COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seems hard to believe that we’ve been making Old Rasputin for 10 years now, but that’s what’s happened. And, to celebrate the occasion, we’ve brewed a special small batch that’s been aged for 9 months in some 12 year-old bourbon barrels. It’s bottled in 500 ml bottles with a cork and wired finish and a special commemorative label ---- and it’s 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.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2018 This is a special BBA Stout, because unlike any other BBA stout, you really really get the wood flavor in the beer. It really adds to the overall flavor and gives this beer a really unique standing.

Bacchus66 (999) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 13, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2018 Tap, ADT. Black with brown edges and a full tan head. Lots going on, dark chocolate, vanilla, nuts, bourbon barrel, roasted/burnt malt, dried fruit. Full bodied, though the alcohol is relatively understated for 12+. Dark finish is long and warming. Delicious.

Bullit (4790) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 12, 2018
Bottle from Premier Gourmet. Black coloured. Coffee, coffee cream, vanilla, bit alcoholic. Quite some coffee bitterness.

TomTron (462) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2018 I was only thirteen, and they were going to have me psychoanalyzed and all, because I broke all the windows in the garage. I don't blame them. I really don't. I slept in the garage the night he died, and I broke all the goddam windows with my fist, just for the hell of it. I even tried to break all the windows on the station wagon we had that summer, but my hand was already broken and everything by that time, and I couldn't do it. It was a very stupid thing to do, I'll admit, but I hardly didn't even know I was doing it, and you didn't know Allie.

BenDover (233) - Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2017
Pours a deep brown, half inch or more of fizzy, sudsy foam that becomes more dense and meringue-like as it fades. Aroma is roasty, malty, and chocolatey. Taste is of roasted malt, coffee, and bourbon. Fairly thick mouthfeel. Alcohol burn on the finish. Terrific stuff.

trapped (3774) - New York, TURKEY - DEC 31, 2017
Bottle, XVII version. Pours inky black with large creamy beige head, woodsy mocha aroma with alcohol undertones, low carbonation, bitter woodsy mocha taste, strong alcohol undertones, thick smooth body, long bitter woodsy finish. Nicely aged, potent brew.

It pours black with a dark brown head. The head retention is excellent. It has a strong chocolate aroma with notes of bourbon and vanilla. There are low notes of dark fruits like plums are in the background and light notes of roast. There are strong roasted and bourbon flavors. There are also background notes of dark fruits, vanilla, wood, chocolate, slight burnt elements, and a bit of coffee. It has a full body with a sharp bitter aftertaste, although it is not harsh. Overall, an excellent combination of flavors and aroma notes make this an excellent tasting beer.

katrinaez (2355) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2017 dark brown to black color. aroma is sweet brown sugars with tobacco and burnt molasses. taste is a great balance of bourbon, roasted malts, bitter dark cooking chocolate nibs and some woody oak. palate is thick but balanced. tap

4.4
Goodgrief (2069) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - DEC 9, 2017
On tap at Pinocchio’s. Dark cola pour, amber hue, nice hear and lacing. Roast and mild bourbon aroma. Coffee is actually stronger than the bourbon. It’s not overpowering. Well done. An improvement on the regular OR.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2017 Pours black with heavy, thick foamy head. Aroma is heavy bourbon with chocolate notes. Taste is chocolate and caramel moving to bourbon. A very tasty bourbon stout.
