Upon pouring this beer looked like cola, maybe a little darker. Smelled like licorse. Tasted like Licorse and Alcohal. I found this beer difficult to sip, sallow, and even gulp. Had no head, and no lacing whatsoever which leads me to believe I may have gotten a bad bottle, so perhaps I'll try again.

However, judging from what I know about Rasputin, this seems like the kind of thing he would drink by the barrelful atleast ten times a day. So I suppose mission accomplished, Comrades.

I have a wide range of what I like, pretty much everything.

This. Fucking. Beer. Is. So. Disgusting.

I picked a bottle up with a mixed six pack and put it in the fridge, had a Guinness to compare it to, well when time came.

I took one sip and this literally made me vomit. I don't think I've ever drank something more vile in my life. The other reviews made this sound awesome and I'm sure it is for people who exclusively drink Stouts, but if that's not what you normally drink, leave this alone.

Sincerely, a guy who loved Stouts who is now put off by them because of this.
