Stomping Ground Kompromat Russian Imperial Stout 2018

Stomping Ground Brewing Co

Published August 10, 2018

The cans have been flying out of Stomping Ground's Collingwood brewery over the past six months or so and now they've got some wax-sealed company in the shape of Kompromat, a bourbon barrel aged Russian imperial stout. It's built from no less than eight grains and a trio of US hops, although it's the time spent on oak that's the defining character.

You're met with aromas of coconut, hazelnuts, cocoa and vanilla, and there's a boozy sweetness running through its midst on the palate, enveloped by rich chocolate and some espresso like characters. At 9.9 percent ABV, it's a 750ml bottle to share with mates, with the remnants of the bourbon steadily spreading warmth through your noggin as you do.
