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 new bohemia. Nearly black with thick tan head. Malty nose. Classic imperial stout flavor throughout. Creamy with good finish. Nice.

Aus der Flasche. Fast schwarzes Bier mit dunkelbeigen Schaum. Kaffe, Schokolade und Rum Aromen. Wuchtiger Geschmack, fast leicht verbrannt. Man schmeckt den Alkohol. Langer cremiger dickflüssiger Abgang.

Really good imperial stout - nearly a great one. Let’s start with the basics - very dark of course, with a fading coffee coloured head. Full body. Great complexity - we have roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, blackcurrants and other dark fruits, touch of smoke, some leathery tannin. Finish is just a bit too wincingly bitter for me.

Totally black color with beige foam. The aroma is dark roasted. And the carbonation is just perfekt with the heavy body of the beer. The taste itself is dark with hints of smoke and roasted malt. Overall great Russian imperial Stout!

Bottle 12 fl. oz., DrinkHala, Wrocław, Poland.
Czarne piwo z beżową, obfitą, sztywną i puszystą pianą oraz pełnym, kawowo-czekoladowym, lekko palonym aromacie. W smaku pełne, gęste, proste i intensywne, wytrawne, wyraziście kawowe, z lekko goryczkowym, palonym i trochę rozgrzewającym finiszem.

35.5cl bottle, served in Snifter. Pitch black colour with generous tan head, looks amazing. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, biscuit and hints of licorice...really complex. The flavour is mostly dark chocolate (so smooth), backed up by coffee notes, dried fruits, hops and a slight touch of wood...nice because it’s not even oak aged, it would be nice to try it if available someday (I should get the Bourbon Barrel Aged version to start with). Dry and warming finish. Full mouthfeel, perfect carbonation. Excellent classic Imperial Stout.

jawlo (242) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 16, 2015
Aromat: intensywna czekolada, kawa i paloność, w tle śliwki. Wygląd: barwa czarna, piana obfita, beżowa i drobno pęcherzykowa. Smak: potężne uderznie gorzkiej kawy, czekolady i paloności, spora goryczka, nikła słodycz. Tekstua: piwo jest treściwe, ale nie likierowe, wysycenie niskie. Ogólne wrażenie: pyszne piwo, intensywny i złożony aromat oraz świetny smak, gdzie mimo pozornej słodyczy dostajemy potężne uderzenie ciemnych słodów podkreślone sporą goryczką. Piwo degustacyjne.

Pours black with moderate head. Smell a heady chorale of chocolate, coffee & charcoal. Smooth drinking that tastes as it smells with a smidge more hops than usual for the style. Great beer. Has been great for a while. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

L: dark, very dark, and a big fluffy tan head that won’t quit. S: plenty of chocolate and coffee, no real surprises here. T: those same smells come through in the taste, along with a bitterness that feels like a strong-roasted coffee, and quality bitter dark chocolate. F: it’s quite dry and roasty, very full-bodied, yet can be drank a quite quickly, with a smoothness that keeps drawing you in for another sip. O: excellent imperial stout that even hits the spot in the summer months.
