Day 211 Drink: Thirsty Dog Siberian Night Russian Imperial Stout
Thirsty Dog Brewing makes some very drinkable beer in Akron, Ohio. The company started brewing beer in 1996.
Thirsty Dog Siberian Night Russian Imperial Stout has earned three medals during a four year stretch earlier this decade. The 9 percent alcohol by volume beer pours a jet black color with a mocha color head. This beer has a wonderful chocolate malt aroma with hints of roasted grain. The flavor starts off with some sweet notes, milk chocolate and slight hints of vanilla. A good amount of hops come forward in a 58 IBU wave and provide some balancing bitterness.
