In this beer blog, we are going to sample Giant Slayer Russian Imperial Stout from Tri-City Brewing. If you read my earlier post on their IPA, you know the history of this craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this craft brewery. Let us get into this Imperial Stout.
It has a jet black color without a head on this stout. The aroma has burned chocolate to coffee notes. The taste has a burned chocolate but creamy coffee aftertaste. It is a sipping beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.tricitybrewing.com):
It takes courage to face a giant and we know you face the regularly every day. Because you don’t run away from these giants, Tri-City Brewing makes this Russian Imperial Stout in your honor.
- Bursting with an abundance of character
- Huge roasted, chocolate and coffee flavors
- Although well hopped, it is still very balanced
- Rich full bodied drinking experience with dark hints of old world style
9.0% ABV and 66 IBUs

Closing, this is a great brew. I really enjoyed drinking this beer. This is one of the best Imperial Stouts that is made in Michigan for the price. It is a beer that I know you can age for at least a year. I love this beer. It is a beer you can let it cool down or just start to enjoy it at room temperate. I just wish I can find their beers in the southeast part of the state. Their beers are hard to find. I might have to make a trip to their brewpub one day. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
