About Five Crown:
For the past 15 years, Joe has been brewing his Russian Imperial Stout.  This malt forward ale has a rich complexity, with roasty chocolate notes, yet enough hop bitterness to balance out the sweetness.  This satisfying winter brew is full bodied with an enjoyable velvety smoothness.
