bad ass art worked bomber labeled as old wold russian impy... redirected here but this is obviously Brew Dog. Is this a side contract like the IPA w/ same style art? Digression. Heavy weight black stout w/ coffee head. Nose is hops. Surprisingly hoppy but malts fo sho. Silky w/ so subtle of a slight coffee roast. Still, ends hoppy. SO is this Rip Tide w/ better Art? $6.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a large bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a slightly-thick, watery black color with a very big foamy/creamy dark tan head that had great retention, and good lacing and cling. Its aroma had a rich chocolate and coffee malt mix along with some roasty molasses and light caramel, and a bit of earthy and grainy hops. The taste was a roasty sweet chocolate and coffee blend with a sour-bitter earthy undertone, light licorice notes, and a dark sweetness. It had a watery, wet body with average carbonation, and a lighter/thinner mouthfeel, and became more dry as it sat.

Tap at Brewdog Brum. Black. Nice head fluff. Smells live a greased palm, or a box of Terry’s All Gold. Drinks with a stern finish: graphite, leather, vinyl. Easy to swig, with a bitter tang that lasts and also lasts.
