I was ready for this one. As famous as it is, I tried to manage my expectations and not hold the bar too high. I believe I did so, but was still very disappointed.
Although it's not my favorite style, I have had a number of stouts, including Old Rasputin, which is in my 10 favorite beers.
Poured this from a bottle into a pint glass.
Here we go, the controversial opinion begins:
A - brown one-and-half finger head, solid black. Looks like a stout.
S - stale coffee. maybe a coffee flavored pastry.
T - Day-old strong coffee, but not quite as bitter as coffee. A bit one-noted on the taste to be honest. I searched and searched for other flavors. Absolutely no chocolate flavor like the bottle says, a mild breadiness that might be reminiscent of a bland oatmeal and coffee breakfast. You wouldn't know there's any alcohol in here.
M - Low carbonation, too low. Feels like coffee. Leaves a stickyness on the lips and back of throat like oatmeal does.
Overall - Disappointment. This beer is very one-noted. Coffee, that's mainly all I taste.
