4.59/5 rDev +5.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: thin dissipating head, jet black, opaque
Smell: oak, light fruit, bourbon, dark fruits, cocoa, dark chocolate, light coffee, roasted malts
Taste: chocolate, bourbon, oak, cherry, plum, vanilla, light hops
Mouth feel: medium high carbonation - livelier than I expected, This is not a thick beer at all - actually it's a bit thinner than I expected. Subtle warming as it goes down, but the 11.9% ABV is scary - this doesn't seem like it's that big of a beer.
Over all: Regular Old Rasputin is a classic easy-to-find RIS; this version takes that great base stout and accents with masterful barrel aging. This bottle was a bit pricey but worth the money. I savored each sip.
Serving type: bottle
