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.

Thisis12ptfont (1095) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - OCT 24, 2015
Aromas of barrel wood, toffee, chocolate, milk, coconut milk, sugar, oak and soy sauce. Pours black with a really heavy carbonation. Taste brings coconut, lactose, spoiled milk, pineapple juice, chocolate, toffee, mocha, espresso, funky dark malts, vanilla and barrel wood. Overall, interesting twist on a great base beer. Lots of chocolate, oak, vanilla and coconut notes. A- rating.

Clownoisseur (415) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle. XV edition. Pours near pitch black with a deep rising mocha colored head that settles to a cap with nice lacing. Aromas of deep roasted coffee, anise, light brown sugar, light vanilla and wet oak bourbon. Taste follows the nose with a nice harmony between the sweet chocolate, vanilla, brown sugar and bourbon notes to the bitter coffee and anise. Medium to heavy bodied, slightly creamy, slightly oily. Really nice beer!!

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2015 Tap, 2013, hopcat- aroma is bourbon, licorice, coffee, and vanilla. Taste has a bit of a harshness to it compared to the no ba version- in a good way, big flavor, a bit of a chalk finish

Cervesa amb un aroma bastant alcoholic, en boca es nota més el gust a xocolata i un amargor torrat. Cerveza con un aroma bastante alcohólico, en boca se nota mas el sabor a chocolate y con un amargor tostado.

jinroh (1061) - ESTONIA - AUG 22, 2015
Pours dark brown, edging black. Aroma is sweet, heavy, sticky with all those dark fruity flavours and a bit of booze. Taste has a lot of sweetness, bourbon barrel coming through nicely, does not feel too heavy but rather nice, great for sipping. Some roast flavour complementing the sensation, vanilla. Great warming beer.
