Black Betty Russian Imperial Stout - Nebraska Brewing Company


Black Betty Russian Imperial Stout - Nebraska Brewing Company

Black as night and every bit Imperial, this RIS was originally launched to tremendous accolades. Going further, this Stranahan’s Whiskey barrel aged version meshes the rich chocolates, the coffee-like aromatics with the sweet whiskey nose and drying character of the oak. Slightly behind on the palette are the hops – held in restraint by the wonderfully full mouthfeel and broad flavors brought on by the perfect blend of so many malted barley varieties. Ready to enjoy upon release and perfect for extended cellaring.
  

    
Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Pours black with some very faints hints of crimson around the edges, and a dense two finger head. The lacing is thick and very sticky, leaving a nice webbing behind.

Smell; wow, very hoppy nose right out of the gates. Pnine and a little citrus, then fades alcohol. A touch of coffee, chocolate and dark roasted malts meld with some dark fruits, such as prunes and black currants.

Taste; as with the aroma, the hops hit right away with a bitter pine resin and spicy alcohol. Fortunately they a fade some as the beer warms a little, which gives the roasted/sweet malts a chance to come through. Coffee and bitter dark chocolate, followed by prunes and just some faint hints of licorice, fading to a little bit of a sweet toffee.

Mouthfeel is full bodied with a nice/fine carbonation. The drinkability is decent, but definitely is hurt by a high ABV (though I'm not sure what ir is). Reminds me of very fresh BR Big Bear Black Stout.

Edit: Finished the second half of the growler the next day, and it held up extremely well, maintaining a veryy good level of carbonation, with no real noticeable signs of oxidation. Will definitely be going back for some more.

Nebraska Brewing Brewers
Paul Kavulak and Tyson Arp round out the brewing lineup and have come together to build a broad beer portfolio complete with Brewer's Choice specials that will keep you coming back for more. As brewers go, they tend to be incredibly passionate about their craft. Nebraska Brewing Company is fortunate to have two brewers with the fire burning in their souls.

Paul has been brewing since 1992, after he and one of his buddies had a discussion on brewing beer at home. Paul began a journey that would span more than a decade and expose him to the incredible world of diversity, tastes, and other individuals that enjoyed this art as much as he did. Over the course of time, Paul has won a number of awards at the amateur level and even had one of his recipes on tap at a local brewpub. Paul is a volunteer beer judge whenever the opportunity presents itself.

Tyson has what some call a brewing affliction. He drove his hobby so hard that it went from kitchen stovetop to brewhouse in zero to 60 fashion. Incrediby detailed, he possesses an invaluable knack for solving the most difficult brewing problems. It really does an injustice to Tyson to say that he's the junior guy in the group, so let's just say that he's an awesome member of a tremendous brewing team. (anything else would go to his head and our brewhouse door isn't that big)

Paul and Tyson welcome the opportunity to discuss their beer passions with others who share an appreciation for everything that craft beer has to offer. If you've got a comment or suggestion, don't hold back - they'd love to hear from you!
