Crux Fermentation Project Tough Love

Brewed by Crux Fermentation Project

Imperial Stout11.5% ABV70 IBU

RateBeer Score    99 Overall   91 Style

Tough Love is bold but nuanced, an homage of sorts to the traditional Russian Imperial Stouts and the ruling style of Catherine the Great. We Construct it with dark, roasted malts, malted rye, and oak-smoked wheat, and then banished it for nine months in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels. The aging smooths out the edges on an otherwise bold statement, and bitterness succumbs to tender strokes of vanilla beans, hints of dried cherries, and new layers revealing themselves with each sip.

Roasted barley and chocolate malts give it a rich flavor with a hint of roast. Oats and light carbonation make it creamy with a full body!
