Review – BrewDog Rip Tide
From BrewDog: It was only a matter of time before the original BrewDog got his paws in on the action. This egotistical young lab has decided to make a beer which best reflects himself.
This is the beer equivalent of the big, cute chocolate monster.Soft, smooth, dark, chocolately and very strong. This gentle giant will never bite but would much rather give you a big lick on the face.
Brew Dog Rip Tide – Twisted Merciless Stout
Purchased from Dawsons Liquors in Severna Park, MD. Chilled and poured into a pint glass. 8% ABV.
Appearance: Black, no head at all.
Nose: Black coffee and dark chocolate.
Taste: Hints of the same black coffee and dark chocolate with a nice, hoppy finish.
Mouthfeel: More syrupy than Guinness but not as thick as a doppelbock. Very pleasant.
Drinkability: Dangerously smooth at 8% ABV. Nicely paired with a medium to full-bodied cigar or with grilled meats.
