Hangar 24 Pugachev Royale: A Critical Examination

Hangar 24 Craft Brewery presents its latest concoction, the Pugachev Royale, boasting enhancements over its predecessor, the Cobra. Infused with cacao nibs and vanilla beans, and aged in Bourbon and brandy barrels, this brew promises a journey into decadence, fit for special occasions and future cellaring.

Tasting Experience

Appearance: Dark brown hue fills the glass, devoid of any head or lacing.

Aroma: Bourbon dominates the olfactory senses, accompanied by hints of graham cracker and vanilla.

Taste: The palate encounters a symphony of bourbon, roasted flavors, and a hint of milk chocolate, with a lingering boozy warmth and oak undertones.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied and minimally carbonated, delivering a super warm sensation.

Critical Assessment

Hangar 24’s Pugachev Royale presents a significant advancement over its predecessor, Pugachev’s Cobra. Its complexity transcends mere verbal description, offering a drinking experience that surpasses even renowned competitors like BCS. However, the limited availability of approximately 400 hand-numbered bottles raises questions about accessibility and potential disappointment for eager enthusiasts. While the brew’s quality is undeniable, there’s room for improvement in production scalability to meet the demands of its admirers.
