look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

On tap at Belmont Station

A: Black with a kind of light head for such a big beer

S: Not incredibly strong but there is a refreshingly rich matliness layered with oaky vanillla and a little bourbon

T: Light oat like matliness with a silky vanilla component, bourbon is a little less pronounced but overall the taste is well balanced and very good

M: Too light for my taste but it is very smooth and silky

O: Really top notch bourbon barrel stout

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Nice Blacker than black color gave way to a mass of carbonation bubbles along the edge of the snifter. Relatively thick head it was tan and laced minimally.

The scent is mostly coconut with traces of vanilla and oak. Very pronounced in aroma it is not liberally diverse.

The taste follows the nose with huge coconut flavor and a touch of vanilla. Not a lot of barrel taste it follows through a little watery.

Overall it's good but perhaps disappointing when I think I like the stock Rasputin better.
