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.

Really well made imperial stout that is a real delight to drink. Could have had some more roasted tones to it, but still very very good.

On draft with nitro into a tulip. Rich tan creamy head with ample lacing. Toasty malt aromas. Creamy mouth feel, with toasty, mocha palate, ending in a roasted chocolate bitterness. Alcohol shows itself as the beer warms, and it packs a punch. I can see the appeal, but too strong for me.

Chocolate and slight licorice on the nose. Beautiful tan lingering head. Chewy mouth feel with warming alcohol. Flavour is balanced roast, chocolate and hint of dried dark fruit -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Fantastic! Really special malt went in to this baby. It's sooo rich, and decadent. Definitely worthy of an empress. You can read other reviews with the technical bits, just try it!

No head black as the night color with a complex roasted malt aroma that is very complex. Notes of coffee chocolate and spice. Fairly strong hop flavor that lingers on the palate.

Very heavy texture. Thick flavor of dark chocolate/coffee. It’ll sneak up on you. Two of them is the perfect amount.
