Gently crated by hand in Scotland, this Old World Stout perfectly recreates the imperial beers of years gone by; brewed to the traditional percentage of alc. 9.5% by vol. To avoid freezing during its journey across the Baltic Sea to snowy Moscow.
All full bodied taste, this opulent whirl of hops and malt even rivals the most colourful of imperial faberge eggs.
Originally created to celebrate the Russian royal family, this beer is a fitting tribute with which to toast your own empire.- See more at: http://www.brewdog.com/product/old-world-russian-imperial-stout#sthash.sIclAyxe.dpuf

Brunatno czarny, z ciemną piękną pianą utrzymującą się przez cały czas picia piwa. Czekoladowo kawowy, odrobineneczka wisienki. Lekki alkohol. Gęsty jak smoła, no prawie, oleisty. Świetny.

Jeden z pierwszych moich RISów. Dooobry, ciepełko w żołądku 5/5 :). Piękna, ciemna piana, piwo prawie czarne. W smaku czekolada, kawa z lekką nutą alko, ale nie przeszkadza. Bardzo dobre

Walberla (3) - Alingsås, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2014 does not count
Komplex men ändock mjuk trots alkoholstyrkan. Mörk choklad och rostad mandel. En flaska på fyra personer räcker gott som entrédryck.

mgajdaczewa (303) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 31, 2014
aromat likierowy, z wyraźnie wyczuwalnym alkoholem, lekka torfowa wędzonka, nuty kawy zbożowej. W smaku dominuje kawa, paloność, choć obecna jest także śliska na języku likierowość, czuć pełnię mimo generalnie wytrawnego charakteru, goryczka alkoholowa, na finiszu lekka torfowa wędzonka, alkohol mógłby być lepiej ukryty. Porządny ris, bez szału.

omhper (18954) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2014
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Black with rich brown head. Prunes, licorice and tobacco in the nose. Mid sweet with full body and dense, rounded mouthfeel. Cane sugar, pepper, chocolate and leather. Alcohol is evident in a finish with marked bitterness. A solid imperial stout, more relaxed and "worn in" than you typically expect from breweries that put out a new beer every week.
