Outside of a pint of Guinness in Ireland this is my favorite beer. Do not get me wrong, it is not at all like Guinness. The stupid thing is that it is not even as good as it used to be. An imperial stout has three characteristics: strong, a bit sweet, a burnt taste. I almost never like a sweet beer and when our local BJ's opened I tasted it with no expectations of liking it. I wish I was good at describing tastes, all I know is that this classic burnt taste and a hint of sweetness really worked for me. Unfortunately they messed with the recipe and hopped it up. My feeling is that the burnt taste of a stout and hops do not mix well. Yet this is still such a damn good beer I go there just because that is the only way I can get it.
