Inspired by brewers back in the 1800’s to win over the Russian Czar, this is the king of stouts, boasting high alcohol by volume and plenty of malt character. Low to moderate levels of carbonation with huge roasted, chocolate and burnt malt flavors. Suggestions of dark fruit and flavors of higher alcohols are quite evident. Hop character can vary from none, to balanced, to aggressive.
We take pFriem Imperial Stout and put it into Bourbon Barrels and age the beer for one year. Over the course of the year the beautiful tannins of the oak and bourbon seep into the beer. The result in a round, bold, strong, and magnificent beer.
