This stout hits like a sledgehammer! Our double mashed Russian Imperial Stout is completely packed with everything you need in an evening sipper. Deep black and full of roast and body, Kuvalda is perfect for enjoying with dinner or as an after-dinner snack. Be careful though – if you hit it too hard, it will hit right back!

“Big, malty and sweet with high alcohol. All of my favorite things!” says Rick Goehring, Head Brewer and Co-owner at Walnut River Brewing Company.

If you love a good stout, this beer is for you. Dark fruit flavors, plum and raisin, are forward on the palate with a strong, roasty finish. Kuvalda is the kind of beer that Russian Imperial royalty would have enjoyed. Kuvalda is actually Russian for “sledgehammer.”

“There’s a tendency to compare Kuvalda to the other famous dark stout beer,” says Ben Wheeler, Director of Marketing, “but when you put them side-by-side they’re so different. Higher alcohol content, stronger flavors with just as smooth a finish. This beer really stands alone.”

“I wait all year for Kuvalda season!” says BJ Hunt, Director of Business Operations and Co-owner.
