Stouts are becoming more and more one of my favorite styles and the Rasputin is near the top of the list. This baby pours black. Big thick head that mostly diminishes. Big time strong coffee aroma and wonderful dark chocolate. Taste matches the smell, for the most part. Not much of an alcohol taste, but one can feel the warmth. This is right on style. I've had this on tap and in the bottle. This is great and relatively cheap and accessible RIS.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a rich, deep, dark brown that is just shy of black in color. There is a nice thick, foamy head that bubbles from the bottom.
S: Rich roasted malts in the nose with some espresso character.
T: This beer tastes like roasted malt, espresso, chocolate heaven. Bitter espresso and dark chocolate starts the sip with some sweet roasted malts sneaking in in the middle. There is a slight alcohol finish.
M: This is a thick, well carbonated beer. Very smooth and rich.
D: Overall, this is an excellent beer. I really enjoy this stout!
