Old Bust Head Gold Cup RIS

Russian Imperial Stout10.0% ABV63 IBU

RateBeer Score    88 Overall  

Named for the golden chalice bestowed on the winner of the Virginia Gold Cup races—an antique cup first granted to horse and rider by Catherine the Great—our Russian Imperial Stout with its black, velvety, opulence is as rich and complex as the Czarina who was a fan of the dark brew. A dark-berry sweetness underlies roasted tones of bittersweet chocolate and espresso coating the mouth with a smooth, lingering, fullness worthy of the cup!
