Hows BA Old Rasputin XV drinking now? Should i keep aging or drink my one bottle?
Drink that shit man.
I drank one fresh last year and it was perfection, but I bought another and want to try it with a year on it. My favorite barrel stout by miles and miles. Drink it if you've never had it.
i opened a bottle about a month ago and it was excellent. drink it.
Same here, had one last month and was delish!!!
Had one for the 4th of July . It was amazing .
Meh. I say keep aging. I had one 1-2 months ago and it was still pretty hot, IMHO. Wait at least a year (I think this came out December/January?)
It fades a good bit with a year on it, and though I love it fresh I'd say 4 months is the best spot for all around flavor. Less heat but still plenty of barrel.
this beer is awesome fresh, but as stated above, pretty hot. I had last's years batch, which was about a year old at the time and it was mind blowing. I'm saving a bottle right now for a couple of years down the line, the heat should fade out a bit, and the chocolate flavors will come forward more. enjoy man
Drink one now and see how it is. If you like it and want to see how it does with age then hold onto another for a year later. No Rasputin left? BM me, there are several on the shelf here.
thanks for all the replies, im going to wait until the weather cools down a little bit more
I drank one fresh and it was probably the hottest beer I have ever had. Wish I would have waited at least a year.
