COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Special Markings: Gold foil neck and white numbering above rear label. Some bottles have paper labels, some do not.

We’ve matured our Russian Imperial Stout in premium bourbon barrels for up to one year to create the perfect blend of flavors. Notes of oak, vanilla, and bourbon add another level of complexity to this beer’s already massive flavor profile of chocolate, Ryan Bros. Coffee, and roasted barley. Designed to be enjoyed now or aged in the bottle for years to come, this special release is truly a unique beer that is smooth as it is rare.

CraftBeerNick (2958) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2017
Tap at Bottlecraft North Park, San Diego, 22nd November 17. Drank this is a hurry followed by a Parabola, as I browsed the store for take away bottles ahead of the final call at 10pm. Pours black, aroma is coffee, bourbon barrel, wood, vanilla. Taste is smooth and rich, not sweet though, bourbon, vanilla, barrel, coffee, lovely if a bit rushed.

luttonm (6953) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2017
Anvil and Stave, San Diego. Heavy sip, lots of lovely peat flavors highlighted by extra bourbon vanilla barrel. This is a special treat. Thick soap head, nicely poured back in this special room. Woody stain appearance. Touch of oxidation on nose. Sip is boozy, thick and heavy, sweet malt with dark fruit notes. Spicy booze. Thick and delicious. Decadent treat.
