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.

SONOFWODEN (56) - New York, USA - APR 21, 2017
Pours with some head, about ¾”, not as much as I had hoped. Aroma is of a dark Coke. Good taste with just that bit of bitter at the end. Yeah, it’s very good.

Noire. Belle mousse dense. Nez intense de torréfaction. Café espresso. En bouche: belle équilibre entre l'amertume et le sucré. Légère chaleur d'alcool. Café corsé. Grain torréfié. Malt chocolat. Finale sèche et amère. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MeadMeister67 (1) - Alabama, USA - APR 13, 2017 does not count
Flat with a unremarkable texture. Taste doesn’t resound - it just sort of trickles through without a memorable after taste. Initial taste sort of reminiscent of cardboard.

googleimage83 (166) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2017
Pitch black with tan head, nice retention; thick, creamy and lively. Intense roasted coffee and dark chocolate on the nose; rum-raisin, toffee, cherry. Taste is coffee forward, with toffee sweetness supporting it. Leafy and dry bitter hop finish. It’s pretty excellent.

hauxe (761) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - APR 8, 2017
Pours black from the bottle with a thick, creamy tan head that subsides, but lingers. Strong roasted notes in the aroma, but also spice, like a German Lebkuchen mix. Taste is bitter, lightly spiced, with a growing sourness on the swill. Finishes with warm chocolate, but not at all alcoholic. Body is to the heavier side of medium, and inflected with a light carbonation. I could drink this every week, happily, which for me is a very good sign. Excellent.

12-ounce bottle pours black with ruby highlights with small, creamy tan head.Aroma: molasses, smoke, nuts, dried dark fruits. Flavor: prunes, raisins, dates, figs, molasses, char, hazelnuts -- followed by a dry, hoppy finish. Mouthfeel is smooth, creamy. Always one of my go-to favorites.
