    This reminds me of Myshka - a "Russian serf stout" brewed by Off Color in Chicago.

    Brilliant article! Who knew? So much is lost to us over time. Ron Pattison is a hero to me!

    Always enjoy your articles, but once I saw there are 40 bottles of that version of Barkley Perkins IRS from 92'-93' at your house, all I could think about was a road trip to stalk you.

    Session stout is right on for my Irish blood and Michigan climate. Would probably drink for breakfast

    Session IPA= Pale Ale
    Session Imperial Stout= stout
    Session Barleywine= brown ale

    I don't understand how you can just add the word "session" in front of a style of beer and it becomes "new". What next? Session Double IPA? Session Strong Ale?

    Considering the beer style @patto1ro is writing about is almost a hundred years old and the recipe is from 1946, I don't think its "new".

    Came here to say this. Imperial means strong so if it's just a weak strong it's just a regular stout.

    Anybody who doesn't want some "Imperial Session stout" can send their allotted portion to me. We can call it whatever they will ...

    I like Ron Pattinson. I only understand about half his stuff, but I like it and want to understand more.
