Stone Imperial Russian Stout, the brewery’s quite popular imperial stout, is headed back to shelves. Since this is an odd-year (2015), Stone has released an odd partner in crime – Stone Chai-Spiced Imperial Russian Stout. Both bottles are available as of this week.
Stone Imperial Russian Stout is so thick, rich and, well, sinful, you might worry that you’ll be doomed to the fiery pits just for thinking about a sip. Rest assured, however, that even though this seemingly pernicious brew is indeed as black as sin, we guarantee that no actual sin was committed in making it…you’ll have to add that on your own. This massive and intensely aromatic beer abounds with notes of chocolate, coffee, black currants, anise and roastiness, and its heavy palate is nothing to be trifled with.
Stone Imperial Russian Stout is available in 22oz bottles, seasonally.
