Beer Profile: Old Rasputin Imperial Stout

Old Rasputin Imperial Stout (Fort Bragg, California) – 9% ABV: Imperial stout, also known as "Russian Imperial Stout" or "Imperial Russian Stout," is a strong dark beer or stout that was originally brewed in London, England for export to the Tsar of Russia. Imperial stout has a high alcohol content to preserve it during shipment. A classic example of this kind of beer is Old Rasputin from North Coast Brewing Co. Old Rasputin pours a rich dark-brown, molasses color that resembles coffee. The beer smells of caramel and nuts and it offers up a classic stout flavor with a nice punch of alcohol at the finish.

The Amsterdam Bar is proud to offer this mesmerizing brew in bottles.
