Overview No doubt it’s the water that makes Mendocino County home to a host of fine breweries, but we can’t help but wonder if there’s something else to it.

Flavors and aromas Our tasters raved about this beer, particularly the nose, with its warm sweet balance of roasty and caramel elements. The complex interplay of aromas is matched by the palate, which is velvety and smooth. The high alcohol content is surprisingly well hidden, but make no mistake: Old Rasputin packs a wallop.
