When we think of a Russian Imperial Stout, we think cold, dark, and filthy rich. We’re not historians, but another dark, cold leader comes to mind. Is Beer weighs in at over 4000 pounds of grain and would easily text the resources of premier stolen. We added bourbon aged Oak and red cherries to make this a real bear. Instead of starting a Cold War, he would’ve been better off brewing a delicious beer. And, unlike the former Soviet Union, this beer ages well.
