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.

Pours a pitch black color, with a decent beige head, which collapses to a thick coating, especially at the edges of the glass. Smells of toffee coated, coca-cola infused malts, accompanied by honey and skunky milk. Reveals a toasted malts counterpart, giving the sticky sweetness a certain balance. Has a low carbonation with a soft mouthfeel and bubbly finish, offering a medium bodied beer, while ending with a warming honey peak. Tastes of toffee, balanced by bread, whichs sweet character gets accentuated by caramel dipped grain toast. Reveals phenolic, biting coffee, while the beers sweetness gets expanded by more caramel, somewhat balanced by the coffee’s bitterness. Finishes with earthy, crushed coffee, followed by a rock sugar ending, which still allowes the coffee to come through. Drinks smooth, while its taste varies between being sticky sweet and a bitter blend, commuting from coffee to grassy hops.

Pours jet black as it should for the style, tan head, quite strong carbonation it seems. Aroma tells me this is geared more towards the English approach than the sweeter American imperials, lot´s of dark bitter malts, some dark coffee and chocolate tones, dark fruits. Taste confirms my thoughts, very nice and balanced classic Russian imperial. The roasted tones are there as well as subtle elements of coffee and chocolate, but compared to for example the yeti this one lacks the slight sweetness found in that one. My new standard mark for a perfect traditional Russian imperial stout! Bottle from Saveur Biere.

Bottle from Beer Garden (Madrid). Average brownish head with low retention, leaving a thin layer. Very dark brown colour, black appearance. Aroma is dark dried fruits and chocolate. Taste is rich and complex, with brownie, chocolate, roasted malt, dried dark fruits, prune, biscuit and black coffee. No burnt wood nor charcoal flavour. It is really a great Imperial Stout.

Great imperial stout... Rich and flavorful without astringency or harsh alcohol notes. Dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, dark fruit, sweet alcohol. Flavor lingers. Nice balancing hop bitter and roast flavors. Great beer.

Pours black opaque with creamy stable, brown head. Aroma is one of the best parts: Divine note of Kona coffee, with hints of chocolate, cocoa powder, vanilla, but without any trace of an alcohol. Flavor: smooth taste of coffee with notes of chocolate, cocoa powder and vanilla. Malt sweetness is perfectly balanced with, typical for american style of imperial stouts, almost high hop bitterness. Body is soft and sticky, finish is dry, mouth-coating, carbonation is low. One of the best imperial stouts.

노스 코스트 브루잉 - 올드 라스푸틴 러시안 임페리얼 스타우트 9% ABV 한국에 일찌기 수입되어 동종 맥주의 대표격인 러시안 임페리얼 스타우트. 벨런스로만 치면 파운더스와 함께 최강을 자랑하는 웰메이드 레시피 마시고 난 뒤 커피 원두 탓인지 입안이 정갈하게 정리되는게 기분이 좋다. 한국에 탭으로도 수입되어있는&# 알고있는데 니트로탭과의 궁합도 궁금해진다. 개인적으로 한쪽에 치우친 개성파 맥주들을 즐기는 편이지만 만드는 입장에서는 벨런스 잡기가 더 어려울듯 러፼ 임페리얼 스타우트는 익히 알려져있다시&# 18세기 예카테리나 2세 치하의 러시아로 수출 되었던 런던 제조 맥주. 발틱지역에서 인기가 높아 이지역에서 흉내내어 생산하던것이 나중에 발틱포터로 자리잡는다 https:

Not bad for an easily attainable beer. One of the first craft beers that i have had and probably helped get me to try more. Would recommend to any russian imperial stout drinkers.
