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.

From the 12 oz bottle. This is a very good stout that pretty much delivers on all fronts. It’s pretty, it’s tasty and it smells great. Plus it has great mouth feel and finishes nicely. I’ll put it in the rotation as the perfect after dinner ale.

This is the most aromatic beer I have sniffed in some time. The aroma absolutely explodes with dark rich malts, alcohol, and a light funk. The body is heavy and the taste is thick with roasty malt and coffee. The finish brings out elements of dried fruit like raisins or prunes. The beer hides its alcohol well and is smooth on the finish. There is a proper bitterness. Overall, a fantastic brew.

Probably the best imperial stout I’ve tried. Very nice smokey, roasted feeling to it. Smell is great makes you want it right from the pour. Over all a wonderful beer. I had this from a bottle.

Really well made imperial stout that is a real delight to drink. Could have had some more roasted tones to it, but still very very good.

On draft with nitro into a tulip. Rich tan creamy head with ample lacing. Toasty malt aromas. Creamy mouth feel, with toasty, mocha palate, ending in a roasted chocolate bitterness. Alcohol shows itself as the beer warms, and it packs a punch. I can see the appeal, but too strong for me.

Chocolate and slight licorice on the nose. Beautiful tan lingering head. Chewy mouth feel with warming alcohol. Flavour is balanced roast, chocolate and hint of dried dark fruit -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10
