2013 Stone Espresso Imperial Russian Stout Aged in Bourbon Barrels
Like the classic version, this Odd Year edition was brewed in the authentic, historical style, but with the addition of espresso beans, producing roasty bitterness and deep, rich coffee flavors.
Even after nearly a year in the barrel, intense coffee flavors abound from both dark malts and espresso, while rich caramel and vanilla flavors from the bourbon-infused oak add layers of complexity, a touch of sweetness and a vibrant dark fruit finish. Since this is an odd take on our traditional imperial Russian stout, Mikhail’s Odd pays homage to Mikhail Bulgakov, whose novel The Master and Margarita is considered the foremost of Soviet satires.
