Stout - Russian Imperial | 13% ABV (Imported from Russia)
Ivan is an unusual beer brewed in the style of "Russian Imperial Stout". This is a very strong, powerful and dark top-fermented beer, which was once very popular in Tsarist Russia. The beer was made by English brewers specifically for the royal court of Catherine the Great. Hence the words "Russian" and "imperial". This beer has a high initial density and high alcohol content, is heavily hopped, and contains a fair amount of dark malts. All this creates a complex drink, which only improves with aging. Imperial stouts some time ago almost went out of production all over the world, but in recent decades there has been an unprecedented boom of this truly royal drink. Their version of imperial stout, besides a hefty dose of dark malts, contains many special malts - whiskey malt (six-row barley smoked on peat), peat brewing malt and Belgian brown malt. This adds intriguing notes to the thick, dense taste and coffee aroma. It goes well with chocolate desserts, as well as dishes cooked on charcoal.
