4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
this was served ala nitro at the portland airport, and reminded me a lot of rasputin sereved the same way. maybe a touch below in overall flavor and complexity, but it was big on flavor, big on chocolate, and big on hops. huge aroma. roasted coffee in there too. very good stout.
Ironically not as awesome CO2 or Nitro at Alamada. Hmmm..."

Pours with nice thick, velvety beige head, lasts a pretty long time too. Normal dark / roast malt aroma, taste is rather full and strong though. A touch of molasses sweetness mellows out the bitterness. Easy drinker.
