Stone Brewing Fyodor
What the brewers say
Rich coffee, bitter and milk chocolate, dark charred oak, vanilla, and caramel.
What our panel thought
Roasty character on the nose, with pleasant coffee notes, a bit of toffee, and some mild alcohol. The flavor reprises the roasty base with some nice alcohol character. It’s lightly warming with a hint of spice but nothing remotely hot.
What our editors thought
Tightly defined nose of oiled leather and dry oak transitions to a sharp sip where equal parts roast acidity and residual sweetness hit quickly, then fade into a lingering dry dark chocolate finish.
