Old . . . Old Rasputin

So, I was cleaning out the garage this weekend and in one of the boxes I found a bottle of “Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout” tucked away in a box that was also holding an emergency supply of water jugs (my wife is paranoid about hurricane season).

If I had to guess, I would say this bottle is 1 1/2 years old. Now, there is a popular misconception that heat will ruin a beer. Well really, this just is not true. It is generally light that will destroy beer. Ever wondered why most bottles are dark colored? Beer advocate has an OK write up about this here.

So, back to my hidden bottle of Old Rasputin. I’m drinking it now. And after 547 days or so of being in the garage in 80-90 + degree heat, it is still as good as any stout gets.
