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.

butelka, warka do nienapisali :) fajna, trwala dosc i ladnie brudzaca pokal piana. aromat intensywny, slodko, ciemno owocowy, porto, chleb ciemny, czekolada, bakalie jakies (rodzynki). generalnie obiecuje cos slodkiego. pojawiaja sie tez kawowe nuty, toffi,wanilia, palonosc. W ustach sredni- pelni, dosc gladki, srednio- wysycony, mniej slodki niz aromaty obiecywaly, mocno palony i mocno goryczkowy. bardzo dobry acz zarazem nie sprostal swojej legendzie ;)

Bijl (149) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2016
Pikzwarte RIS met een karamelbruine schuimkraag. Kraag is flink aanwezig maar zakt snel in om een mooi laagje over te laten. Aroma van chocolade, mocha, geroosterd, donker fruit zoetig, iets hout en een vanille noot. Ook wat alcohol merkbaar in de neus maar dit is zeker niet vervelend. Smaak: Pure donkere chocolade bitter, koffieroasted, zoethout, vanille, en een flinke hopbitter. Koolzuur is weinig, volle body en zacht / romig mondgevoel. Lekker wat alcohol warmte. Bitter / droog in de afdronk. Genieten!

Towey1989 (1660) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2016
Keg at The Junkyard, Nottingham. A black colour with a creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, liquorice, coffee, dark chocolate, some alcohol, slight brown sugar and subtle smoke. Taste of roasted malts, liquorice, coffee, dark chocolate, some bourbon, slight alcohol, a little brown sugar, a hint of caramel and subtle treacle. Full bodied and a creamy texture. A long, roasted, treacley finish. A superb imperial stout, really rich, roasty and creamy. Full of spicy, roasted, chocolatey flavours, slightly boozy and goes down really well. Great.

Pullo @ Saveur-Biere. Kaatuu snifteriin mustana, melko paksun noin 2,5 sormen paksuisen vaahdon suojaamana. Tuoksussa on reilusti paahdetta ja tummaa suklaata, lakritsisuuden tukemana. Hieman kermaisen puolelle suklaa kääntyy nuuskuttelemalla. Tuoksusta 8+. Maussa paahde on hyvin vahvaa, ollen jo kahvista (tuoksussa ei siis ollut), myös tummaa suklaata on reilusti etenkin alkumaussa. Loppua kohden tasapainottuu ja kermaisempia ja makeampia hedelmäisiä makuja tulee joukkoon. Suutuntuma on napakan katkeroitu, muuten hyvin täyteläinen ja öljyinen. Upeaa tasapainoa, todella laadukkaasti tehty IS. Vähemmän humaloitu jos olisi ollut, niin todellinen täysosuma olisi edessä.

From bottle, pours with the viscosity of motor oil. Black like Putin’s heart, deep smokey flavor with a smooth finish.

Sampled this lovely concoction at the North Coast Brewery tap room, and it immediately shot to the top of my brew list. Hearty feel and a full, rich flavour; this is very drinkable and satisfying for dark beef lovers, and surprisingly smooth.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2016 Excellent. Pretty intense aroma, which is roasted malts, some coffee and light hops. Taste is sweet and bitter. Great presence of malts and sugar. Overall, pretty balanced, with medium carbonation and a long-dry finish.

Smells of roasted malts with hints of chocolate and coffee. Nice deep dark black color with no head. Taste of roasted malts with bitter chocolate hues in between the flavor profile. Full body stout with flat like carbonation. Nice stickiness on the tougue with a Nice smooth finish booziness hidden very well. Bitters come out nicely throughout the flavor profile. A very nice west cost stout.
