In a tulip glass the beer was black in color with a medium-sized tan head. There was a smattering of lace.

Wonderful aroma. Both dark and sweet chocolate, coffee. A little vanilla. A lot of booze.

The taste personified the aroma. Sweet chocolate/cocoa, dark chocolate. Bitter coffee. Big booze.

This was a full-bodied beer meant to be sipped. The alcohol is right there, but in a complimentary way.

I loved this beer!

500 ml bottle, poured into a wine glass.

A- Pours black with a large, billowing khaki head, very good retention, spotty lacing.

S- Very barrel-forward, but not in an abrasive way, loads of coconut, vanilla, and nice bourbon aromas, on top of lots of dark chocolate and roasted grain.

T- Nice blend of sweet, coconut/vanilla bourbon flavors and chocolate and roast. A bit sweeter towards the beginning before finishing with coffee and char.

M- Full-bodied, moderate carbonation, creamy feel, alcohol is pretty mild.

O- I wasn't a huge fan of last year's BA Rasputin but this is pretty great, this is a very, very tasty beer.
