Living up to its name, this impy stout is intoxicating and full of character, with rich roasted malts and luxurious dark chocolate notes.
Look: Pours almost black with very slow forming off-white head and low carbonation.
Aroma: Powerful notes of dark chocolate, forest fruit and sweet warming bourbon.
Taste: Coffee and cocoa, rich syrupy bourbon, and some subtle spice and herbal accents.
Verdict: A smooth charismatic rascal. If it’s good enough for the Russian Queen, it’s good enough for us.
