2013 Stone Imperial Russian Stout Aged in Bourbon Barrels
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.
This profoundly flavorful beer will overwhelm all but the most stalwart beer fanatics with its level of intensity. Rich coffee, bitter and milk chocolate flavors abound, while dark charred oak, rich vanilla and caramel from the bourbon barrels synergistically elevate and further enhance the ultra-intense flavors of the original beer. The name we chose for this heady creation, “Fyodor’s Classic,” is a tip of the hat to Fyodor Dostoyevsky, one of the greatest, most influential novelists of Russia’s Golden Age.
