Old Rasputin XV Imperial Stout
Rasputin XV Russian Imperial Stout is Here!
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. However, we have received so many requests for this beer that for the 15th anniversary, NCBC produced enough Old Rasputin XIV to put into broader distribution. There’s certainly not a flood of it, but it is available in select areas.
We guarantee that the Old Rasputin XV will be worth the search. 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.
North Coast Brewing Releases Barrel-Aged Old Rasputin XV
To celebrate the tenth anniversary (X) of Old Rasputin in 2006, we brewed a special
batch of our much-loved Russian Imperial Stout, which we aged in Bourbon barrels
for a year and in 2007 released in 500 ml bottles with cork and wire finish and a
special commemorative label. Over the next two years XI and XII followed, and
now, after a two year wait, we are proud to introduce Barrel Aged Old Rasputin XV.
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 as of the 12th
anniversary (XII), we began producing enough Barrel-Aged Old
Rasputin to put into broader, but still limited, distribution.
