Russian Imperial Stout |  12.20% ABV

Availability: Rotating

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.

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.

Purchased at Bellwoods for $22.00 500ml bottle. Number 131 born in April of 2013. Served at 6deg C in a tulip but it warmed up well

A- 4.5- Super black no head at all. Very dark.

S- 4.75- Almost perfect. The cognac barrels shine through here. Lots of chocolate and malt

T- 4.25- Excellent. Just a touch better than Founder's Oatmeal Breakfast Stout with cognac hints. Just was not left in the barrel long enough

M-4.5- Creamy good. Very heavy and meaty.

O- 4.5- Excellent. Imagine the next try will get the barrels down right.

Food Pairing

I didn't have anything to eat there this time. Maybe next time. Sure would go well with a nice beef stew

Enjoy
