Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Wasatch on 12-24-2009

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: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Black colored beer with a small brown colored head.

Smells strongly of chocolate and caramel. Slight aroma of apple and toasted coconut. Sligt coffee aroma.

Starts out strongly tasting of chocolate and it is a little sweet. Mildly bittersweet taste. Coconut and caramel it tastes vaguely like a Mounds candy bar. Can't taste alcohol but it is sensed as a slight sting. Tasty yet mild tasting could pass for a Milk Stout.

Mouthfeel is full.

Overall a very tasty stout. Not quite a match for Stone RIS though.
