Hargreaves Hill Brewing Company
Hargreaves Hill Russian Imperial Stout (RIS)
Brewery: Hargreaves Hill Brewing Company
Style: Imperial Stout
Format: 750ml Bottle
After an extended period of cellaring within the brewery, the 2013 Russian Imperial Stout is ready for release.
Chicory, coffee and liquorice malt characters share the main stage with a heady alcohol warmth. The extended maturation period facilitates an intricate interplay between savoury roasted malts and well-developed fermentation characteristics.
A rich, sweet-molasses body merges to a bitter finish of hops and roast, and makes an excellent after-dinner match for an authoritative blue-veined cheese or a little good quality dark chocolate.
