North Coast's "Old Rasputin" RIS @ 9.0% from a 330ml bottle 4 pack
A-pours almost black , good size tan head leaving some spotty lacing along the pint glass
S-barrel aged booze dominates!! , hints of burnt coffee grounds and some chocolate
T-nice and strong , big booze thru out , big plum vibe , bitter hints of coffee and bakers chocolate help in the very dry finish
MF-very little carbonation , full bodied , boozy aftertaste dominates
Ov-be careful as the beer warms "Old Rasputin" really seems to hit below the belt ... oh those Russians

cheers LampertLand

A this beer is dark, opaque with a light brown head. Looks fantastic

S malty, dark bitter chocolate, light booze, coffee

T WOW AMAZING!!! Slightly dry malty beginning, with a drier coffee middle and a bitter chocolate ending.m the aftertaste a lightly boozi, and dark bitter chocolate.

M medium viscosity, drying and a nice carbonation.

O one of my top 5 stouts ever. This beer is amazing and I drink it frequently and recommend it often.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a riedel snifter
