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.

Another barrel aged stout. Standard vanilla and bourbon flavors. Good, but I’ve had better.

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

Goodgrief (2062) - 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.

Nuts, chocolate, licorice, fairly tart and grapey, medium dry finish, nice sweet balance, not sticky, alcohol is present but warming, although my one complaint would be a bit too present, the bourbon BA ties it together quite nicely. it's good yo

Getting raisins, marmite, hoisin sauce, nutella, butter, and a touch of licorice that you seem to find in RIS. Not overly bitter and not too heavy on the chocolate or coffee vectors, either. Buttery, creamy mouthfeel. A little bite of alcohol, but overall well-hidden. Yum.

Flaska delad med David, tack! Utgåva XV, från 2011. Bäst före 2013-01. Knappt någon popp alls när jag öppnar korken. I glaset svart vätska med liten beige krona. Nästan stilla. I doften mycket coca cola, bourbon, fatkaraktär, mörkt socker, lakrits, menthol, tjärpastill och fudge. Något dämpad kropp, men tycker inte den tappat något av lagringen. Mycket fatkaraktär och smakerna har verkligen integrerats snyggt. Blir väldigt tjusigt. I smaken också mycket coca cola, tjärpastill, bourbon, mintlakrits, toffee, likörpralin och fortfarande en bra värme från alkoholen och bourbon. Även en nästan lite rökig ton av chark. Hållt upp fint. Riktigt trevlig!

Aroma: explosive aroma of bourbon, wood, chocolate and coffee
Taste: thick and saturated flavor of chocolate, wood, coffee and roasted malt.
Tastes like mild and drinkable bourbon enhanced by coffee and chocolate.

beskid (338) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUN 18, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2017 vs XIX. Noble aroma with caramel, moss, wet forest, alcohol. Very drinkable with coffee, chocolate, lots of barrel notes, vanilla. A little bit more body and less carbonation could make it perfect.
