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.

Magnificen imperial stout! Very rich. Complex flavor which includes what one expects in a fine stout including a licourice element. Pours opaque dark with a nice tan head. Very toasty and complex. Mild bitterness, mildly sweet and chocolatey. Perfect hop in the finish. Very impressive!

Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. Aroma of dark, chocolatey malts and alcohol.

In the taste, big roasted malts and booze notes. Some leather and sherry notes from oxidation, but mostly boozy and malty. Low hop bitterness at this advanced stage, but the toastiness is still big.

Full bodied, creamy and smooth. Overall this is a pretty good imperial stout, but is probably at its peak or perhaps its past that.

A: Pitch black with a one finger mocha colored head. Light spotty lacing.

S: Lots of espresso and bitter dark chocolate.

T: Strong black coffee, bitter dark chocolate, and roasted almonds.

M: Creamy and full bodied. There is almost a chocolate shake quality to this one.

O: I enjoyed this stout quite a bit. Very big flavors and enjoyable to drink.

Thanks to ChewyLewy for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and dark fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and char flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with nice cocoa and char qualities all around.
