    I once watched a guy try to rinse his glass after enjoying a taste of Marshal Zhukov in line at last year's KBS Day. After the third rinse from a bottle of water the clear glass still had a brown tint to it.

    Havent had the DFH but out of the other three, Oskar Blues is far and away the thickest. Mephistopheles is damn good though...
     
  5. How much does a bottle of MZ run you?

  9. Founders Imperial Stout
    CCB Moat Water
    Abyss
    MZ
     
  10. I recall Avery's The Czar being quite thick....but not as thick as Mephastophales. I'm pretty sure you could run a car or small dump truck with that stuff. Still very good though.

    All of the Blackwater series stouts are real thick, as well as most of Evil Twin's stouts especially IBB. Guiness is thick too.
     
  12. Zhukov in a landslide.

    Any of CCB's imperial or sweet stouts

    Big Bad Baptist also struck me as super thick (and super awesome)

    Apple Brandy Hunuapu, Black Tuesday, BCBS Rare, Ten Fidy are the thickest beers that I've enjoyed. Dark Lord & Darkness are rich as hell but not so tasty to me.

    It is a great show, the original comment could have been taken a different way, which is something Tobias is notorious for. I mean no personal insult by it, just struck me as funny.
     
  38. Parabola has a very nice thick body to it and is one amazing beer in general!!!
     
  39. brooklyn choc. stout.....real thick...10% ...hell yeah
