Russian Imperial Stout |  10.00% ABV

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.

Appearance has a brown thick head that slowly settles, some lace and an opaque brown black color. aroma is on the mild side with malt Cocoa, hint of molasses and roast. flavor is like aroma very small subtle hints of coffee and good balance between bitter sweet and tang. Perfect body. A velvet Hammer beer with some booze at the very end of the finish.
