A Note on This Beer
Stillwater’s 11% ABV Critical Thinking Russian Imperial Stout is more than just a flash of chocolate -- it’s a decadent feast of cherries, bruleed toffee, hints of leather and pitch black roasted coffee. And with true dark beer skill, Stillwater creates all these flavors without any gimmicks, just the sheer power of different dark malts!
Partnering the flame-scorched flavors of Roasted Barley with the black cherry notes of Special B Malts, Critical Thinking leaves us spellbound with layer upon layer of darkness. Maybe there’s even a hint of woody maple in there. Plan some extra time for drinking this one and bring a friend -- you’re going to want to debate about all the different flavors!
An obsidian black pour releases aromatic waves of molasses, toasted oats, and sweet raisins and cherries. Applewood smoked dark chocolate brownies flavors melt on the tongue. There’s hints of wood, tobacco, and leather, giving it savory balance. A long linger of caramel and char will contemplatively swirl on your tongue for the rest of the day.
Stillwater’s dark beers consistently score over 4.10 on Untappd and Tavour, and Critical Thinking’s richly roasty and toasty splendor it fits right in with their extensive hit list.
