2016 Stone ESPRESSO Imperial Russian Stout aged in bourbon barrels

Imperial Stout
13.5%

Stone Imperial Russian Stout is a thick, rich and sinful beer that’s heavy on the palate and massively aromatic with notes of anise, black currants, coffee and roastiness.

Cellar Notes

Intense coffee characteristics abound from both the dark malts and the espresso, while rich caramel-like and vanillin notes from the bourbon barrel aging adds layers of complexity, a touch of sweetness and a vibrant dark fruit finish.  Since this is an unusual take on our traditional imperial Russian stout, “Mikhail” pays homage to Mikhail Bulgakov, whose novel The Master and Margarita is considered the foremost of Soviet satires.
