Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout is a delicious Russian imperial stout. It's strong but not overpowering.

A: Black colour and a 3 cm head that fades to very good lacing. 4.5

S: Roasty, blackened malt with hints of coffee. Some sweetness too. 4.5

T: Some hops when it first hits your mouth followed by roasty malt. The malt dominates along with some coffee and chocolate into a finish that is slightly bitter aftertaste. Really smooth and pleasant flavour.4.5

M: Very foamy. 4.5

O: Delicious and not overpowering. 4.5
