In the beginning, we are going to get into a brew, which is Reserve Russian Imperial Stout, from Cisco Brewers Island. It was founded by Randy and Wendy Hudson in 1992 Nantucket, Massachusetts. They are part of a winery. There is not much history on the web about this brewery. They brew several different beers in many forms. Let us get into the beer.
It has a jet black color with a semi tan to light brown color head. The smell is chocolate to coffee notes. The taste is smooth slight creamy chocolate and coffee notes. It is a nice sipping beer.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In the end, I do not know this craft brewery that well. I just know the few things I had from them. I was not really a big fan of it. I am not say it was bad. I believe their everyday beers were in the middle of the road but I have not had them all. I am a huge fan of stouts so I saw this one. I thought I would give this brewery one more chance. This Island Reserve Russian Imperial Stout has some creamy chocolate and coffee notes. It is a sipping beer with a nice cigar. I was pretty impressed with this brew. This beer has to be their best brew at this brewery. Of course, I have not try everything from this brewery. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
