COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Russian Imperial Stout has a very complex malt character showing layers of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt and finishes with an assertive bitterness from both dark malts and hops. For this batch, after fermentation was complete, we put the beer in a combination of Whiskey and Rum barrels. This aging process allows the beer to mellow a bit while adding layers of toasted coconut, vanilla, damp earthiness, and slight boozy character from the whiskey and rum still soaked into the wood of the barrels. This is a beer to sip and savor!

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours black with a dark tan head. Bourbon aroma. med + or full bodied. Flavor is very bourbon/vanilla with dark malt, and I think coffee. Maybe chocolate. Smooth. Think there’s no heat. Oak comes along after awhile. It’s malty, but not seemingly undry. Very nice.
