2010 Stone Imperial Russian Stout aged in bourbon barrels. The name speaks for itself. Aged 2 years.
On the label for the Stone Imperial Russian Stout, we’ve waxed poetically for the last dozen years about the sinfully decadent richness of the beer. Alas, we seem to have pointed ourselves in the corner with fanciful descriptions, as we now find that there are simply not enough superlatives to begin to approach this special two-year-old bourbon barrel aged version. Mere waxing poetic is far too limiting. What we really need is art and music. A proper description might possibly be accomplished with a mix of haiku, bombastic symphony and manga. Or perhaps it’s a combination grindcore, found-object sculpture and interpretive dance. Best you come to your own conclusion. We’d probably ask you to post your Stone Imperial Russian Stout aged in bourbon barrels interpretive dance on YouTube, but I think we know better. Do send us your haiku however.
