Portland’s organic brewers at Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB) have announced a bottle release for the Motherland Russian Imperial Stout. If you have made it into the pub or Bike & Beer Festival, you may have tried this rich and smooth beauty on tap already. Hopworks calls it “black as a Siberian winter night, but warming enough to weather it. Bittersweet chocolate flavors mingle with deep fig and plum fruitiness and it finishes with a lingering spiciness and heat.”
Motherland is part of Hopworks’ Imperial Series, which features rotating imperial ales throughout the year and is geared for lovers of slow-sipping, big, bold, and highly complex beers. This season drinkers will appreciate Motherland’s focus on a hearty organic malt bill that will warm your heart during cold, rainy and snow-filled evenings.
