This Stout, although USA is not too bad. It needs a less coppery finish. Actually it is pretty good and I can recommend this to novice and intermediate stout drinker.

Produced in the tradition of 18th Century English brewers who supplied the court of Russia's Catherine the Great, Old Rasputin seems to develop a cult following wherever it goes. It's a rich, intense brew with big complex flavors and a warming finish. The Old Rasputin brand image is a drawing of Rasputin with a phrase in Russian encircling it—A sincere friend is not born instantly. How hard it is to make and keep a good friend. –"Jericho," Joni MitchellView all products by North Coast Brewing CompanyCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

My favorite beer. Rich taste and a beer thick enough you can chew it. This is not over hopped trash hipster beer; this is worth buying.
