I can definitely get down with Old Rasputin and GLBC's Blackout Stout.
The stout at the top of my want list right now is Fundamental Observation.
That's the point I like a bit harsh , you don't. No one is wrong just different. Enjoy your beer next June.
I'm really looking forward to the bs release this year (not kbs, though). I'd also love to get my hands on another prairie bomb! I received two by trade last summer and definitely was blown away. Also, espresso yeti.
I have a black butte xxvii sitting in my fridge right now..the label says 'porter', but if I remember anything from last year's, it should have all the characteristics of a good barrel-aged imperial stout.
Im gonna be "that" guy but i like lower abv stouts more. The RIS ive gad are sticky and it puts me off. Used to be a HUGE milk stout guy but now i crave bitterness. Oatmeal stouts like Couch Surfer work for me with a bitter black coffee thing going on .
Agreed. It is my #1 beer. Blows me away every time.
Parabola and Bourbon County reign as examples of the style
others that I may have enjoyed more:
Fremont Bourbon Dark Star
BA Ten Fidy
Cellarmaker Bourbon Vastness of Space
Fucking awful thread title. Everybody hype now. And we know it's a thread, so...
I frequently settled for Founders Imperial stout, not only inexpensive but also great. I also treat myself with Oskar Blues Ten Fidy...motor oil thick but yet silky and so tasty, so worth the extra price
My go-to was will always be 1050 plead the fifth and founders Imperial Stout due to the relative ease to find. My favorite in general though include bourbon barrel aged Mayan mocha stout Imperial, Chocolate Rain, hipster brunch stout, but those are kind of hard to find and very limited
I love me some Samuel Smith stouts.
I love a good stout on occasion, but I've noticed that moments comes less often for me these days. Great style with a lot of amazing beers but I think I for the most part, burnt myself out on them (especially the barrel aged ones) and honestly my wallet, and I'm sure my liver are thanking me
But this thread might have put me in the mood and as it just so happens I've got an Expedition Stout and a Speedway waiting for me in the fridge.....now, which one? That's the million dollar question. Cheers!
What hype? Imperial Stouts are the greatest thing to happen since we harnessed fire. I don't see any hype.
To name a few.
Yes, it holds its own against any beer in the category, IMO
A couple?! Ha that would be the end of my day. Lucky that I have one in the cellar
Theres more grain used, more hops used, they need to acquire the barrels and the space its taking up all need to be accounted for in the price
Each of the one's you've identified as not having you will like a lot. There's no risk in buying a few extra as each of those beers also age nicely. Drink some now, then 6 months from now, then a year from now and compare. Does Abyss, KBS, or BCBS get distributed out there? If so, stand in line and do what it takes to get some of those as well. Good luck whaling.
Just drank a 2011 Founders Imperial Stout. Prime with 4 years on it.
There are many great stouts out there, obviously. My favorites?
Non-barrel aged; Founder's.
Barrel aged; Ozark BDCS, no contest.
Modern Times Monster Park is one of my personal favorites
For sure, love summer imperial stouts too, they warm up faster. It's always good when people can enjoy them as they like them... cheers!
All this cost less than (or about equal too) the special order cork and cage, uniquely labelled bottle they use
