COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Matured on oak casks from Laproaig. That means lots and lots of peat.

Black, no head. Aroma and taste are a lot of peat, some ash, whiskey, chocolate, tobacco and something funny...

Rasputin is "top of the notch" when it comes to great beer. no doubt about it. This beer felt "overbarrelled". Not much Rasputin left, mostly barrel taste innit. Which gave me an unbalanced impression of this beer.

Thanks to Colin for sharing this one. Huge smoke and peat aromas. Sweet with monstrous peat and smoke notes. A little on the watery side.

gnoff (7666) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 10, 2013
Draught at Ölrepubliken, Göterborg, on April 9, 2013.
During the De Molen Tap Takeover event.
Clear dark red color, minute tan head. Sweet, acidic, wood, peat taste. Acidic and peat, dry aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness. Peat, whisky, acidic scent. Also green apples.
Too much peat, wood, whisky character, also too acidic and too much green apples. That is for my taste.

Leighton (10510) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
On tap at Borefts BF 2012, Bodegraven. Pours dark black-brown with a fine, beige foam head. Rich dark chocolate on the nose, some smokey barrel notes. Big sweet flavor with oily chocolate, moderte roast, light peat, burnt sugars. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Chewy. Lightly warming finish with further oily chocolate notes, rich chocolate cake, light roast and peat. Great stuff. Fine, I’m a sucker for the De Molen monster stouts.
