North Coast Brewing Co.
"Old Rasputin" Russian Imperial Stout
Dark opaque dark brown color. Roasted aromas of baking chocolate, pinecone, and dark roasted nuts with a soft, finely carbonated, dryish medium-to-full body and a peppery, medium-long grilled vegetables and citrus, nutshells, and coffee grounds finish. A very bitter and astringent imperial stout; try aging this.
