Russian Imperial Stout |  10.00% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Welcome to the world of Cocoa Psycho, a liquid dimension where pure indulgence reigns.

Originally brewed some 250 years ago to celebrate the Russian Royal Family, this 10% Imperial Russian stout borrows from the decadence of the time with its extravagantly smooth blend of crushed coffee beans, cocoa nibs and dark malts.

But continue to dig a little deeper, past the infusions of vanilla pods and toasted oak chips, and eventually you'll come face-to-face with the madness required to make this beer; a kind of insanity that would have made Rasputin himself proud.

To fully unleash the aromas and bittersweet luxury of this stout, we recommend drinking it from a stemmed beer glass before taking a sledgehammer to a Faberge Egg.

4.04/5  rDev +3.3%

Poured into a 16 oz snifter. Pours pitch black with a huge 2 inch mocha head, that leaves behind some solid lace.

Smell is expresso, dark chocolate, leather, tobacco, and vanilla.

Taste follows the nose. Starts with a shot of expresso, dark chocolate and finishes with a leathery, tobacco, and vanilla.

Body is only only maybe medium, slight carbonation, very dry, and pretty easy drinking for a fan of aggressive stouts.

This is very nice, but will take an equally if not better Founder's imperial stout at the same price a four pack as a single bottle.
