Partial Transcript:
"On Tap -- Old Rasputin

Hi, I'm James Knott and today we are talking about Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout from the North Coast Brewing Company. North Coast started as a local brewpub in Fort Bragg, California in 1988. They now have beers in 47 states, Europe and the Pacific Rim.

Old Rasputin is an Imperial Stout with 9 percent ABV and 75 IBUs. The company describes it as a "rich, intense brew with big complex flavors and a warming finish."

Historically, Stouts and Porters are closely related. A Stout Porter was once considered to be a high ABV dark porter and eventually the name was shortened to just stout.

Stouts are made with roasted malt. Several types of Stout include Irish Dry Stouts like Guinness, Imperial Stouts like Old Rasputin, Milk Stouts which contain lactose sugar, Oatmeal stouts where oats add to the smooth, creamy mouthfeel, and Coffee Stouts which use dark roasted malt and sometimes ground coffee to add a coffee flavor to the beer.
