One thing is for certain: the beer afficiandos at the Beverage Tasting Institute are pretty good at writing. Here's what they had to say about the RISistance, our bourbon barrel aged Russian Imperial Stout:
"Opaque brown black color. Bright, spicy aromas and flavors of raisin compote, chocolate craisin, mole, and roasted chestnuts and edamame with a supple, soft, effervescent, moderately sweet medium-to-full body and a warming, delightful, medium-long peppered greens, honeyed fruits, cherry brandy, and soy finish. A rather lively and snappy imperial stout."
