Throwback Thursdays: Mikhail
Every Thursday we're selecting an archive beer from the cellar to put on tap!
Mikhail (2018 Stone Totalitarian Imperial Russian Stout aged in bourbon barrels w/ Espresso Beans)
Intense coffee characteristics abound from both the dark malts and the espresso, while rich caramel-like and vanilla 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.
