COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We took our award winning Siberian Night Russian Imperial Stout and aged it for 11 months in fresh bourbon barrels. The result blew us away. The dark chocolate malt yields a milk chocolate flavor that blends perfectly with the vanilla flavor from the barrel. The bourbon aroma adds the finishing touch.
2013 vintage: 10.9% abv, 58 IBU

Sergey’s hunt; 10.9% ABV
Black color, the head is small. The aroma is moderate, there is roasted malt, bourbon, some wood. Soft mouthfeel; nice chocolate flavor, with a creamy character, and a mild vanilla and tobacco accent from the barrel; I like sweeter Imperial Stouts, but this is also very good.
