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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

pours out a medium viscosity of dark brown/black, into my New Belgium snifter. A 1/4 " tan puffy head floats on top of the impermeable black body. You can smell chocolate and a slight alcohol nose.Mouthfeel is very good,roasty, chocolaty, malty goodness. For $10 this is a good deal, 10.5% alcohol should age nicely, overall you couldn't go wrong here.

4.71/5  rDev +16.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

10.5% ABV. Bottling date of 03/27/2012

Appearance: Pours a pitch Abyss-black with a creamy, dark chocolate head to match. Aggressive pour gives me about a 1.5 inch head.

Aroma: Roasted barley dominates the nose. It turns into sweet black liquorice with a hint of star anise. Delectable aromas of creamy chocolate abound.

Taste and Mouthfeel: Malty sweet start that ends with a dry, roasted coffee-like finish. Has a nice kick at the end that alerts you of its strong alcohol presence, but isn't overwhelming. Has somewhat of a creamy mouthfeel. Medium carbonation with a full body.

Overall: Love it. A practically perfect Russian Imperial Stout.

Serving type: bottle
