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.

bottle...semi transparent deep garnet pour (dark red light seen as glass is held up to light). Small light brown head...gone in an instant. Fruity, vineous aroma. Roasted chocolate malt, coffee, and butterscotch evident in the nose also. Smells really nice. Not overly sweet, burnt/roasted malt flavors, some strong coffee. Nice hop presence to balance it all. Really nice bitter finish, alcohol hardly evident. Slightly oily mouthfeel, not overly chewy. A good imperial stout in my opinion.

Pours jet black into a snifter. Fruit and roasted chocolate aromas. Head quickly disspates to hug edge of glass. Medium sweet and heavy bitter -- almost like a chocolate espresso bean.

OldRaspy (292) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Pour was black with a tan head. This one is best served at about 50 - 55 degrees. The chocolate and caramel come out at this time and you get a nice achohol kick at the end.

Old Rasputin pours smooth, small tan head. A very rich and robust flavor but will leave you thirsty afterwards. It’s a worthwhile everyday drink but limit it to two or less, prefereable one. This isn’t a frat/puke beer.

stouts are not tops on my list but this one could change my mind. coffee and raison aroma. It taste like the same coffee and dark chocolate. What makes this special to me is the bitter finish with no trace of alcohol. I’ll have to pick this up again

Equal parts coffee, chocolate, and alcohol. The sweet chocolate and bitter coffee compliment each other particularly well.

Capa (2727) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2006
Poured black with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Tasted of coffee and chocolate with some alcoholic warming also. A great stout that I’m sure I will be enjoying over and over again.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2006 Pours black with a beige head. Very rich, slightly rumlike. Aromas of caramel, coffee, chocolate and alcohol. Creamy and very full bodied. A bit of sourness in the finish. Very nice. Re(blind)rated at sk8viking’s: 7-3-7-3-15
