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.

Pours a dark brown with little head and lacing. Aroma of dark fruit and chocolate with oak from barrel. Taste of coffee grounds with hint of bourbon. Roasted malt mid palate and finishes with dark chocolate. Medium mouthfeel and medium bodied. High carbonation that I don't really like for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strykzone (6750) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2016
Sampled at Llewylens Barrel Aged Blow Out event during STL CBW. Black with just a little foam. What I want a bourbon barrel aged stout to smell like. Nice. Just a little char here with big roast. Bourbon is nice. Earth and huge malts. Dark fruit. Warming. Subtleties can come through despite this being a big beer. Very well done.
