Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout

North Coast Brewing (Ft. Bragg, CA)
Being a big fan of Stouts and Porters I've been really looking forward to this beer.
Perhaps one of the "prettiest" beers I've ever poured, the beer is the color of dark chocolate and the head a thick, creamy tan, Strong coffee (espresso) roasted malt flavor with a surprisingly sweet finish. Not as chocolatey as I was expecting.
I was NOT disappointed ... this is what stout should taste like.

9.0% ABV, 75 IBU
