Fort George Brewery Matryoshka

What the brewers say

Bourbon barrel–aged Russian imperial stout.

What our panel thought

Baker’s chocolate and cinnamon aroma with a touch of leathery sherry. Taste is classic American imperial stout. Well-rounded edges. Roast, barrel, residual sugars are all in balance. Dried dates, dark chocolate, dry espresso, touch of toasted coconut. A really good example of a classic barrel-aged stout.

What our editors thought

Very light chocolate and oak notes on the nose. The body is clean but spartan, with a very classic and time-less approach.
