COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pozharnik is an intensely flavored Russian Imperial Stout infused with espresso that compliments its rich chocolate & roasted malt character. Pozharnik is guaranteed to warm a winter chill with its 8.1% ABV and dark fruit (raisin & plum) undertones. Notes of whiskey aromatics are brought on by the aging process in a “single barrel” whiskey cask.

Pozharnik is guaranteed to warm a winter chill with it’s increased ABV now at 10%. Undertones of dark fruit (raisin & plum) and licorice with low bittering hops make this vintage beer worthy of cellaring for many years to come. Finishing notes of whiskey aromatics are once again brought on by the aging process in a “single barrel” whiskey cask.

Bottle 100 cl. Courtesy of Tweety. Pours a clear dark brown with a tint of red and a smallish beige head. Some chocolatey dark malts in the nose. Medium body, very dark malts - but not overly burned. The finish however is massively bitter - probably from both malts and hops. 270310
