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.

Intensely carbonated, strong roasted coffee, chocolate, cinnamon flavors. Very unique taste, alcohol is quite noticable. Interesting, good.

Dark body with a brown head. Nose of molasses, candy, plastic bag(?), coffee, then alcohol. Black licorice and coffee/espresso taste. Alcohol aftertaste.

Very dark, head lasts longer than on most stouts. Great flavors--very complex. Burnt flavors and maltiness abound. Terrific beer.

pauliefrog99 (302) - FLINT, Michigan, USA - NOV 1, 2002
Good stuff. Very complex. I picked up coffee licorice tastes. A bit thin. Not quite as thick as Bell’s Expedition Stout. Still a great stout. Very flavorful.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - NOV 1, 2002
The aroma is astonishing--deep coffee and floral hops. Huge sweeping dark, complex malt drying out perfectly. Better than Budweiser.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2004 Intense, tart fruit nose. Explosion of flavors, this one is in a class with very few other stouts. Sweet chocolate, tartness (hops and alcohol), strong coffee. Flavor stays with you a long time. Memorable.

Under-age Drinker (96) - Colorado, USA - OCT 31, 2002
Drank this with the Cali Crew. Had a Tower of Power type nose (refering to the American Galdiator). Reminded me of Christmas time when I get to eat chocolate cookies. Sweet finish and full mouth feel.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2002
This is an incredible stout. A little more hoppy than more conventional Imperial Stouts, but great nonetheless. Highly Recommended.

Kevbo99 (149) - Dunmore, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2002
It was very good but it was nothing like any other imperial stout i had ever had before. Very hoppy, and a slight chocolate undertone makes this something to try.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 23, 2002
One of my favorite imperials right behind storm king. Possible a little more bitter. Smooth and sweet with lots of different malts used. Lots of coffee flavors from roasted barley. Worth the 4.50 at the bar.
