Stone Imperial Russian Stout is so thick, rich, and, well, sinful, you might feel certain that you are to be doomed to the fiery pits just for daring to take a sip. It almost seems evil. Nonetheless, rest assured that Stone Brewing's ever faithful gargoyle has done his job well by successfully warding off all evil spirits. In fact, Stone Brewing guarantees that no sin was utilized in the production of this seemingly penicious brew. Stone Brewing will admit that they used healthy doses of decadence in creating this viscous beauty, but no actual sin...you'll have to add that on your own.
Brewed in the authentic historical style of an Imperial Russian Stout, this beer is massive. Intensely aromatic (notes of anise, black currents, coffee, roastiness and alcohol) and heavy on the palate. This brew goes where few can --- and fewer dare even try. The style originated from Czarist Russia's demand for ever stronger English stouts. Expect Stone Brewing's version of this mysterious brew to pour like used motor oil and taste even heavier!
