On tap at the cask republic with The Larse. Norman brought us over the label from the keg. It said "30 percent nitro and 70 percent C02". Guiness is 40 percent nitro. Very interesting. I had never had the old rasputin on nitro before. It was very tasty. It was still delicious as usual and the nitro provided a little extra smoothness.

A- Opaque dark chocolate with a lingering 3 finger creamy mocha head

S- Coffee & malt

T- Roasted coffee followed quickly with a bitter chocolate and a sweet hoppy alcohol finish. Clean with a nice bitter

M- Solid, good body, creamy

O- A very well made beer i would gladly enjoy either by itself or with a meal. I expected an Imperial to have a big alcohol taste yet the alcohol in this is well balanced with the overall flavors. Good mix of chocolate and coffee.
