An Imperial Russian Stout, based on a Victorian
recipe - there's a clue to the Russian connection in the name. Brown
and black malts make up nearly half of the grain bill, so this is about
as dark and rich as they come. Target and Fuggles hops produce a
whopping 70 IBUs of bitterness. The high ABV means it'll continue to
mature over a long period of time and so keep for years.
