In a different style, the comparison with the mythic Tsarina Esra is unavoidable, and in my opinion, Rasputin wins. Maybe one of the three best Imperial Stouts I’ve ever tasted. Pours into the glass like petroleum: solid, steady and promising an aroma and flavour that don’t dissapoint. Very, very great.

Dark brown/ black with lasting foamy lacy beige head: aroma is rich sweetish fruit like raisin and blackberry; Flava s same with hints of slightly smoky malty syrupy molasses hops; I cannot describe how complex it is; feel rich chewy with fizz; finishes dry malty slightly roasty toasty smoky

Goes to the top of my ris list. Sweet, chocolate aromas top the dark notes creating a complex beer that is refreshing with every sip ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rasputin is not dead … Here is the new Rasputin !! Imperial (comme le tsar !!) stout avec les mêmes composants que la Mooi, mais sur une densité supérieure (23°plato) et une amertume moins forte (46 EBU), pour un niveau alcoolique très semblable : 10,4 % abv. Couleur noire intense, avec de petits reflets roux, superbe. Opacité totale (EBC de 202). Mousse qui est un nappage beige clair en « tourbillons ». Magique. Arômes de raisins mûrs, terre, argile, fût de vin noir, pointe légère d’anis, nougat. 1ère bouche souple, un rien moelleuse, sur du fût de porto, porto tawny, café d’Afrique verte, beurre de karité, écorce de chêne. Arrière-bouche dense, forte sur café et tourbe. 2ème à la fantastique puissance, avec pourtant énormément de complexité. Arrière-bouche qui demande le calme pour jauger le potentiel... 3ème avec la finesse des raisins, et la force du bois de fût. Arrière-bouche d’un équilibre fort, et d’une grande densité. Longueur qui est une vraie cuvée, une bière d’une trempe formidable. Jambes finement marquées et serrées. Levure qui a un caractère certain, très déterminée. Alcool qui est une force de la nature, apte à soutenir avec bravoure cette bière monumentale. Finale qui est un élixir. CONCLUSION : la finesse dans la force, la force dans la finesse. Une pure merveille. Une bière à laisser vieillir sans hésitation, puisque le brasseur n’hésite pas à proposer 25 ans … Magnifique !! Mais elle a déjà 5 en commençant son vieillissement !! Donc, elle risque les très hautes sphères !!!

Bottle 33cl. Thick dark brown pour with a huge beige head. Sweet bakers chocolate dominates - this is actually more sweet than roasty

Poured at the sampler. Aroma of alcohol and dark fruit. Dark ruby purple pour. Taste is heavy with dark fruit and finishes dry.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2010 Opaque dark amber/brown with thick tan head. Aroma of bitter chocolate. Flavor of burnt coffee, dry and full-mouthed. Bitter chocolate finish. Easily our best beer of the night, one of the best stouts I’ve ever had. Heaven. Draft at Churchkey, under the name Disputin. Much more thin and watery than the Rasputin, much less chanracter and complexity than the bottled version. 3.4.

Lele (423) - Padova, ITALY - MAY 30, 2015
ASPETTO: marrone scurissimo, praticamente impenetrabile. Schiuma marroncina, abbastanza abbondante e persistente. AROMA: caffè, cacao e liquoroso dono predominanti. Aroma molto buono e avvolgente. GUSTO: Pieno e avvolgente. All’inizio si presentano soprattutto caffè e cacao (sia dolce che amaro), nonché della buona vaniglia. Il tutto è accompagnato da un buon liquoroso. Il finale è leggermente amaro, di un amaro tostato. Corpo strutturato, carbonizzazione bassa. CONCLUSIONE: veramente gran bella birra. La trovo un po’ meno complessa della sua versione bourbon, ma ugualmente molto saporita.

This beer looks and smells godly. A molasse smell sweet and pure. The taste is all that you wish for a stout. Theres a distant and perfect taste of molasse and white sugar. Cheers and enjoy!
