Squatters Outer Darkness ....

Friday night!  My beer will be an Outer Darkness, Russian Style Imperial Stout Ale, from Squatters Brewery.  The 1 pint, 9 ounce bottle shows 10.5% ABV and 65 IBUs.

This beer poured with a small, rich dark chocolaty head.  Beer color is very blackish with no light showing through the glass when held up to the light.  The aroma has cocoa, and that wonderful boozy stewed dark fruit note.  Full bodied.  Heavy, oily, smoky, a little boozy.  Dark fruits, caramel, cocoa, coffee, molasses.  Some underlying bitterness, but subtle.  A little alcohol warmth as it goes down.  Very nice!
