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.

Batch 3 Big bold and a tad bit boozy but the depth of flavors keep coming on strong as it warms. Dark as the ace of spades pretty much meet everything expected for this rarity. Cant lie I think Ale Smith brewery makes a better barrel aged Russian imperial however both are two heavy weight title contenders of which I would not take either lightly at all. both are superb The ABV on this seemed much stronger than 10.8%. Sure would like to get some more.

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.

Bottle, Fyodor’s Classic batch 3. Pours an inky black with a bubbly tan head. Big boozy aroma, of wood, bourbon, toasted malt, dark fruits. Taste is rich, of sweet malt, brown sugar, oak, and a big bourbon foundation. Lingering sweet bourbon and wood. Very nice.

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.
