grain bill is two row, red wheat, chocolate, black patent, and Vienna
hops are Tettnanger & Willamette

This is a robust and malty stout as it should be. Rich with a tiny bit of dry notes coming perhaps from cocoa and subtle hints of dried cherry cranberry or pomegranate. Mouthfeel was solid with little carbonation, but not has heavy as I expected/wished.

This version was aged 4 months on cherrywood and served at Church Key DC as part of the 1 year anniversary party for 3 Stars Brewing. Was delicious but definitely not an August Beer! I would drink again and enjoyed the added character from the cherrywood, but probably hold off for cooler weather.

Lastly, this beer was brewed with Mike Aloi & Tim Prendergast of Meridian Pint (744 characters)

Had this at Meridian Pint in Philly. From notes.

A - Poured black with good carbonation coming up to a one finger mocha head. Spotty lace and a film retention.

S - Roast and chocolate with some leather. Basic but pleasant.

T - Nice coffee with lot's of roast and some chocolate. All the basic flavours.

M - Nice carbonation, creamy full body. Finish really weak by simply disappearing.

O/D - A good example of the style. Not breaking new ground at all, but a nice quality stout. (484 characters)

From Russia with Love pours a black color, with a nice large tan head. There is a weak aroma with some black licorice notes. The taste has a nice mellow black licorice notes, with good hints of coffee. Nice full flavors, and very easy to drink. Overall its an easy drinking, smooth stout. (288 characters)
