Russian Imperial Stout could be called the world’s most imperial or prestigious beer. Brewed by the British for shipment in Casks to the reigning monarchs of Russia, it had to be strong and well hopped to survive the trip.
This RIS is a classic with a dense colour and intense richness from a multitude of roasted malts supported by riveting English hop bitterness. The wood aging provides a tannin backbone and flavours that complement the roasted, alcoholic and spicy but smooth bittersweet finish. Savour and enjoy.
