Brewdog have released a new experimental range exploring the differences between different styles of beer. Russian doll varies the strength of the beer between a pale ale and a 10.0% ABV barley wine.
I like the idea but unfortunately at every point I've tried Russian doll disappoints. The IPA can't hold a candle to punk. The double IPA is lousy compared to hardcore and the barley wine isn't a patch on clown king.
I don't know if this is a reflection of the effort put into the different beers (the ones I like are regularly produced so should have received more effort) or if this means the different styles require different approaches and Russian Doll was doomed to failure from the outset.
More data is required; I will have to drink more beer.
