COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottled.
It was only a matter of time before the original BrewDog got his paws in on the action. This egotistical young lab has decided to make a beer which best reflects himself.
This is the beer equivalent of the big, cute chocolate monster.
Soft, smooth, dark, chocolately and very strong. This gentle giant will never bite but would much rather give you a big lick on the face.

NOTE: This beer and Old World Russian Imperial Stout ARE definitely the same beer. Direct, verbatim quote from James Watt follows.
""This is Rip Tide in a 660ml that we made exclusively for Total Wine and More (a US chain). By offering them something unique we were able to ensure they listed Punk and Hardcore

alteregoo (1157) - POLAND - JAN 9, 2016
Po nalaniu tworzy się spora beżowa piana, ktra dość szybko opada do kożucha. Barwa ciemno brązowa, prawie czarna, nieprzejrzysta, z rubinowymi refleksami u dołu teku. Aromat bardzo przyjemny - z butelki głwnie gorzka, wysokojakościowa czekolada, ze szkła dochodzi kawa, ciemne owoce i rum. W smaku wytrawne, prym wiedzie kawa espresso, kakao, whisky... Mało jest słodyczy, pojawia się za to nieco kwaskowatości od ciemnych słodw, rozgrzewający alkohol i dość wysoka, długa goryczka. Nagazowanie średnie, lekko za wysokie.
No nie jest to rodzaj RISa jaki lubię - zdecydowanie mało tu słodyczy, gęstości, oleistości, popiołowości, wanilii... Bardziej przypomina porządnego, wytrawnego FESa.

butelka, warka 26/05/20, na szybko: wszystko wlasciwie cacy, jest kawa, jest czekolada, sa ciemne owoce (choc malo, bardziej sliwki niz rodzynki)... nie ma chleba czy pumpernikla... jest niezle schowany alkohol (choc po ogrzaniu sie jakby delikutasny rozpuszczalnik gdzies w tle)... jest palonosc... ale w ustach ta palonosc strasznie zakwasza piwa, za mocno jak na moj gust. jest tez niezbyt duzo ciala, latwowypijalne piwo. szkoda, kwaskowatosci przegietej. zepsula.

MarkoNm (2525) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 2, 2015
Pours a pitch black color, topped with a hefty and quite lasting dark beige colored head. Gentle chocolatey aroma with somem sweet fruity notes which change midway to more liquor-like. Taste is roasty, slight soury fruits notes with nice and quite present bitterness. A bit boozy, with coffee in the aftertaste. Very silky and creamy body, full taste, strong, though still quite drinkable.
