RUSSIAN IMPERIAL STOUT

RUSSIAN IMPERIAL STOUT by GOLDEN ROAD BREWING (ABV 8.6%, IBU 20)

russian-imperial-stout-golden-road-brewingThere’s no better place in LA to have beer than Golden Road Brewery. Period. They got it right. If you haven’t been there, you gotta go. Their Russian Imperial Stout delivers on all fronts. It pours obsidian black with a thick creamy khaki head. The aromatics are subtle, but present – roasted coffee, toasted marshmallow, dark chocolate, and vanilla.  A crisp, natural cask carbonation poetically plays on the palate on the drink down. Molasses and licorice notes linger in the finish with a medium bodied mouthfeel. You will be delighted. Hey, I got something for you…

If beer is the new wine then Golden Road Brewing’s sublime. So good I made it rhyme, and hot damn it’s about time.

5/6 bottle caps. Way to go!
