BARREL-AGED OLD RASPUTIN XIX
Every year we age a special batch of our much-loved Russian Imperial Stout in Whiskey barrels. The depth, intensity, and complexity of the flavor profile of this special release, like its predecessors, make it a worthy tribute to Old Rasputin.
Prior to 2010, Barrel-Aged Old Rasputin was released in such limited quantities that it was available only at the North Coast Brewing retail shop in Fort Bragg, California. However, we received so many requests for this beer that we began producing enough Barrel-Aged Old Rasputin to put into broader, but still limited, distribution.
Available in 500 ML bottles with a cork and wire finish.
Bourbon Barrel Aged: The most robust expression with a rich toffee nose, chocolate notes, and a silky mouthfeel.
Rye Whiskey Barrel: The most layered of the three expressions. Oaky/vanilla nose, dry and firmly bittered, but well-balanced with notes of licorice and fruit.
Wheat Whiskey Barrel: The most approachable of the three expressions, very smooth with a noticeably warming finish.
