Style: Russian Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 13.50%

Availability: Rotating

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.

I've had Fyodor before on tap, but failed to review it at that time - the bottle is only slightly different, but as with all of my Stone experiences in the past... the beer is reliably delicious.

Fyodor is a surprisingly creamy, sweet, rich beer - it's full of bourbon, coffee, and light vanilla notes.... though the caramel is a bit more prevalent. The mouthfeel is heavy yet creamy, rich, and delicious. It's a very filling beer.

For such an easily located beer - Fyodor is a winner and most certainly up there in the world-class rankings. Highly recommended.

Pours a one-finger brown head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Black color, no highlights. Medium carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Bourbon nose and flavor is bourbon, some caramel. Decent RIS. Seriously expensive at $15.99 500ml bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT.

This is a REALLY good BBA RIS

2017 vintage. Pours a black-brown color. Has a vigorous carbonation that disappears quickly. The smell reminds me a little bit of BBA Yetti, all of the dark roasts with chocolate dryness. Smells fucking delicious.

The taste is classic BBA stout. The carbonation starts going across your palette, then you're confronted with this dry malt character shortly followed by a nice chocolaty syrup sweetness that isn't cloying. The body then starts to round out and leaves you with a malt aftertaste that is very pleasant, not so biting or acidic that it hurts you.

I was pleased with this beer. It hit the spot for a BBA RIS craving.
