COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Igor Sikorsky, at the age of 50, realized his dream of 30 years with the successful lift-off of the first practical helicopter in Stratford, Connecticut, September 14, 1939.


In honor of Stratford’s aviation pioneer Igor Sikorsky, we’ve created this most unorthodox Russian Imperial Stout. Made with rye and aged in oak whiskey barrels that give it a depth of character like no other, we think Igor would be pleased with the attention to detail in our creation. Here’s to Igog-and following dreams to reach new heights!

Aromat gorzkiej czekolady, kawy, sporo beczki pod postacią mokrego drewna, do tego lekko przypalony karmel, ciemne owoce. W smaku podobnie i zaskakująco pijalnie. Bardzo dobry RIS.
