Draft (Nitro)
A - Poured a dense black into a pint glass with a solid 2" creamy tan head, very tiny micro bubbles only; the head was like thick cream; looked like icing and it remained throughout the drink, but reduced to about 1" When I was done, the head still covered the bottom of the glass. I actually took a tortilla chip and scooped it in the head as though it were dip.

S - Sweet and malty, but honestly hard to smell through the thick layer of head isulating it

T - This was semi-sweet molassas, malt; no coffee or burnt roast detected

F - Very smooth, thick, almost no carbonation

O - Absolutely loved it

My first Old Rasputin and didn't know what to expect. I had this at a little Mexican restaurant in Staunton, VA (a hidden gem in my opinion) with lunch, but will definitely try this beer again; highly recommended. This beer was extremely easy drinking given the 9% ABV

Draft: Thick, creamy head - super dense.
Rich mouthfeel, surprisingly light on the midpalate. Intense, malty finish. Nice beer.
