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.

Sticky but frigging delish. Thick almost syrup like, with a descent sized off white head. Aroma of bourbon, pitch black chocolate, some caramel and burnt malts. A tad on the burnt side flavorwise but still spectacular.

On tap at Flying Saucer during the Stoned for Six Days. Pours a very dark brown with a medium creamy white head with decent spotty lacing. The aroma is a sweet roasted malt with cherry, vanilla, chocolate and alcohol. Thin mouthfeel with a roasted malt chocolate and sweet finish. Alcohol present but not overpowering. Enjoyed this one, a very impressive Imperial Stout from Stone. 800th Rating!

Tap at Blind Tiger. Poured a rich chocolate black/brown with an inviting beige head. Bourbon malt nose. Nicely carbed. Malts attack but the barrel takes the flavor then the malt chocolate vanilla back it up. Sweet then nicely bitter.Quite delicious.

Had at RBWG 2010. Huge bourbon barrel characteristics on this - lots of coconut, vanilla, oak, tannins, etc. The flavor is surprisingly mild, lots of wood character but the stout is pretty subdued. It still works, though, because I love bourbon.

RBWG’10 cheers to Diego for sharing the growler. pours deep black, mocha head. Aroma loads of chocolate goodness, barrel and lots of booze and bourbon. Flavors, bourbon is medium not as present as aroma, deep chocolate malts presence and mouthfeel, warming bourbon finish with a lingering cocoa power/chocolate finish. This is tasty, easy to drink and loaded with bourbon yum,

Handbottle.
[ Thanks to yespr for bringing it to Denmark. ;O) ]. Clear dark black color with a very small, virtually none lacing, fully diminishing, light brown head. Aroma is heavy malty, roasted, caramel, chocolate, bourbon, light licorice. Flavor is heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, bourbon, light licorice notes. Body is medium to full, texture is creamy, carbonation is soft to flat, finish feel is light to moderate alcoholic - bourbon. Very nice ;O)) [20100303]

Pours dark black with small tan head. Bourbon, sweet malt and wood on the thick palate. This is a very smooth beer and well balanced for the complexity of its flavors of chocolate vanilla and very sublte bourbon.
