We aged special batches of our much-loved Russian Imperial Stout in Bourbon and Rye Whiskey barrels for the XXI release. 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.
Barrel-Aged Old Rasputin uses Roman and Mayan numerals to indicate the release number.
