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.

Pullo @ Saveur-Biere. Kaatuu snifteriin mustana, melko paksun noin 2,5 sormen paksuisen vaahdon suojaamana. Tuoksussa on reilusti paahdetta ja tummaa suklaata, lakritsisuuden tukemana. Hieman kermaisen puolelle suklaa kääntyy nuuskuttelemalla. Tuoksusta 8+. Maussa paahde on hyvin vahvaa, ollen jo kahvista (tuoksussa ei siis ollut), myös tummaa suklaata on reilusti etenkin alkumaussa. Loppua kohden tasapainottuu ja kermaisempia ja makeampia hedelmäisiä makuja tulee joukkoon. Suutuntuma on napakan katkeroitu, muuten hyvin täyteläinen ja öljyinen. Upeaa tasapainoa, todella laadukkaasti tehty IS. Vähemmän humaloitu jos olisi ollut, niin todellinen täysosuma olisi edessä.

From bottle, pours with the viscosity of motor oil. Black like Putin’s heart, deep smokey flavor with a smooth finish.

Sampled this lovely concoction at the North Coast Brewery tap room, and it immediately shot to the top of my brew list. Hearty feel and a full, rich flavour; this is very drinkable and satisfying for dark beef lovers, and surprisingly smooth.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2016 Excellent. Pretty intense aroma, which is roasted malts, some coffee and light hops. Taste is sweet and bitter. Great presence of malts and sugar. Overall, pretty balanced, with medium carbonation and a long-dry finish.

polo_marco (261) - milton, Vermont, USA - MAY 4, 2016
Smells of roasted malts with hints of chocolate and coffee. Nice deep dark black color with no head. Taste of roasted malts with bitter chocolate hues in between the flavor profile. Full body stout with flat like carbonation. Nice stickiness on the tougue with a Nice smooth finish booziness hidden very well. Bitters come out nicely throughout the flavor profile. A very nice west cost stout.

mgajdaczewa (1522) - Katowice, POLAND - APR 28, 2016
Legenda mocno nie daje rady. W aromacie przede wszystkim silne nuty żelaziste, po ogrzaniu i opadnięciu piany ciemna czekolada, lżejsza kawa. W smaku żelazo rzutuje na całokształt na tyle silnie, że mimo przyjemnej pełni, czekolady i względnie kremowej strukturze trzeba piwo ocenić nisko. Na finiszu wysoka goryczka, paloność popiół. Słabiutko!

Le top pour un amateur de la bière noire américaine. Un plaisir gustatif, le pouvoir de la bière.
