(Halifax, NS) - On December 6th 2 Crows Brewing releases its interpretation of a Russian Imperial Stout using a lot of flavours that are used in Finnish cuisine — salty liquorice and cardamom. Linnea used a bit of sea salt, liquorice root, star anise, and cardamom pods as well as about 95% Finnish malt too, from Viking malt. 
It is the Finnish 100th year of independence this year (100 years independent from Russia).Brewer Jeremy Taylor lived briefly in Finland where his brother currently lives there with his family. The beer is named after Jeremy's niece. Linnea is 9.1% and 62 IBU and was brewed back in late August, to allow it time to mellow and condition for its release.
