Prince Igor Russian Imperial Stout

Prince Igor [prins egor]: Named after the electrical contractor foreman on our building project, Igor Bushmakin.

This Russian imperial stout is black as night with a dark tan head and aromas of coffee, roast, unsweet bakers chocolate, and alcohol.

The alcohol in this beer is well hidden by the huge roasted malt character, bakers chocolate, slight malt sweetness and velvety smoothness. Surprisingly this beer finishes somewhat dry for as high in alcohol as it is. Be careful this will quickly sneak up on you.

This style was brewed and made popular in the 18th century by Thrale’s brewery in London for export to the court of Empress Catherine II of Russia. The beer was higher in alcohol and contained more hops which made it suitable for the long export voyage. The higher alcohol content was also well suited for the colder harsher temperatures of Russia where spirits were typically the drink of choice. This is a great beer with dessert. The roast and alcohol will go great with sweets, especially chocolate.
