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.

Pours the darkest black/brown hue with the most chocolatiest two finger head and a thick rim of lacing, the smell is pepperoni, milk chocolate duds and dark fruits, the mouthfeel is full bodied with very laid back carbonation suiting perfectly allowing every ingredient to be noticed which suprises me with such a complex list of ingredients, it starts off with a good mix of toasted oak and roasted malts followed by milk chocolate, berries and finished with a very smokey oak dryness, overall another well put together complex drop from the dogs that would even age nicely cheers.
