Rurik: the founder of the dynasty that bears his name which ruled Kievan Rus and later Muscovy until the 16th century. This land would later spawn the Muscovy Trading Company and become a base of trade between Russia and Britain. Two styles of beer comprise this blend, old ale and imperial stout. Both are of British origin with the later made famous by its exportation to the Russian Court. Rurik is the second beer in the Campeador series, a barrel-aged collaboration between Knightly Spirits and Cigar City Brewing. Limited release of 204 bottles.

Bottle shared at RBWG grand tasting, poured a dark black color with aromas of sweet cocoa, booze, oak, dark fruits, light vanilla, and malt. Flavors are the same with a light boozy aftertaste, another beer that I have looked for a long time and it did not dissapoint. Thanks to whoever sent this one in, it went to good use.

Bottle at RBWG 2013 Grand Tasting. Pours black with a creamy tan head. Lightly tangy dark malts on the nose, some earth. Big sweet flavors some , tangy dark berries, bit of cocoa, light roast. Full bodied with fine carbonation, warming finish, dark sugars, some sugary chocolate. Not bad.

brokensail (13761) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Black in color with a large khaki head. Strong acidity on the nose. Very sour, somewhat acetic, some dark fruit, smoke, coffee, and ash. Maybe a little bit of grass, too. The flavor is quite heavy on the vinegar notes. A ton of roasted malt, dark fruit, ash, grass, and light smoke. Intense dryness on the finish and quiet a high level of carbonation.

blipp (7250) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle at Dadtoberfest. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Sweet malts and sweet booze, I’m guessing either brandy or rum (or both), lighter woody notes, dark chocolate and dark fruits. A touch too boozy and sweet to be really good.
