llcoolray1993 North Coast Brewing Company Old Stock Ale 2013 Cellar Reserve
Style | ABV
Old Ale | 14.10% ABV

Appearance: Dark copper, nothing coming thru when held up to the light, and what head was generated by a fairly aggressive pour dissipated almost immediately.

Nose: I had my schnoz in this beaut for a good ten minutes before it even crossed my mind to take a sip! Bourbon, oak and vanilla greet you initially; then comes golden raisins, figs, caramel, toffee and candied sugar.
Mouthfeel: Thick and slick. Lightly carbonated.

Taste: Bourbon, oak bitterness, vanilla, golden raisins, figs, dark bready malt, coconut, caramel, toffee and candied sugar.

I had my reservations about buying this when I saw the hefty price tag. After taking the first sip, all my doubts were whipped away. I have never had a finer BBA beer!
My Score
100/100
World-Class

915hustler #craftsman #craftbeerporn #craftbeer #northcoastbrewingco #oldrasputin #oldrasputinrussianimperialstout #elpaso #b13 stout has a lot of head. Stays like that for a while. Very dark color even if I put it up to the sun I cannot see that through it. Goes down very smooth. Full body very yummy. 6d

shady_lady79 My night along with watching "The Punisher" Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout by North Coast Brewery is pretty darn tasty. A dark and rich stout without alot of that bitterness at the end. On the other hand, Boulevard's Tell Tale Heart which is A Slightly Sour Ale has a very fruity and bubbly taste, definitely on the sour side. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far Cheers everyone
I owe @mad0599 and @all_american_beard an #sds

bowie.and.arrow This is pretty interesting stuff here. Belgian style yeast. Lots of raisin and caramel characteristics. I'm getting a very small amount of the agave's earthy sweetness. Some welcomed bourbon oak hints to complement the fruitiness. I like. Cheers everyone!
