Barrel Aged Nikita

Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout

NIKITA [NI-KEE-TUH, KROO-SH-CHEF] — 1894-1971, Premier of the Soviet Union from 1958–64, oversaw the creation of Sputnik 2. 

Barrel aged Nikita began its life as a fairly traditional  Rye Russian Imperial Stout. It was brewed with roasted barley,  midnight wheat, and 20% local rye, hopped with Magnum, Cascade, and Mount Hood.  Nikita was then aged in bourbon barrels.  The result is a smooth and delicious barrel aged beer with notes of oak, vanilla, baker's chocolate, and bourbon.
