North Coast Brewing Company, Fort Bragg, CA
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.
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%
