Alaskan Perseverance Ale

I finally got my hands on this beer. After watching the video posted below, I couldn’t wait to try it. This RIS has birch syrup and fireweed honey, with a little bit of their alder-smoked malt used in the Smoked Porter. They also add some brown sugar, so this thing is loaded with the sweets.

Stats:
Russian Imperial Stout. 9.0% ABV. 50 IBUs. Alaska.

Dark brown to black with a tan head.

The nose is a bit sweet with chocolate, vanilla, fresh espresso. This really does smell delicious.

Mouthfeel is full bodied, really nice amount of thickness.

Vanilla and chocolate with a nice sweetness. It’s got just a hint of coffee and honey.

I’m not getting the birch flavor, but this is just a nice, sweet stout. Easy drinking and a great dessert. 91 points.

    Wow, this stuff seems like it has all the characteristics of an awesome brew! Is this beer sold nationally?

      Not nationally, but they distribute to quite a few states. If you can find Alaskan beer around, you might find this one. Thanks for the comment!
