Seems hard to believe that weve been making Old Rasputin for 10 years now, but thats whats happened. And, to celebrate the occasion, weve brewed a special small batch thats been aged for 9 months in some 12 year-old bourbon barrels. Its bottled in 500 ml bottles with a cork and wired finish and a special commemorative label ---- and its amazing. The depth, intensity and complexity of the flavor profile make it a worthy tribute to this fine beer.

This entry is for all anniversary Bourbon BA Old Rasputin releases.

Rasputin XII. Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Shared at the Houston RB Tasting in October. Pours black with a thin tan head. Nose is bourbon, of course. Taste is of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate tootsie roll. Mouthfeel is dry. Good, but not great. Like the regular Old Rasputin better.

Bottle. Pours a black color with a large, tight brown head. Aromas of chocolate, bourbon, and roasted malts. Palate is extremely smooth with a creamy mouthfeel. Taste is heaven with bourbon, chocolate, and other malts. This is a great one!

LilBeerDoctor (3821) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Bottle. Pours black with a thick light tan head. Aroma of bourbon, roasted malt, bitter chocolate, slight booze. Flavor is chalky with bitter chocolate and chocolate malt, roasted malt, light bourbon notes, toffee, caramel malt. Decent beer, but I wouldnt say its good enough to warrant the hefty price. 7/4/7/4/15 [3.7/5]

The aroma carries strong vanilla bean ice cream notes with some caramal and charred bourbon soaked wood. Black is the color with a deep tan head that fades fairly quickly. It is smooth with chocolatey tase and a an alcohol finish.

Bottle cheers to pops. when i was talking with him about this beer i commented if it was a wine it would be boreaux in terms of how refined it tastes. beautiful gorgeous complex nose, that isnt in your face buttery smoky coffee notes. chocolate, flowery notes as well. mouthfeel is pure velvet. buttery bitter taste chocolate, long dry hop finish. this beer is extremely refined like a fine wine. it is absolutely gorgeous. the wood is a great addition to his beer i think. because it works alongside the beer, not overpowering it with other barrel aged beers. beautiful.

(on bottle) Most surtainlt has got that bourbon going in the aroma; sweet, cornish and quite alcoholic. Got tobacco, vanilla, peach, with a tar-thing hovering above it all. Very complex indeed. And the smoothness are also very much "indeed" here, like liking cream. Perfect balance with the carbonation. The balance between sugars and hops are spot on, as are the alcohol in the long finish. This is a sophisticated beer and overwhelming too. I would drink this in smallquantaties, had I the posibility the have it again.

Bottle: Poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was bourbon, dark chocolate, and roasted malts. The flavor was creamy, dark chocolate, toffee, coffee, and bourbon. This was like drinking a milk shake with a hint of bourbon. Overall, this was excellent!!
