Reviews for: Imperial Extra Double Russian Stout

From: Harveys

ABV: 9.5%

Quality Ales Rating:9.50 from 1 reviews

 
From: Sigmund - 395 Rank: Colonel Barrel
Rating: 9.50
 
Cask conditioned at the 32nd Cambridge Beer Festival, as Harvey’s Double Extra Russian Stout. Also available bottle conditioned. ABV was 9.5%. Gravity dispense. Pitch black colour, low head. LOVELY complex aroma, surprisingly fruity: Plums, cherries, oranges. Roastiness, oak and cigars too. Flavour is extremely roasty and bitter, but also elements of oak and dark fruits. Warming mouthfeel, as expected from a 9.5% ABV beer. The roasty and bitter aftertaste lasts forever, making it difficult to move on to another beer. Belongs in the top division of beers.
