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.

Bottle from a trade, thanks rlgk. Pour is pitch black with a small espresso head. Nose has light bourbon, roast, tar, soy, licorice and some light coffee. Taste is alike, light bourbon, smooth, salty licorice, fresh coffee, oily, ash with a dry finish. I appreciate the subtle bourbon notes on this one.

Vestergaard (1004) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2015
50cl bottle with huge thanks to Bursprak!! Pours an oily pitch black with a medium sized, brown, short lasting head. Aroma has just lots of bourbon! Coco nut, butter, vanilla, lots of dark dried fruits, but also some more fresh, dark berry like fruits, big, dry chocolate aroma, coffee, slight licorice and quite a bit of roast! Taste is very sweet up front, but has lots of dry notes with both a slightly burning alcohol, dry bourbon character, dark, dry chocolate and a huge vanilla and buttery bourbon finish. Body is very full, but lots of dry notes balances it out greatly! lots of heat as well. Medium low carbonation.

2014 Fyodors bottle. Damn fine beer, but its just a bit strong for 8 am on a Saturday morning. WEll concocted with lots of anise and a touch of whiskey. My only complaint is that its just too sweet. Looking forward to a shot of insulin. Kompai mates

Shared bomber to snifters. The usual huge roasted deliciousness that is Stone IRS lies beneath a sticky vanilla bourbon barrel sweetness.
