COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Belgo (154) - Kge, - FEB 27, 2010
Tasted from a growler generously donated by Yespr - Thanks a lot! Pours pitch black with a small espresso coloured head that disappears quickly. The colours are extremely good looking and Im sure the appearance wouldve gotten a perfect score from me, if the beer had been served directly from the tap. The aroma bursts with sweet french roast coffee and heavy bourbon notes. On the palate the beer is extremely creamy and soft with sweetness both from the residual sugars and the alcohol. Again the bourbon is very present - it seems that the bourbon cask hasnt been emptied completely before the beer was put in. So this is a beer that is sure to divide people. For those who doesnt like beers with noticeable alcohol and/or simply dont like bourbon, this is probably the worst beer in the world. Fortunately I love bourbon :-)

2015 Fyodors Classic poured into a taster showing no head with thin translucent brown rims and pitch black center. The nose shows subdued bourbon and light caramel. The palate is full bodied and moderately carbonated with a strong alcoholic spice. Flavors of roasted malt forwardness and dark chocolate with bourbon on the mid-palate. Very light smoky bitterness on the finish.

klm1 (1342) - Bled/SF, - NOV 16, 2016
Bottle, 0,5l, vintage 2015, batch#1, 13%abv: pours oily black, with (surprisingly!?!!!) longlasting creamy light brown head. Aroma: intense dark and roasted malts, which takes on chocolate, cocoa nibs, mokka, supported with dark fruits esters, venilla, oak, leather, bourbon...flavor: very similar to aroma: intense roasted barley, dark malts flavors, which takes on espresso coffee, dark & milk chocolate, cacao nibs, tosted toffee, hint of caramel, supported with dark fruits esters (cherries, prunes, blueberries...), with slightly piny, floral, spicy hop notes and with vanilla, bourbon....finish is dry, slightly sticky & sourish of roasted malts/barley...body is full/thick, texture creamy, velvetly, carbonation low to moderate medium. Classical / old school BA RIS; simply but very enjoyable.
