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.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2004 black as night and just as smooth. This is my fav. imperial stout. If you find it, buy it and enjoy.

Dark black with a nice brown head. Very strong Malt flavors (coffee and strong chocolat). Decent size head with great lacing. Complex taste - strong espresso with a bitter aftertaste and chocolat. Alcohol content well hidden. Malts and hops balanced nicely. Very good beer.

This is one awesome stout. Its strength is deceiving as the beer is really quite mellow and does not give away its high original gravity. Roasted Barley says this brew! The hops are balance perfectly!

Aggie80 (785) - Michigan, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Dark pour with some head and a little lacing. Coffee and chocolate and a touch of fruit in the aroma, with a roasted/burnt finish. First mouthfeel is an impression of hoppiness with the malt undertones. A complex beer buy very enjoyable.

gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Dark brown with red around the edges. Caramel head, not too thick. Alcohol aroma combined with coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor of very strong coffee, toffee, fruit, and bittersweet chocolate all wrapped up in a burnt flavor. Thick, rich and creamy feel. Great mix of classic imperial stout flavors, not at all complex, with a bitter finish. Great beer.

Kevin (2047) - New Mexico, USA - MAY 7, 2004
bottle. nice bitter aroma, slightly orange head and a very dark body. highly alcohol taste, but is consistent. tatste is not unpleasant, chocolate and burnt taste that combines well. this is a good stout. but it is probably too bitter for some, but not for me.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2004
This is a mighty tasty mohambe! Very malty aroma - not entirely burnt, with some grape-like fruitiness. Velvety mouthfeel. Nicely bitter flavor, - hops, chocolate and slight coffee. Alcohol subsides nicely as the beer warms. Slight lingering of burnt coffee. Very nice brew, for sure.

Excellent Imperial Stout. Pours a beautiful black with a brown head. Nice sniffable malty aroma. Taste is of dark chocolate, dark fruit, coffee, roasted malt and generous hops. Not that sweet. Mouthfeel is very full, round and creamy. Leaves a nice burnt aftertaste. Highly recommended!
