Putin tasting notes
Ugly Duck’s Putin pours black with creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, some alcohol, caramel sweetness, coffee and dark chocolate notes. Sweet light roasty malty taste, dark chocolate, licorice, nice milky creamy texture, hints of vanilla. Very smooth feel. Full body, creamy smooth texture, light carbonation, malt dry coffee, and some sweetness in the finish.
Imperial Stout is a dark beer, ranging from dark brown to pitch black, and a well-formed head. Aroma and flavour tend to be rich and complex, with presence of roasty malts or dried fruits and touches of coffee, caramel or chocolate. Hop flavour can be from medium to high. Imperial stout is a good choice for barrel-aging, making the aromas and flavours more balanced and smooth.
