Noisy Minor Brewing Company: Yastrebov

From Noisy Minor Brewing Company, the ‘extreme’ range of beers from Brisbane, Queensland’s Fortitude Brewing Company, comes Yastrebov, a Ukrainian Imperial Stout or Russian Imperial Stout depending on who you ask. But at 9.6%, this is a heavy hitter, and definitely hit’s the brewery’s mantra of ‘extreme’, albeit not to Lexington levels.

Although it did earned people all sorts of badges (Imperial Czar, Heavy Weight, etc) on Untappd, so we consider that to be a good thing.

There’s nothing big going on here.

I quite like it. It’s not a 2.5 [as Paul had previously rated it]. That said, I like it more than a 2.5. As imperial stouts go, its definitely not as fulsome in flavour as it should be. Sir Mix-a-lot would not like this beer. It’s a little bit on the watery side as far as imperial stouts go. This tastes boozier than the Lexington.
