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.

Lots of everything! Big flavor, dark and delicious. One or two is enough unless you’re looking for trouble. By far the best beer North Coast offers.

Abijen (2104) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2015
Donker bruin rood bier met een goede beige schuim kraag. Ruikt fruitig, chocolade. Smaakt koffie, geroosterd, fruitig, chocolade. Iets te fruitig? voor een stout.

Veel schuim dat wel mooi inzakt. Zwart. Ruikt vooral cacao, lekker. Weer ook de chocolade bitterheid. Vrij weinig nasmaak. En iets teveel carbo.

Tap on Nitro at gravity, pours black, aroma of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts, taste is similar but more mild, I feel like the nitro took away from this some, will retry.

matbli (143) - Poznań, POLAND - OCT 2, 2015
bottle 355 ml, pours dark brown wth shny reddish reflexes what is a sign that it’s quite clear. The brownish colored head is very pillowy and stable. Aroma is mainly chocolatte and coffee witht some additional wood, caramel, soy sauce, roasted grain and a touch of dried fruits. Aroma is quite complex but it’s not very intensive. Medium bodied, I wish it would be a bit heavier. n taste medium sweetness with a lot of roasty bitterness that is quite intensive for the style. Finish is a bit ashy what dsturbs a bit the comfort of drinking.

Bottle shared. Black with big creamy beige head. Lots of dark chocolate, roasted grains, English hops, light creamy and yeasty with a touch of old wood and dead leaves. Roasted bitterness with almost medium sweetness. Over medium bodied with creamy carbonation and light alcoholic finish. Very nice.

KW92 (682) - WARSAW, POLAND - SEP 22, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, bardzo wysoka, trwała. Pięknie zdobi szkło.
AROMAT: Intensywny. Klasyczny RIS-owo aromat. Zboża, nuty beczkowe, żywica, zioła, kakao, kawa, nuty owocowe, waniliowe, alkohol. Dobrze zbalansowane.
SMAK: Likierowe. Słodowość, kawa, kakao. Posmak żywiczno-ziołowy. Alkohol całkiem dobrze wkomponowany.
OGÓLNIE: Bardzo udany RIS. Aromat i smak na wysokim poziomie. Jak dla mnie ciało mogło być być bardziej "gęste", jednakże już teraz jest naprawdę dobrze.
