North Coast Brewing’s 14th Anniversary release — Barrel Aged Old Rasputin, aka XIV has started hitting shelves. The west coast of course has been seeing the first bottles.
This anniversary beer is the brewery’s medal winning Old Rasputin, aged in bourbon barrels.
Per North Coast:
Rasputin XIV 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 12th 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. Check the distributor in your area to find where to get it.
Style: Imperial Stout (barrel aged)
Taste Expectations: Everything you have come to love about Old Raspy (Chocolate, coffee, roasty malts) creamy, full bodied flavor. Now with oaky vanilla.
Availability: 16.9 oz bottles. Corked/Caged. One time anniversary release.
