Missed That Part!! Old Raspy or Close Encounter.
Year round AND easy to get narrows it down a whole hell of a lot. Fitting that criteria though I actually think Anderson Valley Wild Turkey is pretty good.
@gillagorilla is right though. The issue might be that majority of Beer Drinkers around our parts is mostly Light Lager Imbibers.
Bourban barrel black maple is the best beer I've ever had if you've had that. Jackie O's is my all time favorite brewery as far as the quality of everything they make.
I have to go with Péché Mortel since it's technically available year-round, and oh so good.
Going all local - NE Ohio here
Great Lakes Blackout
Thirsty Dog Siberian Night
Hoppin Frog BORIS
Bomb!, KDS, Abyss, Darkness
It seems I can find it just about any time of year - so much that I've begun to consider it a year-round beer.
Big Bad Baptist
What's the difference?
I always thought American stouts were higher in bitterness and overall hop level, but OP did state American Double/Imperial Stout which is recognized as a distinct style from RIS on this site. I also might be wrong, but I also see a lot more stouts with adjuncts categorized as American than RIS.
For those in NE, Clown Shoes' Breakfast Exorcism.
Not sure if it's year-round, but it seems Clown Shoes has been making a decent amount of it since it was first released.
I've found BOMB! in the city recently. Worth every penny.
Even more Jesus
Big black voodoo daddy
I know the last 2 are not year round but they are easy to get when they r out
You're doing all right on price. I've never found BOMB! for less than $10/bottle, and I've never found Vanilla Noir, period. (I could order it online, but I refuse pay $23+shipping for a two-pack that bundles Vanilla Noir with some random farmhouse ale or whatever that I don't care about). If I found them for $8 and $12, respectively, then... well, I'd probably blow a big hole in my wallet that day.
And for anybody else living in Alabama: Good People Brewing's Coffee Oatmeal Stout is cheap, available year-round, and darn good (http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/17282/45303/). Also, Blue Pants Brewery's Imperial Stout and Double Stuff Pinstripe Stout are both quite tasty and on shelves right now. Not sure if they will be available year-round, though.
Stone RIS, normal Yeti, Narwhal, Speedway, and Czar.
I'll take any of those over BCBS, too.
You can put BCBS on the table and it would still be Old Rasputin.
Founders Imperial Stout with Bells 30th coming in close behind.
If we're talking flavored imp stouts, then I'll take Prairie Bomb! over the previously mentioned all day!
Avery's Uncle Jacob's Stout isn't year-round, but it's expensive and unknown enough that I've had luck finding it in bottle shops even 10 months after its release. It's smoother, boozier, and more complex than BCBS. You can tell by my picture I'm a fan.
Year round would have to be Anderson Valley Wild Turkey Bourbon Barrel Stout, North Coast Old Rasputin, AleSmith Speedway Stout.
Dieu du Ciel's Peche Mortel. http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/1141/10325/
Hill Farmstead Genealogy. And I also agree on Peche Mortel and Old Rasputin.
WE are NOT enjoying BCBS. Can't find any around here
Unless I'm mistaken, this was a one-time only release.
I do not have any year round available but I am really liking Thimble Island's Mutually Assured Destruction RIS and the BA version even better.
I thought so as well, but after they were gone from the shelves the first time, I saw a second wave in MA. Worth keeping an eye out for in any case.
Ten Fidy (drinking one now) and Speedway but Speedway isn't available around here.
Anyone that finds some, please let me know if you'd like to trade.
I've never said "I am in the mood for an American/Double Stout", just "I want a nice imperial stout". Flavoured/unflavoured might be a better distinction.
Speedway Stout. Easily.
SO many...but to echo what a some of the others have said..
Plead the 5th
Undead Party Crasher
Where are you? It's plentiful in Buffalo
Barrel aged? KBS has always blown BCBS out of the water, imo.
Regular stout? Founders Imperial Stout, Voodoo Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Sierra Nevada Narwhal... Hard to think of just regular imperial stouts that jump out at me. Most of them are coffee/spice infused.
