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.

dark opaque black pour, with a small tan head. coffee, anise, alcohol are detectable in the aroma. good roasty, coffee flavor, a little sweet, but a lasting roasty/bitter finish. pretty good thick mouthfeel, and the alcohol isnt terribly noticable. a good imperial, and probably the best bargain imperial stout i’ve had at 1.65 a 12 oz.

Jonathan3584 (323) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2005 Great black oil pour with an aroma of too strong coffee underneath a dark tan head. Exceptionally complex. Notes of bitter chocolate, roasted coffee, caramel, a bit of hop bitterness followed by a good alcohol warming. This is a great beer. My only complaint, which is standard fare for most imperials, is that the higher alcohol thins out the texture more than I would like.

bottle. a very dark great looking pour with a smallish tan head. rich and full mouthfeel with strong coffee flavors. the coffee overpowers everything in this stout. I enjoyed it but its not one I could drink very often.

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2006 tan head, i can smell vanilla, alcohol, some coffee, mad roastyness, very pleasing. Tastes of dark/bitter chocolate, some sweet and fruity charachteristics, and quite a bit of alcohol and roast on the finish. Bitterness lingers for a long time. Very full and rich feeling in the mouth. Wonderfully complex. This is a very delicious beer.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAR 16, 2005
Very dark brown/black pour underneah a tall brown creamy head and lacing like velcro. Intense aroma of roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, caramel, chocolate with a touch of smoke & peat. Depth & complexity of flavors though they all followed the aromas without any noticable additions save for a hint of alcohol up front and again in the finish. Speaking of the finish, this one is as good as an imperial stout can be - long, creamy, sweet, warming and just fantastic. Paired this with a rich chocolate cake to cap off an otherwise great meal but this stout would turn a plate of corn dogs into a King’s feast!

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 15, 2005
Pours a dark brown with tan head. Head stays. Smells of roasted chocolate, caramel, a little bit sweet. Taste is of chocolate with a hint of coffee and caramel.
