Review

Overall Score: 6.2

The details of this beer are sexier than the taste. I nearly came while reading about the barreling and sourcing process, only to be let down by the palate. This is a slightly above average stout that leads me to believe they wasted their time in the craftsmanship. You could put this next to 80% of Russian imperial stouts that have no uniqueness, and you couldn’t tell the difference. Fortunately, Russian imperial stouts are generally good and this one isn’t terrible. However, not the best thing to say about a $10, 12oz beer.

Degenerate Discussion

This beer would taste better if you consume it while fucking a Russian mail-ordered bride. Sadly, that’s not a luxury most of us will ever experience, so we’re left with an average beer from a Texas brewery. I mean, I’d even drink it while banging a Texan chick, but she better not have that dumb accent (I can say it since I live here). Cheers to Texas, Russia, and all Degenerates!
