Bottle shared at Dean’s sticky table tasting. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of dark fruits and vanilla with funky sour aspects, should that be there? Flavour is over moderate sweet, light sour, moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Cunningham (6228) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2015
Black with a lovely tan head. Nice lacing on the glass. Red wine, oak, dark malt and toffee in the aroma. Thick nice body and a soft smooth carbonation. Mellow nice sweetness for a beer like this. Dangerously well masked alcohol. Chocolate, mild roast, red wine, dried fruits, oak and toffee in the flavor. Lovely complex and nice evening sipper.

ClubGonzo (4998) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 9, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany brown, near-black body with a small bubbly off-white head of little durability. Aroma is caramel, Norwegian brown cheese, alcohol, wood, leather and hints of licorice, vanilla, grains and deep malty notes. Taste is caramel, salty licorice, wood, vanilla, mild bourbon tones, deep malts and hints of alcohol and grains. Full body, medium to soft carbonation. Really massive licorice and caramel tones; for an imperial stout this is almost more in the barley wine territory than what I’d expect from Rasputin. Very nice, but a bit surprising actually.
