North Coast Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout Clone Extract hybrid kit.
Old Rasputin is produced in the tradition of 18th century English brewers who supplied the court of Russia’s Catherine the Great. The Old Rasputin brand image is a drawing of Rasputin, a Russian peasant, mystical faith healer and a trusted friend to the family of Nicholas II, the last Tsar of Russia, with a phrase in Russian encircling it – A sincere friend is not born instantly.
Old Rasputin clone, found in July/August 2007 Zymurgy and created by Amahl Turczyn, is a huge, complex beer, heavy on flavor and aroma, with lots of warming alcohol. It will age well, but with lots of late hops, you may want to let it condition for only a month or so.
