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.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2014 Bottle courtesy of rlgk. Pours hazy black with a rather small blackish brown head that quickly dissipates while leaving some small trace on the glass. Smell is sweet and malty with roasted malts, burnt caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, dark chocolate, coffee, charred wood, moist soil, toasted nuts, hay, alcohol and liquorice fudge. Taste is sweet, tiny bitter and malty with roasted malts, burnt caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, charred wood coconut milk, dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, moist soil and alcohol. Mouthfeel is soft, round, silky, tiny boozy and near full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, burnt caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, charred wood, coconut milk, bourbon, dark chocolate, dark roast coffee and moist soil. Excellent! Very pleasant nicely executed barrel aged imperial stout. Prominent barrel treatment without it hiding the great base beer.

Beardaxe (199) - - OCT 13, 2014
Sweet boozy aroma. Hot finish but not disagreeable. Rich chocolate powder flavor. A little bland at times. Nice oily mouthfeel. Not as roasty as regular stone IRS. Fun, but nothing stands out. Doesn’t merit the work it might take to get one.

"2006 - a little past it’s prime, so the hops didn’t really add to it at all, but damn, the roasted malts and chocolate, anise, etc in this beer aged in bourbon barrels? A thing of beauty. Would really like to try this a year or two old instead of 6. 2014 as Fyodor’s Classic 500 ml bottle...soft luxurious palate aroma and flavor, just like guradians slumber. AWESOME! "
