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.

Hanoi (548) - Greater Manchester, - MAY 2, 2014
Nose is chocolate, espresso and some dark fruits; very muted in my pour. Taste is rich dark bitter chocolate, a little espresso, emerging cherry and a touch of smoke and cream. Mouthfeel is thick and rich. An excellent imperial stout, but I am little bemused by the paroxysms of delight it is producing in some.

A great imperial stout, full of chocolate and coffee, but also very easy to drink.

teddybeer (2502) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 17, 2015
Black color with a frothy beige head with medium durationand nice lacework. Aroma has notes of coffee beans, chocolate and vanilla hints. Flavor is roasty, notes of black ripe fruit, mainly raisins and plumbs, coffee and black chocolate. Smooth sensation in the final with roasted and light bittery notes.

Turtles (155) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2015
Tap @ Bishop Arms Hornsgatan. Smoky and burnt aroma of mocha and booze. Black in the glass with a bubbly tan head. Enormous taste !! As if someone hits an iron pipe straight into my jaw. Hops, smoke, licorice, chocolate. Many complex flavors, sweet and dry at the same time.

Tasted on Nitro @ Meddlesome Moth Nose - toasted nuts and light coffee beans. Taste - A thinner palate than I would like. It enters soft and light with expression beans and chocolate. Finish is a tad bitter as it leans on the Java for weight. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

javiercrasher (215) - 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.

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.
