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.

Y'all mutha fuckas is crazy! This is a bad beer! All that time to age and develop complexity and add wood and vanillins and all you get is hot, burnt alcohol and char. They need to throw away the recipe and start again because this is a complete dog.
