De Molen has changed their Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout name to:
Disputin Russian Imperial Stout due to a dispute with North Coast. Follow what STLHops readers are saying.
De Molen apparently was forced to change their name and packaging....
This is written on the front label of De Molen Disputin
"This stout used to be called Rasputin, but the people who make a product with a similar name in California thought you were too dumb to tell the two products apart, and threatened to sue us for trademark infringement. Think about that when you're out looking for a way to spend your hard-earned beer money."
-- De Molen's new label
Here is the old label (we still have some left, of the now collectible bottle) .
