2014 Stone Imperial Russian Stout Aged in Bourbon Barrels
A special batch of classic Stone Imperial Russian Stout, a rich, massively aromatic beer with notes of black currants, coffee and roastiness, was brewed to create this barrel-aged beauty.
The second edition of this profoundly flavorful beer will continue to overwhelm all but the most stalwart beer fanatics with its intensity. Rich coffee and bitter and milk chocolate flavors abound, while dark charred oak, rich vanilla and caramel from the bourbon barrels elevate and further enhance the heady flavors of the original beer. This dark gem's name is a tip of the hat to Fyodor Dostoyevsky, one of the greatest, most influential novelists of Russia’s Golden Age.
