Commercial Description

Originally brewed for Russian Royalty in the early 18th century, this style was born of necessity. The porter which was originally ordered spoiled en route. In order for the beer to survive the trip from England to the courts of Russia, the hops and alcohol were dramatically increased. O’Dempsey’s Your Black Heart Russian Imperial Stout combines a silky mouth feel with a balance between sweet malts and bitter hops that pairs well with strong cheeses, dark chocolates and fine cigars. Truly a luxury befitting even your Royal Highnesss. Enjoy.

    [Best served in a Snifter]

    Pour was a deep dark black with an average sized (1-2 finger) medium brown creamy head and had fair lacing.

    The aroma was of burnt bread malts, a mild resin hop and a leathery yeast with notes of bitter-sweet chocolate, molasses, roasted coffee and had a pronounced alcohol presence.

    Taste was malty sweet and very lightly bitter with a mild notes of chocolate and molasses at first with a nice bitter strong coffee flavor, a hint of smoke and a strong alcohol finish. The flavor hung around for a long duration with the taste of coffee and alcohol left to settle on the taste buds.

    Mouthfeel was very full in body and dry yet creamy in texture with a soft carbonation.

    Overall a nice and strong flavored Imperial Stout with the coffee and chocolate flavors blending very well with the high alcohol finish.
