Bottle, bottled August 2012. Pours a dark brown, almost headless beer with little carbonation going on in the glass. Aroma has a big peaty notes, mostly boozy and sweet chocolate going on. Flavor is sweet and very strong, loads of boozy alcoholic notes are shining trough. Has a firm, burning alcohol sensation in the back. I’m really getting the Laprhoaigh here, but missing some balance unfortunately. Could be too old? Westchesterco (2207) - mclean, Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Poured from a bottle it is a dark brown no head. The aroma is shoe polish. The taste is like chalk and what I would imagine shoe polish would’ve. It’s like a charcoal left by a burned out campfire very unique. And it is flat ftom the bottling or ? Iphonephan (7325) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2015

Bottle at home. Black beer with a minimal head. Leather and some tar aroma. Smoket and leather flavour. I really didn´t like this at all. The original Rasputin died in all that smokey whiskey flavour.
