Here Comes the IRS: Two Versions of 2015 Stone Imperial Russian Stout Released Today
Monday, March 23, 2015
Each spring, craft beer enthusiasts actually look forward to encountering the IRS--Stone Imperial Russian Stout, that is. A rich, hearty beer that emphasizes the roasty, chocolaty essence of dark malts, it stands out from Stone Brewing Co.'s typically hoppy stock, with a smooth, velvety body that's tasty when fresh, yet also perfectly suited for long periods of cellaring. And there is more to look forward to this year: As part of Stone's "Odd Beers for Odd Years" program (AKA another excuse to brew something new and creative), the California-based brewery is releasing a version infused with tea and spices, 2015 Stone CHAI-SPICED Imperial Russian Stout, alongside the classic version of this annual release. Starting today, the pair will begin arriving in 22-ounce bottles and on draft at bars, retailers and restaurants in markets where Stone beer is sold.
