And let's round out the rack with one of this country's most celebrated beers: NORTH COAST'S OLD RASPUTIN RUSSIAN IMPERIAL STOUT. If the creepy picture of Rasputin himself on the label doesn't intimidate you, the jet-black pour might. Chocolate takes center stage in aroma while burnt coffee steps up in flavor along with bitterness and alcohol. This is a sipper, no doubt. If Old Rasputin leaves you wanting more, the brewer's anniversary beer, OLD RASPUTIN XII, takes this already bold offering to the next level by aging it in bourbon barrels.
Of course, the beauty of craft beer is that there is a style and brewer out there for almost everyone. So the next time you are mixing-a-six (or 12), be adventurous and enjoy.
