Northern Monk: Black Forest Strannik Can 10% [330ml]
They say "Imperial stout descended from the strongest, "stoutest" porter brewed in Britain in the 18th century, which found favour with the Tsar of Russia in St. Petersburg, where it was believed to have earned its "imperial" title. Our take is a beer of simple means in search of enlightenment - just like a pilgrim ("strannik" in Russian). The espresso roast and chocolate character are provided by four classic roasted malts, complemented by a rounded bitterness and floral, spicy notes from British hops. The body is medium-full, and the finish is medium-dry with hints of dried berries and slight alcohol warmth."
We say "This is a sweet Imperial Stout, with the sweetness coming from flavours of chocolate, raisins and roasted malts. Although it is predominantly sweet it is backed up by a bitter coffee flavour."
