Pours a dense pitch black into a snifter. 2 inch mocha colored foamy head that stays on for a while.
Rich dark chocolate on the nose, yeast and hops!
A punch in the palate with hops, sweet malts, dark chocolate and hints of coffee! Alcohol is present at 9%, but it doesn't overwhelm.
An amazing Imperial Stout and a perfect addition to this cold evening! Hoppy to the core!
Highly recommended!

Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout
North Coast Brewing Co.
Style: Russian Imperial Stout
ABV: 9.00 %
bottle>pint glass @ E Street week of 9/23/09

Appearance is almost identical to Old #38 in color, very dark brown/black with a nice creamy tan head.
Smell/Aroma is dark roasted malty-ness with coffee and cocoa notes in a fine symphony for the nose.
Tastes as it smells and then some, with a full bodied roasty finish.
Mouthfeel is full body with low carbonation as expected.

Cocoa is a forward flavor in this stout balanced by a harmony of citus hop notes. Just the way I like an RIS.
Exceptional drinkability for a RIS, not 100% sessionable, but complex enough to make it a 5.0 if you pace yourself and respect this big bold brew!
