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: AUG 31, 2005 Bottle, pours a dark chocolately brown with a thick creamy dark tan head. A beautifully sweet malty aroma. NIce coffie, slight toffie nose. Not a heavy mouth feel. Sweet malty taste with some coffie bitterness and a slight alcohol burn , excellent beer.

Pours very dark brown with a persistent khaki head. Good lacing, too. The aroma wasn’t that great, but there was a nice smooth palate. Flavor is mostly bitter chocolate, some coffee, and a hoppy finish. The alcohol is much less present than one would expect from 9%. Good beer, but I do wish it had a touch more complexity.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 8, 2005
Black in color with a lasting off-white head. Coffee and dark chocolate aroma with no real alcohol in the nose. Delicious beer is strong on the dark roasted coffee flavors with just a hint of the chocolate from the nose along with a creamy finish. Delightful.

dark and thick and satisfying. this was a great imperial stout, and only 8 bucks for a 4 pack. taste was a little on the sweet side. scary how well the alcohol was hidden in the 9 % 2 bottles dissappeared rather fast. this beer would make a good night cap or breakfast or afternoon snack or

bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - AUG 4, 2005
Pours a pitch black color with a surprisingly small creamy colored head. Roasted coffee and dark chocolate best describe the scent. Taste can be described as coffeeish, dark chocolates and slightly oaked bourbon. I think storm king is still better

Deeep black with a thin tan head. Coo coo for choco coffee aroma. My mom used to make a rich chocolate dessert with Hershey’s unsweetened chocolate. This reminds me of that dessert (that I haven’t had in 25 years). Absolutely worth the drink. :)

porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2005
On tap. A true master of an Imperial Stout. Deep black pour with a nice tan head. Smells of deeply roasted malts and coffee and chocolate. Very big, thick mouthfeel. Lots of hops and roasted barley flavors. Very roasty, did i mention its raosty?? Well you get the idea, so get yourself some as well.

A deep black color with a creamy, fully lasting brown head. A roasted aroma with hints of chocolate. A nice coffee taste and full mouthfeel with a pleasant aftertaste.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 1, 2005
Pours an opaque dark brown with tiny hints of ruby. Dense tan head. No real lacing to speak of. Smells rich and malty. Creamy chocolate, milky, rich alcohol and vanilla. Taste is just amazing. It’s rich with lightly roasty malt flavors. Bittersweet chocolate. Some roasted coffee bean in the finish that becomes more pronounced as it warms. It’s lightly sticky in the mouth and very full bodied. a lingering coffee bitterness. The balance of sweetness and bitterness is just fantastic. I love it. An old favorite I can’t believe I hadn’t reviewed yet.

very dark, strong alcholo flavour, had on tap at Sheraton LAX brewpub. Decent stout, strong enough to truly be classified as an ’imperial’ stout.
