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.
