COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Produced in the tradition of 18th Century English brewers who supplied the court of Russia’s Catherine the Great, Old Rasputin seems to develop a cult following wherever it goes. It’s a rich, intense brew with big complex flavors and a warming finish.

The Old Rasputin brand image is a drawing of Rasputin with a phrase in Russian encircling it—A sincere friend is not born instantly.

Tap at Brewdog Gothenburg. Pours ultra Dark brown. Aroma of vanilla and milk chocolate. Taste of salty caramel. It doesn't taste like an imperial stout.

Temptation (252) - - APR 2, 2015
Extraordinary mouthfeel, deep, lingering and complex, with notes to bitter roasted coffee, liquor and black liquorice. The finish is smooth, elegant and velvety, according to its creamy texture. Big beer without being heavy norte cloying. Overwhelming brew.

SteveOrz85 (51) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2015
12 oz bottle to tulip. Awesome roasty malt aroma. Leather. Leaves. Appearance is black with two finger tan frothy head. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter taste. Light notes of chocolate and more so coffee. Full bodied with a fairly thick texture and average carbonation. Lightly bitter but soft finish. Overall great subject of a Russian Imperial Stout. Full of flavor. Highly recommended to anyone interested in strong stouts.

Torrefacto (783) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 27, 2015
Negro opaco con espuma beis abundante. Aromsa lupulados herbales con tostados y café. Cuerpo medio-alto, quizá demasiado carbonatada, con inicio achocolatado, sabor herbal y final de amargor moderado y acafetado.

Köpt på norrlands, Uppsala. Svagt rostade toner, en del kakao i både smak och doft. En bra imperial stout men inget speciellt.

tectactoe (2925) - Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle: Inky black with a highlight of dark brown at the very edges; thick & viscous pour with a fine mesh of leathery-tan bubbled grouped up top. Aroma contains huge bouts of unsweetened dark cacao beans, bitter espresso, huge roasted malt with the lightest underpinning of burnt brown sugar sweetness. Flavor is a bit more complex, opening up with 86% cacao dark chocolate, raw cocoa powder, charred & ashy malt, roasted nuts, bitter coffee with a woodsy & earthy undertone, heavy herbaceous & leafy hop scores towards the back-end, & a kiss of smoky anise in the finish. Lingers forever & coats the palate with flavors of herbal wood, smoke, coffee beans, & even some faint tobacco leaves. Dry & bitter for the style, heavy mouth feel. Really good stuff.
