North Coast Brewing Co. - Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout, poured into a Craftgeer snifter.

Look - Pours a thinner brown-black and settles black with a good sized soapy head. Sticky chunky lacing.

Smell - Cola, some chocolate and coffee, definite dark fruits.

Taste - Taste is malt with bitter coffee and just a touch of chocolate. A little thin but generally outstanding.

Mouthfeel - Thin but full-medium bodied. Rests dry and bitter. Medium carbonation. Good drinkability.

Overall - This is one of the pioneers of the style, and it's not lacking in flavor or complexity. Still, there are a better RIS out there now. As an intro to the style, this is a great place to start.
