abemorsten (3442) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2013
Sampler from tap at Haandøl 2013. Clear, deep mahogany colored body with a small beige head. Heavy islay whisky nose laden with peat, green apples and bacon. In the mouth sour bacon and wooden ash stand out. Full bodied and oily.

gunnar (7124) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2013
On tap at Haand 2013. Pours clear dark ruby with a small creamy tanned head. Aroma of peat, whisky, vanilla and roasted coffee. Taste is meaty,sour roasted malts, whisky and oak, lots of wood here. Strange but good in a way

kermis (8490) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle shared from Deanso at ABC beers. Pours dark brown reddish with a ring beige head. Aroma of peat, wood, roast, overripe dark fruits, caramel and booze. Flavour is moderate sweet, over moderate bitter and acidic. Why the acidic qualities? That shouldn’t be there. Medium to full bodied with light carbonation. Overall, this isn’t a bad beer, but the base recipe of Rasputin seems to have changed and isn’t the beer it once was. The aging adds some interesting aspects but would be so much better on the beer the Rasputin used to be.

deanso (7426) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2013
33cl bottle from ABCBeers. Very thin white head. Clear deep amber pour. Watery. Some woody notes. A little sour. Not a patch on the original Rasputin.

Inbreak (3564) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 25.05.2013, tap @ HaandFestival:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is lots of unripe banana, wet leather, grass, dark malts, dark sugar, oak, peat. Taste is sour-ish peated, sour oak, wet leather, cocoa, citrus peel, grass, hay, sorrel. Medium bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Very strange, wouldn’t say this was a Rasputin beer at all.

Black, tanned head. Aroma of roasted malts, oak an Islay Whisky. Medium sweet, roast and toast, coffee and whisky, some booze. Moderate bitter. Nice Imperial Stout; still i can’t say i’m able to tell the difference between Caol Ila and Laphroig in an Imperial Stout :)

suprchunk (2781) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Black pour. Slim tan head. Little bit of splotchy lacing. Smoky aroma with some prunes and malt. Taste is an earthy malt and watered down Scotch. A slight acetic note. But not overly so, yet. Would be afraid to let this one sit too long because of that. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2013 Bottle @ de molen. Aroma is big iodine, peat, slight smoke, Flavour has a sour note, also peat, iodine, rasputin almost totally pushed away, which is a shame imho.
