Emelisse Imperial Russian Stout (20L Keg)
This beer refers to an historical episode, in which the Russian Empress, Catherine the Great was able to get the deep, dark and heavy English stouts. The journey from England to Russia took a long time. Additional alcohol was therefore needed to ensure sustainability. Notes of black chocolate and coffee are no problem in this harmonious beer, the cane softens the bitter character.
Imperial stouts are usually extremely dark brown to black in color with flavors that are intensely malty, deeply roasted and sometimes with accents of dark fruit (raisin, fig) or milk sourness. The bitterness is typically medium and often the low sie of that. Imperial stouts are strong and often exceed 8% by volume.
