Style | ABV
Russian Imperial Stout |  10.90% ABV

Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
In honor of Stratford’s aviation pioneer Igor Sikorsky, we’ve created this most unorthodox Russian Imperial Stout. Made with rye and aged in oak whiskey barrels that give it a depth of character like no other, we think Igor would be pleased with the attention to detail in our creation.

4.65/5  rDev +18.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Had on tap at the brewery--served into a tulip

Appearance: black in color, 1 inch head, opaque, low carbonation

Smell: roasted malt, chocolate, and whiskey

Taste: dark and sweet chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, whiskey, then a big dose of oak

Mouthfeel: heavy bodied, medium-low carbonation,chewy, sweet with light bitterness due to the oaking

Overall: This beer is phenomenal. I think it may be my new favorite RIS and is certainly in my top 10 of any style. I love the oaking and the deep vanilla taste. The flavors come out one by one and jump and the beer becomes more complex as it warms. I would certainly pick some up if you can find it. That said, I do think the $20 price tag is a bit high for any beer, but...If you are ok with paying those prices, this one did not disappoint. The best beer from the brewery so far.

Serving type: on-tap
