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.

Dark as hell without a lot of head. First chocolate milk then heavy booze. Bourbon or brandy aroma and flavor. As it warmed up to the room temperature the vanilla comes out more and more. Really smooth.

DesertDevil (526) - Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2014
500 mL bottle (2014 Fyoder’s Classic). Hot, bourbon-heavy aroma, but the booziness doesn’t overpower the rest of the nose, which includes anise, dark chocolate syrup, light oak, and caramelized molasses. Pours a clear super-dark brown. Delicious taste of dark chocolate, burnt biscuit, moderate aged bourbon, woody oak, some vanilla bean, and a bit of cocoa powder to finish. Slightly chalky and dry palate with a thinner body than the normal IRS. A damn-fine barrel-aged beer right now (April 2014), but I’m curious to see how it develops with some cellar time.

Peacehammer (621) - California, USA - APR 18, 2014
labeled as Fyodors Classic. 2014 release, opened 4/12/14. Thick, oily black pour. Fast dissipating aroma. Huge vanilla oak bourbon on the nose. Tons of caramel ,Oak and bourbon all over the aroma. Very thick. Incredible bourbon tones. Oak, vanilla, caramel, some toasted coconut type sweetness. On top of the aggressive dark chocolate of the normal IRS. Simply amazing.

50 cl. (Fyodor’s Classic, 2014 Series, Batch #3) Une robe profondément noire et une tête kaki qui se transforme rapidement en anneau. Le nez est très impressionnant. La définition même du mot cohésif, si je peux m’avancer sur ce terrain bien subjectif. Donc, une explosion regroupée de réglisse noire, de bourbon, de biscuits au chocolat, de vanille, de raisins et de noix de coco grillée envahissent mes narines et permettent à mon hypophyse et mon hypothalamus de sécréter une très grande quantité d’endorphines. J’adore cette sensation. La bouche est autant belle avec ses malts brûlés, son eau-de-vie caramélisée, ses tannins, ses grains de café fort, son chocolat, sa vanille grillée, sa mélasse épicée et ses sucres résiduels contrôlés. L’effet des composés opioïdes peptidiques endogènes ne s’estompe pas. Je suis dans une zone confortable et chaque gorgée me réconforte dans ce bonheur qui cherche toujours la fuite. En bouche, le liquide est bien rond. Cette sensation soyeuse est plaisante. Les petites bulles explosives n’empêchent pas ma langue d’être longuement tapissée par ces saveurs complexes. La finale chocolatée reste longue, chaude de réglisse et lourdement poivrée par cet alcool qui est ici facilement identifiable mais aucunement regrettable. Un exemple, littéralement. Puissante mais élégante.

500 c&c from Bine & Vine. As 2013 Fyodor’s Classic. Pours dark brown/black with a slight tan head. Aromas of alcohol and dark malt. With Light bourbon/vanilla. Coffee. Arguably full bodied. Flavor is alcohol, chocolate, coffee, bourbon/vanilla. Mild heat burn. A bit harsh. Blast from the past.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a thick but transient tan head and a chocolate and bourbon aroma. There is an intense chocolate, coffee and treacle flavor with a dry finish and a slight alcohol burn.
