Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: EB1 on 12-08-2013

Pugachev Royale is a more developed version of Pugachev’s Cobra. We added cacao nibs and vanilla beans to a select few barrels of Cobra during its eight months in Bourbon Barrels, then transferred it to brandy barrels for an additional 10 months of aging. Royale displays sweet, ripe fruit notes doused with incredible chocolate aromatics. This is a truly decadent beer to be saved for a special occasion, and will evolve in the cellar for years to come

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle #117 of 450.

Appearance - Black and viscous, but not inky dark. No real head. A few bubbles and a thin collar.

Smell - Tons of chocolate. Vanilla. Bourbon and some fruity brandy. Very oaky.

Taste - Wow, it's boozy. Lots of milk chocolate. Bourbon. Strong oak. The brandy overwhelms the bourbon after a bit and brandy fruitiness lingers.

Mouthfeel - Extremely boozy. Harsh liquor. Heavy and sweet.

Overall - Very good, but a monster of a beer.
