From East Vancouver’s Parallel 49 Brewing comes the first beer in their new Barrel Aged Series the “Russian Imperial Stout”. This beer has been aged over a number of months in Jack Daniel’s Barrels and was release in January 2013. The Stout pours black as night with a brown head. The aroma consists of dark fruit, roasted malts and some alcohol. The flavour of this beer was much deeper with whiskey, oak, roasted malts, dark fruits, chocolate, brown sugar and mild alcohol. The alcohol content of the brew is 10.9% with an IBU of 49. I would highly recommend picking up a number of these bottles. One to enjoy now (and you will) and some more to enjoy down the road as it will most likely age really well!
