500ml bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pitch black color. Two finger light mocha colored head. Creamy, with awesome retention and lacing.

S: Bourbon and butterscotch. Lots of oak. Nice roasted notes. Very light chocolate, coffee and alcohol.

T: Milk chocolate upfront. A touch of bitter coffee and a not overbearing oak in the middle, with bourbon and butterscotch coming in pretty big towards the finish. Has an alcohol bite in the finish. Chocolate comes through much more as it warms but then so does the alcohol.

M: Full bodied. Medium high carbonation. Very creamy. Good mouthcoating.

O: Very good. Takes the already great Old Rasputin and just improves upon it. Can't complain about a Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Rasputin. Could use some age to help blend the flavors and curb the alcohol bite.
