    Please give the thickest Imperial Stout suggestions you have and if any are available year round or at least easy to obtain that would be even better.

    Ten fidy is really dark and thick and available all the time. I think dark lord is very thick and dark as well. I really enjoy it as well but unfortunately only available once a year.

  12. DORIS was the biggest I've ever had the pleasure of putting in my mouth. Ten Fidy is close. Best mix of both big mouth feel and taste has been FIS.

  17. Thread title immediately made me think of Ten FIDY and Expedition Stout. Bourbon County should probably make the list, too.

  19. MZ is the thickest richest I've had I would say. Although it was way too sweet for me.

  21. Idk where you're from but Wisconsin gets Hoppin Frog. Their BA Boris is phenomenal as well as the Hop Dam Triple IPA. Talk about tremendous mouthfeels though. All their beers are a little pricy unfortunately.

    Agree with the Zhukov recommendations for sure. Westbrook's Cap'n Skoons is up there with MZ in terms of body, IMO. Also, any of the super high ABV stouts like World Wide Stout or BCBS are gonna be thick as hell, too.

    Dark Lord, other than those already stated like Ten Fidy, there is a Sonoran Imperial stout with a shiney label, can't remember the name, pretty think and good.

    Goose Island Nightstalker. She's so thick, if she was on craigslist she would describe herself as BBW.

    I refer to Founders Imperial Stout as motor oil. I think the high IBU/bitterness/ABV contributes to the very heavy mouthfeel.
     
  30. I'll "ditto" the Ten Fidy recommendations.

    elgiacomo Savant (460) Georgia Jun 28, 2007

    Marshal Zhukov was way up there on the thickness factor. For something somewhat more easily obtainable, Bell's Expedition Stout is thick and delicious, especially with some age on it.
     
  32. I agree with Marshall Zhukov. I just wish it was more hoppy and bitter.
     
  33. Old Rasputin, Yeti, Boulevard, Sea Monster and well its a coffee stout but can't live without Speedway!

    Marshall Z is most likely the thickest richest I've had!

    Even More Jesus is a rarely mentioned but extremely rich thick brew!
