Two Brothers Northwind is a Russian Imperial Stout ale, one of many fine beers from Two Brothers Brewing Company in Illinois. A 9.10% ABV stout, Northwind is a limited edition brew, available on-tap. Brewed with cocoa nibs, Two Brothers Northwind pours out a dark brownish black with a short khaki foam head that clings, then settles. The nose of Two Brothers Northwind offers scents of dark chocolate, cocoa, and dark fruits, with a trace of alcohol. The taste follows the nose exactly, and the mouthfeel here is sticky on the palette, leading to a sweet and dry finish, just right for a Russian Imperial Stout. Two Brothers Northwind is an excellent dessert beer, or pair it with chocolate or mild cheese. Try sipping this one from a pint glass, tumbler, or snifter at 50-55°F. Nine plus percent alcohol makes Northwind a good beer to stash in your cellar and age at 45-50°F.
