COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first Imperial Stouts were high-alcohol concoctions brewed for Czar Peter the Great of Russia. Our own Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout absorbs the tannins of Oola Distiller’s Bourbon Barrels for a full year, resulting in huge roasted malt, chocolate mousse, coconut and ripe cherry flavors that may leave you feeling like a bit of a monarch yourself!

Bottle shared at RBSG. The beer is a thick black with a khaki head of foam. Thick and boozy whiskey. Dry, corny, musky booze. Too much for me. Nearly puked with each sip.
