Just like the IPA, the Russian Imperial Stout style originated in England (and just like the IPA, America made it bigger and better ;). I've never actually had an RIS from the UK, so "Temptation" by the Durham Brewery will be my first. This beer was sent to me in a trade with http://youtube.com/ZakAvery (thanks again for the beer, Zak!). The label even has a CAMRA seal of approval! Let's see how this 10% ABV brew compares to the American versions I'm used to.
