chewy consistency. Silky medium carbonation finishing with a deep roast bitterness.

Very dark burnt grains combine with a helping of raisiny dark fruits to punch the palate. Not a game changer but something I would enjoy again. A solid RIS but a hard style with many excellent brews.
