Produced in the tradition of 18th Century English brewers who supplied the court of Russias Catherine the Great, Old Rasputin seems to develop a cult following wherever it goes. Its 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 itA sincere friend is not born instantly.

Black colour with thick head. Strong coffee aroma with roasted malts and some ash. Taste is dry, with heavy roastiness and long bitterness. Medium body but does not feel watery. A well brewed, classic imperial stout, but definitely overrated.

Bottle. Overwhelmingly strong sweet coffee aroma and flavor. Kinda boozy at 9 % ABV. You gotta sip this one slowly. Lingering bitter finish. A bit disappointing, with all the accolades and high "expert" ratings. All I taste is sweet, boozy coffee. Not a bad thing, of course, but as an Imperial Stout, this brew is simply not very complex.

Purchased the last four pack of 12 oz. bottles at the closest HEB. Hope they bring more later. Tilted a bottle into a tall beer glass giving a jet black fill with a mighty fine chocolate milk-colored head. Laces nicely. The aroma is burnt toffee with chocolate. Sort of like a Heath bar, do they make those anymore? I taste dark roast coffee with a dollop of malt. And I get a bit of plum sweetness in there too, interesting. It finishes with a moderate bitterness. The alcohol stays in the background. A really pleasant IS, upper echelon.

spechtacular (112) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 11, 2016
Barwa czarna, piana wysoka, beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa. Aromat intensywnie palony, mocna kawa. W smaku rwnież wyraziste nuty kawy i kakao. Zdecydowana goryczka i kwaśność. Bardzo wytrawne. Alkohol niewyczuwalny. Gęste i treściwe.

BeerInHeaven (394) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 9, 2016
Pours black with a thick slowly forming tan head. The aroma is roasted malt but also has a definite floral aspect suggesting hop presence. Smooth creamy palate. The taste is malty with some light chocolate notes. Some bitter fades in and lingers. The high alcohol content is well muted but warms on the finish. This is a very good brew for a cold Wisconsin night!

Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. RIS amerykanski troche moim zdaniem zbyt zawyzona ocena, ale nie zmienia to faktu ze to piwo jest bardzo dobre. Wyglada super, ciemne jak kakao, geste i nieprzezroczyste, kremowa lekko brazowa spora piana jest naprawde bardzo trwala. Bukiet zapachowy od porzadnego kakao poprzez trufle i pierniki. W smaku pierniki, troche slodkosci uderzajacej na samym poczatku by potem smak przeradza sie w lekko wytrawny i kawowo-gorzki. Kakao i espresso tu rzadza. Ale minusem tego piwa jest to ze te smaki trwaja krotko, nie pozostaja na dluzej po przelknieciu, nawet zapach gdzies szybko ulatuje.

OnTheTrail (417) - Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2016
Pours black. Big Brown head. Aroma is rich cocoa espresso. Rich cocoa chocolate coffee fading to smoky dark fruit and then to a bitter coffee finish that lingers. Medium to heavy somewhat carbonated mouthfeel.

I have been drinking this beer for years, but have just now sat down to assess it once again. A tan head that quickly dissapates to lacey. Pitch black hue. Mouthfeel is smooth with a light carbonation followed by a front pallet malt bitterness that ends with a bit of licorice bitterness/bite. Finish continues with a roasted malt and slight espresso taste.

I cant believe that I havent rated this yet. Pours black with a full, long lasting, dark tan head. The aroma contains coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, mild vanilla, and smoke. The taste is bitter and dry. There is an excellent balance of coffee, chocolate, and smokiness. These are complimented with roasted malts, caramel, and hints of raisin and vanilla. A lingering aftertaste is a roasted chocolate flavor. Its full bodied, with a thick, creamy texture, and has softer carbonation. From a style that I really enjoy, this is one of my favorites.
