Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Fyodor's Classic

Stone Imperial Russian Stout is a thick, rich and sinful beer that’s heavy on the palate and massively aromatic with notes of anise, black currants, cof fee and roastiness.

This profoundly complexed beer will overwhelm all but the most stalwart beer fanatics with its level of intensity. Rich coffee, bitter and milk chocolate characteristics abound, while dark charred oak, rich vanilla and caramel from the bourbon barrels synergistically elevate and further enhance the ultra-intense taste of the original beer. The name we chose for this heady creation, “Fyodor”, is a tip of the hat to Fyodor Dostoyevsky, one of the greatest, most influential novelists of Russia’s Golden Age.

Has a nice dark chocolate black color with a thick looking yet smooth texture to it. Delicious smell. Good bourbon and vanilla notes are the stronger smells while the dark chocolate is slightly overwhelmed but still manages to appear in the finish. Taste is the same but with a sweet chocolate that comes out more with a slight toast in the finish. Feel is good with a heavy and silky body to it.

Bottle dated October 2018 into pint glass. Pours a very dark brown with a thin tan head. Initial impression is milk chocolate, coffee, booze, maybe a hint of dark fruits. Mouthfeel is thick and smooth. Carbonation is light. Finish is smooth and chocolatey, fading to a noticeable coffee/expresso bite in the back of the throat. Definitely a sipper, but oh my it is good! First Stone offering I've had in a long time, but it was worth the wait.

Dark brown / black pour with thin creme colored lacing. Oak and bourbon aroma with some booziness. Taste is predominantly oak and bourbon with some chocolate and light char. Full bodied, thick,

'Really enjoyed this one. While Stone is really known for their IPA's their barrel aged beers can be very good too.
