Seems hard to believe that we’ve been making Old Rasputin for 10 years now, but that’s what’s happened. And, to celebrate the occasion, we’ve brewed a special small batch that’s been aged for 9 months in some 12 year-old bourbon barrels. It’s bottled in 500 ml bottles with a cork and wired finish and a special commemorative label ---- and it’s amazing. The depth, intensity and complexity of the flavor profile make it a worthy tribute to this fine beer.

This entry is for all anniversary Bourbon BA Old Rasputin releases.

Drank last night, poured the 750 mL bottle into a pint glass and allowed it to warm slightly. The aroma is booze with some chocolate shining through, flavor is almost identical. I couldn’t really detect any hops, but the bourbon flavor is prominent and mellow. Enjoyable beer for sure.

Much like regular Old Rasputin, a good beer in and of itself, but with lots of bourbon aroma and flavor, and more mellow overall. I like it.

Bottle pour. Loose tan head. All bourbon in the aroma. This is an incredible stout. A lot of bourbon flavor, but not intense enough to take away from the drinkability. Dark chocolate flavor, and finishes with a roasted espresso. Very smooth for the ABV. This beer stands out. Absolutely loved it.

Had this at a share. Pours a nice black color. Bourbon, oak, chocolate, and malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Bourbon on the finish as well, so not an overly sweet finish, pretty dry actually.

I definitely prefer the non-barrel aged version of this. Barrel is a little too heavy and takes over the rest of the taste. Pours black, syrupy looking and thick with some mocha head and lacing. Finishes bitter and woody. Chocolate, some roast. Thick, creamy and slightly syrupy palate. Bottle.

Smells like roasted chocolate. Pours dark with a rich caramel head. Tastes of roasted malt chocolate dark fruit and alcohol. Feels very rich in the mouth and is very smooth. Great finish.

hackobock (1420) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget (#900). Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma holds bourbon, oak, vanilla, licorice and light chocolate. Taste is sweet malty with bourbon, vanilla, licorice, warming alcohol in the finish and a medium bitter roasted finish. Body was lighter than expected making it quite easy drinkable.

Smells sweet, oaky, chocolaty, vanilla, French roast. Very smooth. Boozy. Oak, bourbon taste, wood. Licorice?? I wish I had the regular good olde Old Rasputin to taste side by side...

Emeister84 (1032) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2014
Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, molasses, tobacco, some chocolate. Black with a fully lasting tan head. Dry, strong, boozy, sharp, some mild vanilla flavors. Full bodied, well carbonated, finishes with lingering roasty flavors and hop bitterness, very warming.
