A Note on This Beer
Portland Monthly wrote a list of “8 Beers for Holiday Party Survival,” and one of the noted double-digit ABV essentials was Gigantic Brewing’s 10% ABV Most Premium Russian Imperial Stout. One taster’s reaction was simply: “This beer is an endeavor.”
With its choco-smoky-roasty intensity nestled in a Frangelico-liqueur spun 10% ABV, Most Premium has Untappd users like @brodowicz slain: “So many flavors, so few fluid ounces.”
Brash aromas of vanilla-dipped cigars entice you to sip the black-hearted pour. The flavor is how you would imagine a Ferrero Rocher chocolate if it was soaked in dark ganache and top shelf booze. The gigantic ABV is virtually untraceable under the cocoa-dusted, oak char encased in candied hazelnuts. In other words, this beer isn’t just an endeavor -- it’s a dangerous one.
“Keep Portland Weird” is a famous saying in their hometown, but if it were up to Gigantic Brewing, we’re sure they’d change it to “Keep Portland Boozy.” These brewers thrive on the edge of delicious over-the-topness that helped them nab a GABF -- catch them at their darkest yet with Most Premium Imperial Stout.
