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.

Great beer, with a rich flavor. Very smooth for a dark beer with a high alcohol content. Nice label design too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Excellent imperial stout. A bit lighter on the mouthfeel than I would have expected. Good appearance, strong and complex coffee/caramel malt character with a great bitterness balance.

Draft at Yard House in a shaker glass. Pitch black with unusually creamy tan head for an imperial stout. More bitter finish than I prefer for this style, overwhelms the palate somewhat.

Bottle at tasting. Black oily pour, no head. Aroma of vanilla and chocolate. Taste of bitter chocolate, roasted malt, mild vanilla and bitters. Thick mouthfeel. Very nice.

Pours a dark, thick cola brown. Aroma is smoky with hints of coffee. Flavor is full of smoky chocolate malt. Drier than I expected. Coffee and tobacco. Definitely very good.

The best there is. Drink three of these and nightly night. Best stout on the market. Sorry Guinness. Only wish it was easier to find in Pennsylvania

North coast makes good beer, and this is no exception. Obviously, looking at its rating, I’m not alone in realizing how good this is.

mrjez (64) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUL 18, 2015
On tap at TNT Taisho opening party. L: dark, very dark, and a big fluffy tan head that won’t quit. S: plenty of chocolate and coffee, no real surprises here. T: those same smells come through in the taste, along with a bitterness that feels like a strong-roasted coffee, and quality bitter dark chocolate. F: it’s quite dry and roasty, very full-bodied, yet can be drank a quite quickly, with a smoothness that keeps drawing you in for another sip. O: excellent imperial stout that even hits the spot in the summer months.

This is a nice strong imperial, chocolaty stout, good flavor, with an okay after taste. Great aroma, and it looks like a chocolate milkshake. Great mouth feel. Overall a nice beer is happily drink again, but wouldn’t seek out.
