Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Duhast500 on 01-18-2009

Imperial in stature and bigger than your average stout. This colossal stout was inspired by those created by 18th century English brewers for the Russian Imperial Court of Catherine II. The special malts in this intense and massive brew delivers rich flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, and anise.

Finally drinking a bottle I’ve have in the fridge for a few years. This pours a pitch black color with a slight brown head. The aroma is filled with coffee, toffee, and robust tones. The flavor is big, bold, and full of flavors. This is a sweet, robust beer that delivers in the flavor category. This brew has really held up over the years I’ve had it. Maybe a little bourbon aging with help this beer *hint hint Jim Koch*
