Smooth creamy head with a deep coffee/bitter chocolate aroma balanced by a sweet malty backbone. Really easy delicious beer that is tasty and smooth throughout. One of my favorite stouts.

Where other Imperial Stouts fail Old Rasputin prevails. This beer beer pours black with a half finger beige head that recedes, not much lacing. Aroma is earthy with black coffee notes and alcohol. Flavor is all that you would expect with chocolate, coffee, and dark fruits leading the charge, there’s a graham cracker in there somewhere, ending in a slight grainy bitterness. This is a world class Stout with all the complexity you would expect. Each sip adds something more to this beers character.

Pours a thick black with a frothy tan head. Roasted dark, chocolatey, and coffee notes hit the nose. There’s also some subtle booziness. Not terribly bitter, a fantastic balance. The body is fairly heavy with a creamy smooth texture.

Right smell right color right taste and well balanced and complex for the style with out being overly alcoholic tasting for the style. This should be the measuring stick for Russian imperial stout.

Dark pour with a nice big tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, light chocolate and touch of coffee which flows into the flavour. A nice slightly bitter aftertaste. A very nice Imperial Stout.
