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.

Oh my goodness! Wonderful heavy aromas of coffee and fruits. Excellent presentation when poured into a wine goblet---great rocky head. Drink this one slow and enjoy. Will really warm you up!

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - NOV 16, 2002
Very high carbonation dark coffee flavor with a definate alcohol taste.With a strong after taste that last’s awhile a definate beer to try again a little pricy at $5/bottle

Nice big aroma with chocolate, figs, alcohol and coffee. A flavour that makes you drool when you’re done: full cherries, roasted malts and coffee. Raisins and other fruits finish off a great imperial stout.

Oh my good lord, this is an incredible beer! This is an absolute ’must-try’ beer! Thick and tasty. High on the alcohol but not in an overpowering way.

I could almost kiss Governor Bob Taft on the lips for allowing us high-ABV beers in Ohio (even though it was dumb we didn’t have them in the first place). This immediately became one of my favorite beers, being the Stout lover I am. Wonderful warming chocolate flavor with an alcohol presence that is not overpowering. Absolutely perfect pour with lacing that lasted to the bottom of the glass. I will be keeping this one in stock at all times.

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.
