Thanks to bnuno I'm having my first Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout and my first beer of this style. What an awesome trade.
Poured into a pint glass instead of a snifter glass.
A: While I was pouring this beer I've let a "wow" coming out of my lungs - such a beautiful beer. A dense dark brown colored body with a big caramelized head that left some lacing. Nice thing here.
S: Real coffee (instead of high roasted malt), nuts and chocolate.
T: It kinda tastes like a nice expresso with some chocolate bar by its side. It's really good.
M: I've seen some other beers that like to balance the sweet and bitter, but nothing like this. It's beautifully sugary at the beginning and awesomely bitter at the end of the sip. The 75 IBUs are just awesome, I've never had a beer with so much IBUs but this is extremely well done.
O: For the first Russian Imperial Stout, I'm truly impressed. Never tasted nothing like this.
