What do I think about drinking Russian beer? I suppose, having lived in Poland on the Baltic, I really should accept that whatever could have been done likely was done some time ago. Whatever is in the water, however, the rest of it is pretty tasty. A thick cream head resolves to a rim of beige surrounds a thin froth over deep mocha ale. Rich dark chocolate and date with nuts tempered by a slight if rough twig hopping with a cream finish.
