Commercial descriptions:

Get ready for an assault on your senses with Pugachev’s Cobra, an intense Russian Imperial Stout. This rich, black beer pours with a thick caramel head bursting with aromas of chocolate, vanilla, oak, bourbon, licorice and dark fruits, while flavors of chocolate-covered plum, sweet malt, bourbon, and roasted coffee explode on your palate. This is no ordinary beer; three different dark roasted malts and rich maple syrup are combined in a truly unique brewing process to create complexity and depth. Once fermented, Pugachev’s Cobra is aged for eight months in freshly emptied bourbon barrels. This powerful concoction is designed to be enjoyed now with friends or cellared to perfection and savored in the years to come. 18.9% ABV

This special edition of Pugachev’s Cobra 25 spent 14 months aging in freshly emptied 25 year bourbon barrels, and is ready to be enjoyed now with friends or cellared to perfection and savored in the years to come. 14.8% ABV

Pugachev Royale, the next chapter in our Barrel Roll series, is an even bolder take on the dark, rich flavors of Pugachev’s Cobra. After eight months of aging in bourbon barrels, loaded with cacao nibs and vanilla beans, Royale is transferred to Brandy barrels to extend its depth over an additional ten months. When ready, Royale displayes sweet, ripe fruit notes doused with incredible chocolate aromatics, all folded into the signature Cobra character you’ve come to expect. 16.3% ABV

Hangar 24 Craft Brewery is located at 1710 Sessums Dr in Redlands, CA.
