TAP Beer of the Week 11: Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout

“It’s loaded with chocolate and coffee aromas, some roasty notes and bready yeast.  It’s a rich mouthful, sweet, even luscious, but nicely balanced by the hops.” Read the whole review by Tom Bedell here.

Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout Review

“The taste is something else, bitter chocolate and espresso with a sweet finish. I have to say that if you like bitter chocolate and beer—strong beer—you’ll like this. Nice creamy yet carbonated mouthfeel keeps it from being cloying. This is something you want to sip & savor.” –From a review of Old Rasputin by Emerald City Supertasters

Old Rasputin Featured in Gourmet Magazine

From “Eight Great Winter Beers” by Joshua Bernstein in Gourmet Magazine:
“This obsidian flavor bomb has a thick pour that releases aromas of chocolate-dipped raisins, yeasty bread, and espresso. Java also defines Rasputin’s rich, roasty flavor, with a balanced sweetness that masks the beer’s strapping 9 percent ABV. It all adds up to a dangerously drinkable imperial stout that’s best shared with a couple cohorts.”
