Year of Beer Paintings – Day 81

The beer painting of the day is Moscow Imperial Russian Stout by Midnight Sun Brewing Company in Anchorage, Alaska!  “Alaska’s Most Wanted!”  This Russian Imperial Stout brewed with rye is a fantastic beer, one worth cellaring.  I have a couple of bottles tucked away for a rainy, or special day.  The rich flavor of chocolate and the bitterness of the rye are apparent without even drinking a sip of this fine brew, it’s all in the aroma.  The flavor brings up thoughts of Catherine the Great rolling around in her super fine carriage sipping rich imported brew from London.  This beer emulates that same brew that the Russian Court loved to order all the way to Moscow.

I love MSBC brews, and this is one of the brewery’s finer offerings.  Amazing that a small kettle makes such a big beer.  It is one to linger over, one to sip and savor, a beer that should not be gulped.  Find a nice, big, comfy chair, fill your glass and relax, contemplating what has made your life so rosy!

To Moscow and the Kremlin, the richest fortress government cathedral!  So much power in one citadel.  MSBC, you captured that same type of power and put it in a bottle!  За здоровье! (to your health!)

You can purchase this painting, or a limited-edition print at my Etsy Shop.
