Russian Imperial Stout & Mother Russia Bleeds!
Ever wonder what it’s like to be a chemically enhanced, homicidal Russian street brawler? Us too!
This week we decided to try out Mother Russia Bleeds by Le Cartel Studio. Made in honor of Streets of Rage and Double Dragon, MRB is far from your standard beat’em’up. With the aide of adrenaline inducing powerups, killer pigs, and prison zombies, you’ll be finding new things to destroy, attack or run away from. You won’t be left wanting action. That’s for damn sure.
The beer we paired with this game is Otter Creek Brewery’s Russian Imperial Stout. This beer was not simply picked because it’s Russian; although the matching typography really drives the point home. This stout is smoky, smooth, complex, and mysterious. As you’ll soon learn, this beer is like “drinking a campfire”, and if you find that confusing, then good – because like this game, we’re not exactly sure what’s going on [inside this beer] either (but we know it’s good).
Go get yourself some of these stouts, fire up the game, and immerse yourself in a Russian fantasy world.
