Samuel Adams Imperial Series Ale, Imperial Stout
Samuel Adams Imperial Stout is our take on the traditional Russian Imperial stouts first brewed by 18th century English breweries for the Russian Imperial Court of Catherine II. This beer is intense, black and sturdy enough that it could have made the long journey from Boston to St. Petersburg and still amaze the Empress. Imperial in stature and bigger than your average stout, Samuel Adams Imperial Stout is a colossal beer. You'll first discover its color: dark as a moonless night. Then comes the cappuccino colored head and lively aroma; still only the beginning of this extreme drinking experience. Finally, you'll arrive at the massive flavor of this beer, which combines the rich flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, and anise. Our Samuel Adams Imperial Stout is one of our brewer's favorites, and we are excited to share this intense brew with craft beer lovers.
