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.

Deep black body with a tall, persistent beige head. Aroma is vanille, meringue, some coffee. Taste is bitter, with the pleasant notes of above. Medium body, soft carbonation.

Wow! Pours clear pitch black in the glass with a thick fine bubbled coffee colored head. Sweet caramel malty greatness. Great dark chocolate smoothness that roasts across to an espresso bite. If it’s an option, the answer is YES!

Rated base on notes taken 7 Dec 12 -- The standard from which all RIS should be measured. A very nice chocolate roasty beer. Will never go out of favor.

Imperial stout avvolgente e ricca di note di caffé, cioccolato che scivolano in un denso abbraccio alcolico, ma non eccessivo. Molto molto buona.

Poured from bottle bought at local boutique. Pours thick and dark. Not much head and it faded quickly. Smells like sweet malt and coffee. Medium mouthfeel with a significant amount of carbonation. Sweet up front changing to coffee and then leaving a bitter finish.

Look: pours dark black. Light brown fluffy head. Smell: heavy chocolate. Roasted malts. Vanilla. Taste: chocolate. Roasted malts. Minimal bitter coffee. Feel: medium carbonation. Slight dryness leaves wanting another taste. Overall: love the aroma. Wish the taste matched it more closely. First drank: home 11/16/14

On tap at Brewdog Cardiff. Pours very dark brown, thick fluffy tan head, looks gorgeous. Aromas of roasted coffee, chocolate, dark fruits and vanilla. Taste is nice strong roasted coffee bitterness, a light-medium sweetness. The alcohol is well balanced, full body, smooth thick mouthfeel, warming finish. Excellent.

This is a perfect ImpRusStout. Rich burnt caramel nose, Teflon smooth mouthfeel & rich coffee/chocolate aftertaste. Like drinking milk from a Russian cow crossbred with cocoa beans that have been caught up in an unfortunate accidental nuclear bomb explosion forming positive mutation offspring...or something.

Tapp på BottleRock LA. Svart med tjock hasselnötsfärgat skum. Doftar sött av choklad och karamell. Smaken är söt med inslag av kaffebeska och karamell. Lite spritig eftersmak tyvärr.
