Stone Imperial Russian Stout Beer Review

Article by FisterRoboto of

Brewed by Stone Brewing Co.


Style: Imperial Russian Stout

10.50% ABV

Serve at 50-55 Degrees

Enjoyed from a snifter

A: Pours an ominous jet black resting below two fingers of tan head. Moderate lacing.

S: Cocoa, burnt, roasty malts, smokey coffee in the background.

T: Bittersweet chocolate and dark fruits dominate the first sip. I get a bigger taste of anise as it warms. The alcohol is well-hidden.

M: Full-bodied, dry with dark fruits (raisin, plum) in the finish.

O: One o the best overall beers on the market, RIS or otherwise. Wonderfully complex and very affordable. Stone continues to improve like a fine cellar stout.  Pick some of these up while you still can.
