Russian Imperial Stout |  12.20% ABV

Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: jrenihan on 04-06-2013

This decadent imperial stout was transferred to cognac barrels after a long primary fermentation. Aged for just over a year in the barrel, this velvety brew is one serious piece of work. Upgraded by our brewers this year to have a slightly lighter body and more pronounced barrel and original contents character.

Thanks to Coronaeus for the bottle! Bottle # 924/2100, 2014 edition poured into a tulip. Poors thick black with a sliver of bronze head that quickly diminishes to nothing. Instant woody cognac smell with chocolatly, liquorice smell. Taste is very similar to the smell, cognac comes out strong with some liquorish, chocolate tones with a bit of fruity undertone. Had a bit of a bitter after taste and is quite thin. Don't know where the 12.2% abv is hiding, but as I'm drinking more of the 500ml bottle I'm realizing their not lying and it's in there. Overall this is a great beer, really excited I got to try this and I've got some other Bellwoods stuff to try. Wish had another one of these to sit on and try in a year or two.

2013 Edition

Velvety smooth with no alcohol presence. Notes of chocolate, coffee and some dark fruits all balanced with some cognac and wood barrel notes. Slight bitterness on the finish. Another incredible Bellwoods offering.

Served from bottle 1370 of 2100 in to a snifter.

A: as Black as the inside of a coffin at midnight. Dark Tan 1 finger hear.

S: Instant Cognac with some Chocolate and Licorice. Roasted malts with Dark fruit undertones. really Balanced.

T: Similar to the Smell, allot of Cognac and dark Chocolate, Some dark Coffee and the dark under tone fruits. Dark chocolate is more noticeable but still very balanced.

M: I can only describe it as creamy deliciousness.Not as thick as Hellwoods or Skeleton key but very well incorporated in t he beer. there is some slight bitterness at the end but balanced with the slight sweetness it has.

O: One of my favorite beers I,ve ever tastes. Magnificent. If you ever come to Toronto visit Bellwoods brewery Toronto. Definitely a world class brewery. Characterized with their brett beer and barrel aged greatness.
