The wait is almost over. Stone Brewing’s 2013 Odd Beer for Odd Years offering, Espresso Imperial Russian Stout, is set to launch on Monday along with it’s buddy, the original Imperial Russian Stout. This year’s version isn’t that crazy compared to other years, but definitely shouldn’t be written off. They brewed this beer with espresso from their friends at Ryan Bros. Coffee in San Diego and the beer boasts quite a huge flavor.
“We’ve been producing IRS since 2000. The recipe is timeless, yet, being the never-satisfied, forward-thinking-to-the-point-of-dreaming craftspeople we are, we can’t simply rest on our laurels and just stick with the tried-and-true. 2013 Stone ESPRESSO Imperial Russian Stout bursts with intense added roastiness that serves to magnify underlying flavors. Think of it as an amplifier for all of those symphony instruments.”
