Old Rasputin Russian imperial stout

It’s got a big, creamy head. It sticks to the glass, laces strong. It’s black, with a very deep blood red hue to the edges where the light can penetrate it.

Standard stout, sweet caramel aroma with coffee, and some unexpectedly light-hearted hoppy freshness.

Then you taste it and it’s like drinking a coffee-chocolate cookie. Alcoholic, liquid cookie, but still.

It’s got a heavy, thick, creamy body. It’s sweet, but has a good bitter presence too. The alcohol taste is slightly noticeable too.

The aftertaste reminded me of coffee, especially mocha.
