OLD RASPUTIN review

FINALLY THE RUSSIAN INPERIAL STOUT I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR!!! When I saw this bad boy on the shelf I was ecstatic. I rushed home and poured a 12 oz. bottle into my prized tasting snifter. There was a creamy mocha colored head that slowly settled, with a good amount of lacing on the inside of the glass. The actual color of the beer was jet black, absolutely devoid of any light penetrating the brew itself. The aroma was amazing, dark chocolate notes along with roasted malts. The taste was absolutely exquisite. Very smooth, not a hint of alcohol, with tastes of chocolate malts, espresso, and a subtle hop background. This beer is definitely one to stock up on and enjoy throughout the cold winter months.

Serving type: bottle

Apearance - Pours near black with just a hint of red when held up to the light. A one finger, fine bubble light brown head lasts longer than the beer does. Lacing is more like a wall than anything else.

Nose- Solid roast malt, coffee, chocolate with some nuttiness and sweetness showing through.

Palate- Slightly sweeter than expected, but not in a bad way. Tastes as you would expect from the nose, but with toffee, and licorice notes.

Mouthfeel- Creamy, FULL bodied, medium carbonation.

Drinkability- Finishing one makes me want another.

Serving type: on-tap
