North Coast Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout

North Coast Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout sports big flavors and a warming finish

Considered by many to be the standard-bearer for the style, this Russian Imperial Stout from 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 percent 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.
