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.

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.

Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Pours black, viscous & thick like motor oil with a leathery tan head that doesn’t form until a good 6 or 7 seconds after the hard pour. Comes & goes quick. Lovely aroma of thick, fat fudge & chocolate cake batter. The shit your grandma whips up for special occasions. Rich bourbon barrel warmth & a nice bit of spicy oak. Getting huge notes of coconut & vanillin from the barrel, too. The barrel aging is integrated exceedingly well. Brownie batter BOMB on the palate. Dark chocolate brownies, dense fudge, moderate black licorice, smooth bourbon, woody vanilla, dried & toasted coconut, charred oak, & a bit of roasted, ashy malt. Very small touch of dark prune sweetness. Finishes with mostly notes of bourbon lathered fudge. Thick & creamy body... This is great. Stone should really make this a yearly (or somewhat regular) release... Yum.

2014 vintage. Pours black and oily..thin Mocha head. Aromas of char, oak and bourbon. Nice mouthfeel...creamy...but hot! Roasted notes calm the bourbon and oak. Nice hop bitterness. ..finishes sticky with a clinging sweetness and big vanilla oak. Tasty.

stoutnick (818) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2015
February 2014 bottle. Black mild tan foam. Aroma is marshmallow, mild oak, bourbon, sweetness. Taste is sweetness up front, chocolate, prunes, bourbon, mild vanilla, dry finish. You can see the base beer coming through here. Full palate without being chewy, strong carbonation. Probably pound for pound the most solid bourbon barrel aged stout I’ve had. Lacks a wow factor nor is it extremely memorable but it very drinkable and well balanced.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 1, 2015
Bought at Liberty Station and consumed in Calgary. A bottle can be corked and last for 2+ days. Dark imperial stout with a hint of soy sauce. Aroma is big dark and beautiful with lots of dark fruit, molasses and unspiced Christmas. Smooth, dark, intoxicating nectar.

Sask89 (500) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 2, 2015
Fyodor’s Classic 2015 Batch 1. Pours pitch black with a creamy mocha head. Aroma is heavy in chocolate, coffee, and black liquorice. Taste is sweet and malty with a nice bitterness to balance it out. Full bodied and smooth and creamy on the palate with lively carbonation. A really nice imperial stout that I wish I could have aged for a year or two but unfortunately could not.
