Brewdog (Scotland) – Cocoa Psycho Russian Imperial Stout [10.0%]
‘Welcome to the world of Cocoa Psycho, a liquid dimension where pure indulgence reigns.
Originally brewed some 250 years ago to celebrate the Russian Royal Family, this 10% Imperial Russian stout borrows from the decadence of the time with its extravagantly smooth blend of crushed coffee beans, cocoa nibs and dark malts.
But continue to dig a little deeper, past the infusions of vanilla pods and toasted oak chips, and eventually you’ll come face-to-face with the madness required to make this beer; a kind of insanity that would have made Rasputin himself proud.
To fully unleash the aromas and bittersweet luxury of this stout, we recommend drinking it from a stemmed beer glass before taking a sledgehammer to a Faberge Egg.’
