About The Beer
Country: New Zealand
Brewery: 8 Wired (Renaissance Brewing Company, Marlborough)
Style: Russian Imperial Stout
Format: 500ml Bottle
Beware, this is a BIG beer. Brimming with luscious roasted coffee and chocolate malt flavours which are balanced by a brisk bitterness and bold freshness from the hops.
If you're feeling politically incorrect try it with your favourite cigar, or a dram of your best single malt whisky. Or, if your tooth is sweeter, why not jump in at the deep end with the most decadent dessert of all; half a bottle in a glass with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream on top (beer geeks like us know it as the Imperial Stout Float). Or simply enjoy it on its own as a decadent dessert or night cap - the perfect winter warmer!
If you don't already know the history of Russian Imperial Stouts please check it out on the internet, it's a good story. But remember, although based on that century-old classic style, this beer is a very modern interpretation, like all 8 Wired beers!
