North Coast Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout

North Coast Brewing Company, Fort Bragg, CA

DSCF2755

Brewed in the tradition of the 18th century English brewers who supplied the Russian court of Catherine the Great, Old Rasputin develops a cult following wherever it goes.  It’s a rich, intense brew with big, complex flavors and a warming finish.

9% ABV

Dark brown/black in color with a nose of chocolate with a hint of coffee.  Not as sweet as many other stouts we have tried.  Has a good bit of bitterness.  More coffee than chocolate on the palate.  A big beer that at 9% this should be your dessert beer when you are about to go to bed.

Would we have it again?  Yup

Would we get a 4-pack?  Not at 9%
