green flash double stout you could stand a fork in the glass its super thick and awesome
Marshall Zhukov's is just a touch thicker than Imperial Biscotti Break.
Did anyone mention Ten Fidy? Another good one is Bell's Expedition Stout.
Your local market has a finite number of RISs. Eat them all.
I'll second Dark Lord, and I'll seventeenth Marshall Zhukov.
BCBS is very viscous IMO, it's the thick and obviously very rich.
Another vote for the front runner Marshal Zhukov, easilly the thickest stout I've ever had.
Alesmith Speedway, Founders Imperial,BCBS,Ten Fidy are all good calls as well
I have been told Zhukov's final gravity is 1.050. For those of you that don't homebrew, 1.030 would be considered a thick stout. 1.050 would be considered a good starting gravity of a pale ale.
I haven't seen Perennial's Abraxas mentioned yet, so I'll put that one out there. I really enjoyed it, but the 750 ml bottle was almost too much for me. I thought that it was a lot thicker than FIS, Green Flash Double Stout and some others mentioned here.
Great Divide Yeti...go ahead, eat it with chop sticks.
I don't rate a hell of a lot of beers, but I can say that Yeti is the only beer that received all 5's from me. It is a truly superb beer - all the variants are excellant, but I like the regular version best.
I know it's called a "black ale" on the bottle, but Uinta Brewing's Labyrinth Black Ale is one imperial stout that fits the bill in my opinion...
Had a BORIS not too long ago and almost needed a spoon it was so thick. Have a DORIS still to drink but I'm afraid of it.
That is insane, but makes sense after tasting it. I split a bottle three ways and it felt like eating a meal.
Brooklyn Black Ops is another I had lately that was big and thick. And why does this tread sound like it belongs on a porn forum more then a beer form?
Lots of proper inclusions already mentioned. Just wanted to add Avery The Czar to that list, as per my experience last night.
See the avatar, my personal beer love affair, Marshal Zhukov!
Everyone wants Hunahpu and for good reason, but many forget Zhukov is the base beer for it and probably easier to get in trade from us Florida folks, lol.
I haven't had thicker than FIS or Tin Fidy
Big John is pretty thick.....And yes, that is what she said.
FIS, Expedition, Yeti, Night Stalker, etc., all of them?
Founders Imperial. Never seen a stout pour like that one does.
Mikkeller Black Buffalo weighing in at a mighty 19.3%abv aged in Buffalo Trace Barrels, they don't get much more outrageous than that. It is like a bourbon with a little stout in it and pretty damn thick if I remember correctly. Also Fulton Worthy Adversary was surprisingly weighty with wonderful rich notes of toffee and cocoa nibs.
Darklord, but it is disgusting
I know it's a summer release - what are the chances of any bottles of Zhukov still being on shelves this time of year (I have a potential mule in St Pete Beach.) Thanks!
Brooklyn BCS has a big footprint, bigger than Bells, CC, and Hoppin' Frog (according to seekabrew.com). But if you're on the west coast, then you don't have much chance, I'm afraid.
And I second all the FIS recs. The benefit of that beer is that it tastes better than almost all of the recommendations so far, including my own.
Hit or miss at this point. The only stores that I see them pop up at here and there are Whole Food Markets. I usually stock up anytime I see them, but I'm even getting low at the moment.
I totally agree. It is the smoothest as well ! If you want one more complex.... Old Rasputin Russian Imerial Stout.
Marshall Zhukov was the thickest stout I've ever had until I had Zhukov's Final Push
I'll third Dark Lord but unfortunately I don't have any left if anyone has any I'd trade any of the following and maybe multiples for a Dark Lord BCBS, 2010 Arcadia Barrel Aged Shipwreck Porter, Arcadia 2011 Barrel aged shipwreck, Black Note, Arcadia Barrel aged imperial stout
I should add priority given for Barrelaged and then oldest bottling date
ten fidy as mentioned above
Founders Imp Stout
New England Stout trooper was thick to me as well
Old Viscosity, Older Viscosity & Santa's Little Helper from Port. The Butcher from Societe. Speedway from Alesmith. All very, very thick. Sea Monster from BP as well. Victory at Sea is an Imperial Porter that can float a quarter.
D.O.R.I.S. is available in GA.
Alesmith Speedway Stout and Oskar Blues Ten Fidy
haven't seen it mentioned yet and it came to my mind right away: avery's uncle jacob's
