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.

mR_fr0g (7265) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2015
On tap at hop water distribution. One of the most rated beers that I missing. Opaque black dark mahogany brown coloured pour with a big lasting creamy light tan head. Aroma is dark cocoa, toasted coconut, dark fruit, black malt, rich dark chocolate. Flavour is composed of milky chocolate, dark coffee, bitter roast, some rusty penny metallic, copper notes. Hides the abv relatively well. Just a little bite in the finish. Palate is medium milky bodied, smooth, slightly creamy, moderate carbonation. Finish holds some dark fruits, woody tannin and bitter roast. Decent.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours a black and dark brown color with a nice tan head and good lacing. The aroma is coffee, dark chocolate, and alcohol. The taste is coffee, roasty, dark chocolate, burnt sugar, milk, some hops, and a very slight alcohol hint. This is balanced very nicely. It hides the alcohol nicely. It’s complex, smooth, and tasty. The picture on the bottle is creepy.

Dark, thick appearance, with a tan head that lasts for a while, Nice chocolate and espresso aroma. Full bodied, chocolaty, and a little creamy. Not overly boozy for an imperial.
