Beer added by: woosterbill on 03-24-2013

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.

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.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high dark tan head that died down, leaving wispy lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass. Lacing is also prevalent down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of whiskey are present in the nose—these become stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste has flavors of dark malts with strong flavors of oak and notes of whiskey from the barrel aging. The whiskey flavors linger through the finish.
M: It feels full-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The whiskey lends warming sensations to your mouth.
O: The whiskey barrel aging really makes this beer have interesting aromas and flavors. It is quite drinkable considering its strength.

On-tap 3/11/2014 at Track 84, in Warwick, RI served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep black color, with a short brown head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains roasted malts, some chocolate and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a bitter-sweet flavor of dark chocolate. Then a hearty but not too heavy roasted malt character comes in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a very good balance. The after-taste is bitter-sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: Very tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, strong kick, good representation of style, this is a very good big stout to drink for a long time.
