East Brother Beer Co. Announces New Release of Russian Imperial Stout

East Brother Beer Co. Announces New Release of Russian Imperial Stout

East Brother Beer Co. in Richmond, California has announced the release of a new upcoming beer called Russian Imperial Stout. The full details on this release are below.


There's the Crown, and then there's the Imperial Empire. One endures, and one leaves behind the greatest legacy in brewing. 
 
History dates this beer to 1698; a Russian diplomatic mission to London. Theories abound over whether it's Peter, or Catherine the Great, Emperor and Empress of all Russias, who falls for this strong Porter from London's great Anchor Brewing. What we do know is the Empress' royal court ordered enough shipments of the strong Porter that it would become known as "Imperial Stout."  She keeps the beer but disposes of her ineffectual husband.
 
Here's to strong women and a rich, bold beer! East Brother Beer Company brews its classic Russian Imperial Stout to honor this traditional recipe: Malt forward with layers of roast, chocolate and coffee; subdued hops balance the malt sweetness with some pleasing bitterness. We recommend letting this stout sit out a few minutes, as it’s best served at around 50ºF for optimal enjoyment of aroma and flavor.
 
Brewed with Admiral Maltings' Gallagher's Best, black barley, chocolate malt and midnight wheat, English Kent Goldings hops and English Ale yeast, East Brother Beer Company's Russian Imperial Stout is a deep, dark roasted coffee and chocolate stout, warming to finishes of dark fruits on the back of the palate. In these days of big bold stouts, this one, at 10.5% ABV, is as big as they come!
