    I recently had Palo Santo Marron for the first time and loved it. One thing that really struck me was how long it took me to drink that single pour. It was so big and flavorful that I was practically forced to drink slowly and savor every small mouthfull.

    What is your favorite beer to pour up, sit back, and enjoy, one small sip at a time?

    Prost!

    Most of Avery's big beers play that role for me. Black Eye, Uncle Jacob's, Tweak, 5 Monks, etc.

    I suppose Brooklyn Breweries "Black Chocolate Stout" perhaps with a nice slice of Chocolate Cake topped with Coffee Ice Cream-so beyond Amazing,and @ 10% A.B.V. it is a gr8 closer for the night-cheers!

    A big Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout!

    I don't think it gets too much better than a BCBS! I love watching that beer change as it warms!

    I agree with this. And the more bourbon-forward the beer is, the better I enjoy it. BCBS is also my first choice, but it's hard to get here in Michigan, so my next choice is Arcadia's Shipwreck Porter. It's fairly easy to find year-round if you don't mind the price.

    For me it is Old Rasputin by North Coast Brewing Company. I live on the east coast so this beer is great after a long day of shoveling or skiing...just sit back and sip the goodness!

    Enjoy the Abyss. Feels it gets better as it warms up. Would drink an entire growler sitting by the outside fire smoking a cigar. It would take a couple hours but it was always enjoyable.

    Prairie BOMB! or it's variants. Such a big, strong ale with powerful coffee and tannins - one 12oz can last an hour or more for sure.

    You mean you didn't take the Chocolate Rain to the face in an hour like I did last year?!

    I thought I was going to die.

    Weird enough, it took me an hour to drink a Habanero Sculpin. And it got better as it warmed.

    As for stouts and such, I also like to sip a bourbon barrel aged stout at a cold temperature and let it warm to see how it evolves over about 30 minutes or so.

    I felt like I did. I was supposed to split the 750 and then my brother decided that he didn't want any after I opened the bottle...And I was already 3-4 beers deep at that time.

    That next morning was..interesting to say the least.

    I like spice too, but I really wanted to see how the habanero peppers evolved over time.

    Brooklyn Black Chocolate or Zywiec Porter for me. The former, just a great thick RIS to sip on for an hour or so and see how the taste evolves as it warms. The latter, its a pint of almost 10% beer, delicious but need to take your time :stuck_out_tongue:
