I so wanted to love this beer. As a huge fan of Old Rasputin (as so many on here are), I had high expectations, especially since I love this style. Duvel, Tremens, and Don de Dieu are among my favorite beers. And indeed it had a nice start. The beer looked beautiful in my large wine glass. Great hazy, golden straw color. Huge foamy head. Lots of carbonation bubbles. But the smell was just ok, if not a bit on the funky side. As for taste, something was clearly lacking. It seemed to need more sweetness, a little less dryness on the finish, more oomph. I kept hoping it would improve as it warmed, but any flavor bump was very subtle. The mouthfeel was a different matter. If the taste matched the feel, this beer would have been great. Nice and creamy, full, very smooth. I'll give this beer another try, and I'm hoping I just got a bad bottle. But I'm a little disappointed.
