BOLSHEVIK BASTARD RUSSIAN IMPERIAL STOUT – Nickel Brook (December 14, 2013)

Beer Advent Calendar 2013

From Burlington, Ontario’s Nickel Brook brewed by Better Bitters Brewing Co. comes their “BOLSHEVIK BASTARD RUSSIAN IMPERIAL STOUT”.  This beer pours an opaque black colour with a brown head.  The aroma consists of roasted coffee, roasted malts, chocolate and an overall sweetness.  The flavour is of roasted malts, burnt coffee, chocolate, dark fruits and a mild bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 8.5%.  This is my new favorite beer from the craft beer advent calendar.

Commercial Description: The newest Nickel Brook creation was brewed for those of you who aren’t afraid of big and bold beer! Made with a blend of roasted barley, chocolate and amber malts, this Imperial Stout gives rise many deep flavours of rich, roasty chocolate and dark fruit. To counterbalance the sweetness, The Bolshevik Bastard is aggressively hopped at 70 IBUs to give rise to this remarkably smooth Imperial Stout that you won’t believe is 8.5% ABV!  Proudly craft brewed, with no additives or preservatives. Naturally carbonated, to give an incredibly smooth finish. Enjoy!
