With possibly the best beer name in history, Putin On The RIS is an imperial stout to sip, savour and salute. BBCo bring this monster back year after year, along with barrel-aged variants, and it never disappoints.
It’s thick and syrupy as motor oil, coating the tongue and carrying layer upon layer of complexity. Full, almost savoury, flavours of roastiness, liquorice and cocoa bitterness blend with the sweeter and stickier notes of chocolate and dried dark fruits. Coffee and boozy warmth come to the table as well, rounding out the gamut of imperial stout delights.
In Russia, imperial stout drinks you.
