Whiskey Barrel Aged Night Falls 4 Year Aniversary
Russian Imperial Stout
LTD Brewing Company Whiskey Barrel Aged Night Falls 4 Year Aniversary Russian Imperial Stout (11.0% alcohol by volume) exudes an alluring alcohol bourbon aroma with traces of coffee, chocolate and vanilla. It pours dark brown to pitch black under a 2", lacy, dark brown cap that slowly drops to a thick film. Dried fruit, figs, dates, prunes, raisins, alcohol, bourbon, bittersweet chocolate and vanilla flavors roll over the tongue seasoned with light coffee notes. There is just enough sweetness to soften the hop bitterness enough to let the dried fruit flavors shine. The body is full with mild carbonation. The alcohol is smooth and not hot or harsh. The well developed flavors coupled with big alcohol make this a pleasure to drink. I rate it 90.
