Explore the history and evolution in perfecting our Bourbon Barrel-Aged Russian Imperial Stout through a guided vertical tasting across 4 brewing years. Leading you through the tasting is our Head Brewer Robyn Guille.
Our Russian Imperial Stout is brewed in the English tradition — high gravity and highly hopped to balance the sweetness of all that malt. This style was typically brewed for export to Baltic states and Russia. Why Imperial? It is said that this style was popular with the Russian Imperial Court. This is a complex beer that drinks smooth and is best enjoyed after it warms up a bit. We age this beer for 6 months in bourbon barrels to add to the complexity, resulting in a truly special beer. Tasting notes include chocolate, coffee, raisins and bourbon.
We are pairing our Russian Imperial Stout with desserts from our friends and neighbours at Gabi & Jules and Rocky Point Ice Cream to highlight and compliment the complex and bold flavours of the beer.
