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

This is a phenomenal beer! Pours a fantastic oil black body, holds a nice thick brown head which slowly dissipates into the beer! This stout aroma is just really amazing; strong chocolate and coffee highlights compliment a malt tone. Slick mouth feel, quite a fruity chocolate taste, a tinge of hops can come through on a hearty drink. This beer really is something special, it’s by far one of the best brewdog beers, stouts and off the shelve beers I have ever had!

Bottled. One of my top five beers ever! Everything about this beer is perfect! And the best thing is that it is available 24/7 ;D

Bottle from Swords Vic Market. Full marks. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, and rum. Taste is sweet and bitter, with long length. Palate is syrupy and full bodied. Black, with a frothy off-white head.

Strong, tastey and delicious. It has a heavy body and a gentle bite. Smell like flowers, but thats a joke before you zaste it.
