Good ol Old Rasputin. I have had this many times, finally time to review. Pours pitch black with a very nice 2-finger beige head that is like a rock, the retention is great, stays good-looking the whole time. It looks like a sand dune on top. Leaves nice clean walls of lacing. Excellent smells of rich dark chocolate. In the taste however it seems to lean more towards highly roasted malts, coffee with a bit of cream, with chocolate floating in the aftertaste. A bit of hops and wood taste swim around in there as well. Nice mouthfeel I'd expect from the style, maybe a bit too much carbonation for my tastes. Drinkability is very good, no/very little alcohol taste, price is good for the quality. A classic Russian Imperial Stout.
