BEER INFO

Two Brothers Brewing Company
Illinois, United States

Style: Russian Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.10%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Dark delights like this were once shipped to the imperial court of Russia. With a firm, roasty maltiness balanced against a generous helping of hops, Northwind can stand up to the worst its namesake can dish out! Enjoy it by a roaring fire.

A stout made for someone forced to order a stout. It allows some floral things to develop without being obvious about it. Deep, drinkable mouthfeel. Tastes like a meal, drinks like an appetizer.
