Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout (Northcoast Brewing)

Old Rasputin Imperial Stout

I’ll answer your likely first question. Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout by North Coast Brewing Company is sadly not made by the blood of the legendary Russian mystic. Or least the label doesn’t betray what part of Rasputin is involved if any. This was a guy poisoned and shot multiple times by the Czars and company. That said, after a taste it’s clearly a brew worthy of him. The flavor is intense with chocolate and coffee notes. It has a decent head. The bitterness is highly balanced. The 9% ABV packs a punch but it doesn’t override the flavor. This is one of the best stouts ever, if not, the best. I rarely salivate thinking of beer but I’m having that reaction now. This is a case where practically everyone agrees that this is a fantastic beer. Check out a few reviews.
