What We're Drinking

Sweet Looking Artwork
Brewdog's little gift packs are a common sight these days in the shop, but the latest addition is a bit more interesting than their usual IPA is Dead offerings.

Russian Doll is a set of four beers that all have the same recipe.. What's the difference between them? Just the abv.. Same malt, same hops, same yeast, but used in different quantities to produce four different beer styles - Pale Ale, IPA, Double IPA and Barley Wine. It's very interesting to see how the abv changes the taste and qualities of a beer, it also plays a massive part in the colour of the finished product.

The range starts off with an easy drinking, lightly coloured Pale Ale - full of light citrus fruits, and bittersweet grassy hops. Moving up a step you find the IPA gaining a bit more body behind the malts. It's a beer that most people used to Brewdog's beers will enjoy. Move up again to the Double IPA and you get a beer that looks and tastes rather similar, but it's in the finish where things beef up and a big warming alcohol hit makes itself known. Finally on the ladder is the Barley Wine. The colour has gotten very dark now, and the abv much higher! It's a sweet and rich beer, almost one to have with your desert. Caramels, and earthy vegetal flavours abound mixing in with the warming boozy alcohol making something really special.

I'd recommended trying these beers before they run out!
