This Imperial Stout borrows from the voluptuary decadence of 18th Century Russia, with its extravagantly smooth blend of crushed coffee beans, cacao nibs and dark malts. Dig 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 depraved logic that would make 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.
Brewdog owners Martin and James were bored of the industrially brewed Lagers and stuffy Ales that dominated the UK beer market. They decided the best way to fix this undesirable predicament was to brew their own. Consequently in April 2007 BrewDog was born. They brewed tiny batches, filled bottles by hand and sold their beers at local markets and out of the back of their beat up old van. Located on a 5.5 acre green field site in Ellon, just North of Aberdeen in Scotland, their state of the art eco brewery is one of the most technologically advanced and environmentally friendly breweries in the world.
