Legend has it that Russian Emperor Peter the Great got hooked on this beer on a trip to England in the 1700’s.
It was really more of a Porter when he first tasted it in England. But when they tried to ship it to St. Petersburg, it spoiled on the long journey. They tried again with a higher alcohol level and added some more hops – the problem was solved. The Czar was pleased.
This is a very deep and complex beer. It’s dark brown in color and has enormous aroma and flavor. It has an abundant malt and hop character with a chocolate, coffee, toasty flavor. It finishes dry with a little warmth at the end.
Red Rock Brewing’s Drioma Imperial Russian Stout is a taste adventure that will not disappoint.
