Empires come and go,but the beers remain behind. A favorite in the court of Katherine the Great and brewed to this day, Russian Imperial Stouts are some the richest and boldest (as any good empire should be!) beers around. We brewed our take with seven varieties of malt, three different hops and Belgian dark candi syrup.
The history of the bible and religion is indeed the struggle of good vs. evil. Our Serpent’s Stout recognizes the evil of the dark side that we all struggle with.
This is a massively thick and opaque beer that begs the saints to join the sinners in their path to a black existence.
Pours dark and thick, with a creamy mocha-colored head and aromas of roasted malts, dark chocolate and french roast coffee.
From Sweden's leading craft brewery, in operation since 1996. This hearty dark ale is roughly modeled on the big, satisfying stouts once brewed in England for travel to Russia and the court of the Czar.
The brewery is named for the owner's wandering, story-telling uncle who made his home in the United States for quite a while, but in the end came back to Sweden to stay. Nils Oscar is really a brewery and a farm, where the whole grains are harvested, malted, and painstakingly fashioned into tasty brew.
The basic idea behind this beer originated while making Xbeeriment #44. The brewers thought "What if we took it further?" So they decided to go for it, and created an Imperial Stout made with 5 different kinds of malt, including substantial amounts of peat smoked malt and roasted barley. They also used 3 different hop varieties and then added a 4th variety for dry hopping (and good measure). Finally it was bottled unfiltered, and then conditioned and left to mature in the bottle for 2 months before being released.
Devil's Brew and the Danish Atheist Society have entered into an unholy alliance, and the result is 'Godless' - an ale brewed entirely without superstition. To exercise social responsibility, Devil's Brew donates one Danish Crown to the Danish Atheist Society for each bottle sold.

Pours a dark black, is crowned with the densest and most creamy light brown head. Coffee and chocolate tones are very clear, but they come exclusively from the malt, while the aroma is full of vanilla.
