Master of Disguise Imperial Golden Stout

Stone Brewing Co. has a delicious brew released under their Stochasticity Project label. It’s called Master of Disguise Imperial Golden Stout. It’s blonde stout. It’s amazing. It looks like a golden ale. It pours a hazy orange copper color with a thin white head. But it smells of toasted grains, roasted malts, chocolate, and coffee. It tastes like an Imperial stout. There’s lots of coffee and dark chocolates, it’s roasty with a hop balance. It’s beyond delicious for any fans of stouts. It even has a 9.7% ABV. It’s a stout in everyway except appearance. It really is a master of disguise. This beer is hard to find and it’s a one-time batch so it will soon be impossible to find. Seize the chance to buy a bottle while you can. You shan’t be disappointed.

Lagunitas Imperial Stout

Lagunitas Imperial Stout is a Russian Imperial Stout from Northern California’s Lagunitas Brewing Co. It’s a great craft brew. It pours out a dark brown, almost black, with a thick foamy tan head. The smell is of toasted malts with a little chocolate, caramel, coffee, and maybe some smoke. The flavor is mostly roasted malt with chocolate, caramel, char, smoke, coffee, and bitter hops. It goes down smooth and creamy. You can hardly taste any alcohol, despite the high 9.9% ABV. It’s a very solid, well-rounded stout and any beer aficionado should give it a try. It also gets bonus points for saying that life can be a real “suka” on the label. If you’re going to learn any Russian words, “suka” is a great one to start with. Spoiler alert: it means bitch.
