    It didn't blow me away by any means, but it's well made and above average.

    I'm having some sips of Ivan The Terrible from my Growler. If you've read my recent posts, it's no surprise, eh?

    Absolutely delicious and the brewery rep said the draught version of 2012 is ~10% abv vs 12.2 for the bottles. Having had both, yeah, the draught doesn't have nearly the heat that the bottle had.

    Edit: A better description would be...it's the Maltiest Imperial Stout I have tasted.

    Well played, sir! (I think that is the appropriate response) If it isn't, I mean that's wicked pissah (going full Boston on you there). Disclaimer: I in no way intend to be insensitive to those afflicted with the syndrome which is, of course, ultimately attributable to AB/InBev....

    Over the next few days or so, I plan to hit the four "main" St. Bernardus brews. The Pater 6, the Prior 8, the Tripel, and lastly (of course), the Abt 12. First up..... Pater 6.
