    Beamish here in the states. I wish they would import here again but I think they cut it off after Heineken bought the brewery. My favorite Irish Dry Stout.

    I think/hope you're right about Fort.

    For me, Stone's 15th Anniversary Escondidian Black IPA. Wish, wish, wish they turned that into a regular part of their lineup!

    There's a store by me that has a few four packs left. Maybe you could find the same down by you.

    Weyerbacher Raspberry Imperial Stout. One of my first big beers (and fruit beers are not typically my fave).

    Thanks for the tip. I thought I heard that it was being dropped(retired my asso_O), but when I saw it in stores I assumed they had recanted, guess not. Time to clear some space in the cellar...

    Firestone XV. A few years ago, a local pizza joint had a Firestone-Walker night with a rep, a cask of Pale 31, and XV on tap, served in pint glasses for (presumably accidentally) regular tap prices. Holy **** that was a fantastic beer, on tap until they ran out. I mean, the Pale 31 on cask was good, but that XV was the cat's pajamas.

    I always thought that Wild Devil tasted a lot like Orval (though somewhat more hoppy). If you haven't had Orval, it may be close to what you're looking for. Hope this helps.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about that one. I had it on tap and so did my wife. The server described it as "this tastes like medicine. Seriously, it tastes like aspirin". He was spot on yet I liked it. My wife however thought it tasted horrible.

    Smuttynose - Hanami Ale.. i sent an email asking if this would ever come back and they were mentioning how it's unlikely because it didn't sell. i thought it was MUCH better than founders cerise.. much more balanced and perfect for sumer/spring. just wish i could have one more 6 pack to try to decipher the grain bill/ingredients used so i can make a clone (or at least something similar).
