Driftwood Brewery – 2013 Singularity Russian Imperial Stout Review

Driftwood Brewery seems to have a knack with their seasonal beers. One beer that has become a bit of a legend is the Singularity Russian Imperial Stout. Being topped with a wax coating this beer is easily cellered but is also quite drinkable today. This black beer pours with two fingers of deep brown head lingering long after being poured. The aroma is sharp with an oak-bourbon smell coming on strong. The smell almost burns the nostrils showing off its impressive 11.8% ABV. The taste is bold. Starting off strong the bourbon flavour is big and ready to take your number. From here the stout kicks it up a notch and truly shows you its back-hand. The oak and bourbon flavours intensify further and give you that warm shiver as the creamy beer makes it down the esophagus. The overall impression is creamy and verging on smooth; but on the other hand it is an abusive partner that is leaves you battered on the floor. The 2013 Driftwood Singularity is a great tasting beer but unless you are slightly masochistic you probably won’t like it.
