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

On Tap @ Borefts Bierfestival 2012/ It tastes more fruity-plum-raisin then the other Rasputin I tried, wood, old wooden, a bit alcoholic. Not bad but not easy to drink. 9/10/8/9/-/9

tap at De Molen Festival 2012 ...Deep black ... thin tan lacing ... deep roast ... iodine whisky and soft malt nose ... dark malts ... soft roast ... sweet chocolate ... way too much whisky for me ... and the wrong one for me

Benzai (6432) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2012
33cl bottle @ home. Opaque, almost black color with a slight red glow coming through when held into the light, no real head, just a small beige to light brown lacing on top. Smell malts, alcohol, medicin and I guess laphroaig barrel aging. Taste malts, not nearly as much peat as I had feared, alcohol, a bit roastyness, clearly barrel aged though, a slight touch of sweetness but a bitter finish. Full body, low carbonation.

BoBoChamp (5115) - Gent, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2012
33cl, as Rasputin ’Laphroaig BA’, new exclusive Dutch brew Anno 2012, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex Stout, roasted/malty and slightly smoked/alcoholic, not too heavy, balanced, hazy, nearly no head, very good brew, yet expensive!

PhillyCraft (2850) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Sampled at BBF. Pour was deep brown, almost black. Notes of heavy peat, roast, smoked malts, figs, chocolate, raspberries, and candy sugars. Medium bodied with a small amount of carb. Enjoyable but a little too much roasted almond peat in the taste for me.

Bottle from Bier Koning. Dark black body with thin line of silky white head. Nose is smoky peat, sugar, molasses, dark. Taste is nice full-bodied sweet stout, molasses, smoky, dark fruits. Very nice. Some licorice and Jagermeister in there as well.

Vaiz (3149) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2012
Tasted at 4th BBF @ De Molen. Brown pour. Aroma of peat, iodine, roasty, chocolate. Flavor is slightly sweet, slightly sharp, a bit thin, but nicely balanced and a lovely flavor.

MotherBrother (654) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2012
Tap @ BBF 12. Pour very dark brown with a reddish hue, and a thin ring of light tan head. Aroma is peat, smoke, slight vanilla, and some candy-stuff as well. The taste is pretty sweet, with quite some roastyness to it. Medium and slight oily body, with an average carbonation.

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2012
Black, no head. Aroma of peat, medicinal, turfed malts, roasted, light sweet mocha and cacao. Quite sweet flavour, light smoke, light astringent wood. Lots of peat, light vanilla, red berries and wood tones. Creamy, very light carbonation. Light sweet finish, smoke and peat.
Nice, love the pronounced Laphroaig while still having some balance.
(Draught @ 4th BBF, Bodegraven)

jackl (3864) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Keg @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s deep brown with a tiny head. The nose is big, boozy whiskey, vanilla and chocolate fudge cake. Mild peat. The taste is strong sweet wood, some chocolate syrup and coffee cake. Smooth, oily body, viscous. Full, rich. Overall, pretty excellent. Much better than I thought it would be!
