This is a class beer.

Every so often I come across a beer that I just gulp down with no regard to its strength, because it's just so damn good. This is one of those beers. As I drink this beer I sit in my chair, shaking my head and exhaling audibly after each sip, at the excellence that is this beer.

You can have your IPAs, your best bitters and all the rest of 'em, because for my money you just can't beat a quality Imperial Stout like this one.

If Victor Kiam had still been around today and drunk this beer he would have forgotten all about his Remmington Microscreen and bought this company instead. Believe you me.

Wow, very nice beer. Malty and heavy with an alcohol after taste.
Good buzz while sipping slowly.
great before meal beer.
I am beginning to really appreciate this more unique and complex tasting beers.
I need to invest in a few nice glasses or goblets for these nights I try each one out to get a better smell and appearance review.
