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.

Thank goodness! We’ve had a hard streak of 5 bad beers in a row. Finally found the pot at the end of the rainbow. Extremely tasty with a nice aftertaste to boot! Definitely has become one of our top go to beers.

DATE: December 15, 2017... OCCASION: relaxing after the annual Frost ugly holiday sweater party... GLASSWARE: Corsendonk stemmed tulip... builds a three-finger brown slushy head that forms a mesa at its center... the pile of brown head sits atop the crypt-like blackness... thick cocoa intensity early, with a soft lactic enticement... roasted malts mesh with oats, coffee bean, and earthy vegetable... first sip is potent, thick, warming, lasting, resounding with a molasses-like consistency... slightly boozy, but not alcoholic.... strong, dry, and commanding... sweet, almost puckering at 9%, textured enough to leave a tobacco-like herbal finish... after passing this by in stores for years, I am happy to have made its intimate acquaintance... the smears of lacing articulate a quality product, with heavy clouds around the glass... huge payoff, and one that drinks like a scotch...

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2017 Pours a pitch black coloration with a medium creamy head. Smells of roasted coffee, caramel and a hint of dark fruits. Taste follows the nose with a rich roasted coffee taste and notes of sweet caramel malts, dark fruits and chocolate, with a nice bitter finish. Mouthfeel is nice, but could honestly be better, which is my main complain here. Does not top Narwhal for me, which has a better mouthfeel and is more chocolate-forward, with a milder bitterness.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2017 Notes of vanilla and faint chocolate on the nose. Smooth and medium body with a roasty, but not overpowering finish. Incredibly smooth for the style. Maybe very slight diacetyl notes, but not unpleasant considering the style. Surprisingly little alcohol taste given the ABV. Pitch black with a nice brownish head.

Uzupełnienie profilu notatki.
Piana drobne, średnie oczka opada , zdobi szkło. Kolor ciemny z rubinowymi przebłyskami. Aromat wyborny, słodki likierowy, ciemne słody, kawa, czekolada, suszone owoce rodzynki śliwka. Smak palonośc wpadająca w kwaskowe nuty, suszone owoce, kawa, lekki przyjemny popiół, kakao, czekolada. Struktura gładka, goryczka wyraźna pasująca, alkohol minimalnie wyczuwalny w likierowej pralinowo-słodkiej postaci, nagazowanie ciut za wysokie odczuwalne. Ciekawi mnie jaki jest zasyp tego piwa bo w harakterze jest to taki mocniejszy, bogatszy porter, do genialnego RISa brakuje mu trochę ciała, wersje leżakowane w beczkach pewnie są genialne.

Pours a deep black with a rich tan head. Aroma is burnt toast, dark chocolate, and a bit of booze. Taste starts sweet dark chocolate and brown sugar flavors, then the hops kick in for a nice, long dry finish. Sold mouth feel throughout. This one is right up my alley. Very good.

colui72 (1122) - HONG KONG - NOV 22, 2017
Pours pitch black with a large beige-brownish head and sticky lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and vanilla. Taste is lots of roasted dark malts, with notes of chocolate and coffee, medium to high bitterness, nice lingering taste of malts, booze, dark fruits. Full body, sticky, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Pretty good but not as Ratebeer says.

Pour is a still deep dark brown. Nice foamy head. Smells of leather, smoke, black licorice, and coffee. Taste is similar, layered and complex. Crisp and light but dark and heavy. Nice
