RBSG 2008 and Stone’s new bistro. I have to admit, I’m not a huge fan of IRS to begin with (it’s aight), which is maybe why I wasn’t blown away by this. Barrel fruit and spice on the nose, like boozy, prickly heavily peppered pork sausage. Pretty astringent in the mouth, but nice; chocolate notes are great and rich; brown sugar; a little acidic from the bourbony fruit. Not super-full, the carbonation is soft and foamy. It’s definitely very bourbon-forward; the barrel character certainly does not get lost in the beer.
Rocznik 2008. Próbowany w wersji beczkowej na otwarciu Stone Brewing Berlin. Piękna sprawa! Wnioskuję że piwo nic nie straciło z czasem, wręcz przeciwnie - doskonale się ułożyło. Silne nuty wanilii, drewna i bourbonu, mleczna czekolada, wysoka paloność, długi, intensywnie czekoladowy finisz. Bardzo gładkie, dość nisko wysycone, alkohol zamaskowany znakomicie. Klasa. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 11, 2017
Thanks JC. Nice stuff, easy drinking for the strength. Not quite sure, plasticine, booze, marker pen, chocolate. Fruity. Nice.

2015 Fyodor’s 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. sjogro (4135) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2017

Glad to finally try this. Bought at the Liberty Station brewery. Great aromas and flavors of roasted malt, chocolate, hops and whiskey. Very dark and somewhat thick. Smooth and a good sipper. anders37 (26625) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2017
