With its classic Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout as the base beer, North Coast added this beer to two different barrels to create two unique barrel-aged beers. The result is Barrel-Aged Old Rasputin XXII, one in bourbon and one in rye, creating two distinct flavor profiles. With an ABV of 11.3%, Barrel-Aged Old Rasputin XXII is dark and complex with a rich flavor that fans and critics alike will enjoy.
North Coast has also released its Old Stock Cellar Reserve 2018. With an ABV of 13.5%, Old Stock Cellar Reserve 2018 is aged in whiskey barrels. Known for its complex and unique flavor, this Old Stock edition is world-renowned.
“Not only are we releasing our annual Barrel-Aged Old Rasputin and Old Stock Cellar Reserve editions this winter, we are also thrilled to be offering two unique versions of Barrel-Aged Old Rasputin XXII for fans to enjoy,” said North Coast Brewing Company Brewmaster, Patrick Broderick, in a statement. “These releases are highly sought after, and we’re excited loyal fans will be able to enjoy our seasonal reserve offerings this winter.”
North Coast Brewing’s Barrel-Aged Old Rasputin XXII and Old Stock Cellar Reserve Ale 2018 will be available while supplies last. Please use North Coast Brewing’s beer locator to find where these limited release beers are being sold.
