Sleigh "Ryed" RIS
Here is the Sleigh "Ryed" RIS, (Russian Imperial Stout), in the glass after 3 months. Aromas of spice, dark cherries, dried stone-fruit, and chocolate. Flavors of spice, dried stone-fruit, and bittersweet chocolate. There is a slight lingering bitterness on the finish that I think will mellow with more aging. The flavor is reminiscent of a mix of barleywine and Russian Imperial Stout. No alcohol heat in the flavor, but there is a warmth when drinking it. CHEERS!
