Hello everyone, I am quite new to the world of decent tasting beer and in the last few months I got blown away by many Belgian beers that I tried, especially Quads. Now when I look back at when I thought Leffe was the best beer in the world, it makes me laugh. Anyway, I've noticed that many of the top rated reviews here are from Russian Imperial Stouts so I got curious about them and decided to try one. I purchased from Brewdog an Abstrakt snifter glass (to add to the experience) and a bottle of Cocoa Psycho, which seemed easier to obtain since BD is from Scotland. The thing is, I found it absolutely vile! I wouldn't mind a roasted taste and smell but on this beer it's a lot stronger than that, it smells and tastes like something burned! It leaves a horrible aftertaste as if you had licked burned wood or something like that. Is this normal? Is this the kind of taste that I should expect from the majority of RISs? Am I simply being a big wuss or is this probably just a bad beer? Cheers in advance and sorry if this is a silly question.
