Enlightened Despot
Bourbon Barrel Russian Imperial Stout
11.3% ABV, 78 IBU
Just over 2,500 Bottles Produced
1 Case Limit

The Enlightened Despot is an amazingly rich, complex and surprisingly drinkable Bourbon Barrel Russian Imperial Stout. Notes of chocolate, vanilla, and delicious Bourbon round out this robust stout. Aged for 8 months in the most premium Kentucky Bourbon Barrels available. The Enlightened Despot is made with 10 specialty grains and contains over 78 IBU of American Hop flavor. This truly is a one of a kind beer.

In the June 2014 edition of Beer Advocate, the Bros rated the Enlightened Despot a 94 saying, “The beer geeks love their Imperial Stouts, and a small handful garner enough hype to draw massive crowds around their release. This one is just as deserving as the next. A sweet malt bomb with roasted grain and alcohol is not all that is going on here; there’s also layers of chocolate and coffee met by alcohol warmth. Something to savor.”
