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.

Das Etikett liess mich erschaudern, daher gibt es boshafterweise hier ein paar Minuspunkte. Das Piwo an sich ist jedoch stark, reich an Aromen und sehr tiefgruendig. Mit ordentlich Kaffee, Roestmalzen, Getreide und ein bisschen Krautern. Nicht schlecht.

My reasons for first buying this are 1. North coast produces Brother Thelonious that I really lke which made me think that 2. They rpduced good Imperial Stout which they do. Malty, sweet, chocolaty and yummy. Not very technical but fitting

Bottle, black with light brown head. Aroma was very roasty, a little coffee. Taste was really nice, coffee, roasted malts, nice hops, slight bitterness. Extremely smooth.

Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a deep black colour with a smooth head and smooth body. Aroma of malt, coffee and roast. Taste of intense malt, roasted coffee beans, chocolate, cake and woods. Smooth to drink, yet I expected more deepness.

A dark brew, with a boom of bitter coffee straight up. I probably should have had a warm up beer first. The malty and toffeed taste with chocolate comes up. The malty earthy aromas really linger in the mouth with a warmth. I appreciate the style but this isn’t for me.

Big and bold but not overpowering. Intensely and complexly flavored but difficult to pin down the components. I'll keep drinking and trying.... A really good Russian Imperial Stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
