COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Igor Sikorsky, at the age of 50, realized his dream of 30 years with the successful lift-off of the first practical helicopter in Stratford, Connecticut, September 14, 1939.


In honor of Stratfordís aviation pioneer Igor Sikorsky, weíve created this most unorthodox Russian Imperial Stout. Made with rye and aged in oak whiskey barrels that give it a depth of character like no other, we think Igor would be pleased with the attention to detail in our creation. Hereís to Igog-and following dreams to reach new heights!

Dark opaque brown, wee caramel glint. Soft tan ring. Nose is big peppery smoke and brassy malt roast. Initial taste is a decent slosh of burnt end caramel, spicy rye and a bit overly clinical/boozy. Carbonation is firm and mouthfeel deep set heat. Finishes rich and pudding boozy.
