COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Just one wooden barrel of this beer was produced. The beer is Stone Imperial Russian Stout, and it was aged for about a year in a used bourbon barrel. From that wooden cask, we were only able to keg up very little. Expect to see the next appearance of this at the Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens after it opens early this summer.

Growler (from notes 09/11). Pours oily jet black with a small tan head; served at 55 degrees The aroma has dark chocolate, roast, espresso, bourbon, vanilla and a hint of anise. The flavor was a decadent blend of far chocolate, roasted malts, espresso, bourbon, vanilla and a hint of anise. Very smooth, full bodied, carries the anvil quite well. I had this a few months earlier with a friend and was equally impressed. I think this is a bit better than the base.

From trade. 500 ml bottle as Fyodor’s Classic, 2014 Series, Batch No. 3 (2013 RIS. Pours pitch black with a small mocha head on top. Beautiful aroma of anise, vanilla, roast, bourbon, oak, some chocolate. Oh yea. Reminds me a bit of Black Note. Flavor is roast, bourbon, dark fruits, oak, chocolate, anise, light booze, and long lasting vanilla. Really beautiful finish on this one with definite whiskey tones. The mouthfeel is medium--only slightly lacking in body in the style and would love to see the thickness ramped up a tad--with low plus carbonation and a smooth bourbon vanilla warmth down the throat. Really nice, and improves and thickens a bit as it warms. Make sure to let it sit outside the fridge for a but before drinking.

Fyodors bottle pour black with tan head. Aroma is rich roast, chocolate, oak, and bourbon. Taste is great bitter roast with a balance of oak and bourbon. a bit of alcohol on the finish, tasty, but probably not top 50 worthy.
