For the past few years, Barrel-Aged Old Rasputin has been released in such limited quantities that it has been available only at the brewery retail shop in Fort Bragg, California. However, we have received so many requests for this beer that for the 12th anniversary, North Coast Brewing produced enough Old Rasputin to put into broader distribution.
There’s certainly not a flood of it, but it is available in select areas. It is amazing stuff. Aging in oak whiskey barrels adds a level of complexity that amplifies the espresso/chocolate notes in the flavor profile and takes this unique beer to new heights.
Type bier: Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout
Verpakking: 50 cl fles
Alcoholpercentage: 11,3 %
