Ballistic Beer Co Putin's Revenge

Style
Russian Imperial Stout
ABV
8.2%

When it comes to making superb beers, you can always count on Ballistic to Putin the effort. (Oh God, he went there...)

Released at the launch of Ballistic Beer’s new alehouse in West End, Putin’s Revenge is a force to be reckoned with. The dense, creamy head is so inviting… but will betray you with a foam moustache. The sweet raisin notes, the warm cocoa and the subtle vanilla from the American oak are all so smooth… but there’s also a coffee bitterness there to keep you in check.

The beer as a whole is comforting and easy to drink, wrapping around you like a soft blanket… but a couple of these 8.2 percent ABV beasts will get their revenge if you don’t keep an eye on them, making this this surly brute likely to hold onto its power for a long, long time.
