Old Rasputin into pint glass

Rocky brown head on a black body. Great retention and lace.

Nose is big roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, piney hops.

Palette is spot on for the nose with an extra long espresso bitter
bite on the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium with a low carbonation.

This is my quintessential impy stout. So easily drinkable and damn
near perfect. Oft overlooked in the day of barrels and limited
releases.

Pour is a super dark black with slight hints of ruby at the edges, thick tan head that fades and leaves good lacing. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, and some hops (flowery, light perfume) in the end. Flavor starts with chocolate, middle the roasted malts show through, some hops towards the end. Alcohol barely shows through at the very end when it reaches it's warmest temp. Full bodied, long lasting taste. Truly outstanding.
