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.

javiercrasher (217) - Granada, SPAIN - APR 6, 2015
De color negro con espuma marrón de burbuja grande y retención media. Aroma a chocolate dulce, maltas tostadas y algo de madera quemada y regaliz. De cuerpo ligero (demasiado para una imperial stout) y bien gasificada. En boca de nuevo aparece el chocolate y el regaliz, con un final suavemente lupulado que equilibra las notas dulces. Todo muy suave y sutil. Los 9º no se notan por ningún lado.

bigericsports (27) - Berkeley, California, USA - APR 4, 2015
UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 Draft Pint @Kip’s, pours black with light brown head, with some lacing that doesn’t last long. Smells caramel and chocolate. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Tastes of caramel, licorice, raisins and chocolate balancing the bitterness of hops. Overall a good imperial stout.

Temptation (255) - - APR 2, 2015
Extraordinary mouthfeel, deep, lingering and complex, with notes to bitter roasted coffee, liquor and black liquorice. The finish is smooth, elegant and velvety, according to its creamy texture. Big beer without being heavy norte cloying. Overwhelming brew.

På Fat Tre små rum. Nu snackar vi Stout. Perfekt balans i doft å smak mellan kaffe choklad torrhet mm., Faaan den bästa Imp Stout som tillverkats. Köp köp än bättre på fat än de flarror jag testat.

SteveOrz85 (70) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2015
12 oz bottle to tulip. Awesome roasty malt aroma. Leather. Leaves. Appearance is black with two finger tan frothy head. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter taste. Light notes of chocolate and more so coffee. Full bodied with a fairly thick texture and average carbonation. Lightly bitter but soft finish. Overall great subject of a Russian Imperial Stout. Full of flavor. Highly recommended to anyone interested in strong stouts.

In short: bitter IStout.
Pours black with some nice tan head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Roasty, coffee aromas. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is quite bitter, dry, roast, strong coffee flavours. Ends dry. Enjoyable.

Tap at Brewdog Gothenburg. Pours ultra Dark brown. Aroma of vanilla and milk chocolate. Taste of salty caramel. It doesn't taste like an imperial stout.
