Bottom line: Old Rasputin tastes like it was aged in a oak barrel made from the planks of an old pirate ship, carried by griffins over the fires of Mordor, and tapped by Sean Connery.

A: Solid head, nice color, nice lacing
S: Not much smell. I'm blaming this on the rather old single bottle I acquired.
T: This stout is top notch. Taste it. You'll like it. If you like stouts.
M: How can a 9% abv Imperial Stout have the smoothness of an oatmeal stout? I don't know, but it is amazing.
Overall: How can a stout with a 9% abv taste this good? Without a doubt the best Imperial Stout I have yet to taste.
