Old Rasputin Selected for "Top 10 Sipping Beers"

North Coast Brewing Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout, 12 oz bottleGayot.com, “the guide to the good life,” just chose Old Rasputin for their guide to the Top 10 Sipping Beers. Here’s what they said:

“Considered by many to be the standard-bearer for the style, this Russian Imperial Stout from the North Coast Brewing Company is produced in the tradition of 18th-century English brewers who supplied the court of Russia’s Catherine the Great. Its label includes a depiction of the ‘Mad Monk,’ and like the Russian mystic it’s named for, Old Rasputin appears dark and sinister. This rich, intense brew sports big flavors and a warming finish thanks to the hefty 9 per cent ABV. Tastes of espresso, mocha, and dark chocolate are matched with a finish of fruity hoppy bitterness, making this a well-rounded and complex beer. Pairing this brew with anything chocolate is a sure thing, but fruity desserts will also work well to balance the deep roasted flavors.”
