    Without a doubt....Urthel Hibernus Quentum. Had it only once but it was memorable and glorious. See some of the other Urthel stuff around but it's just not the same. Sniffle.......

    To the OP, if you're referring to the Sam Adams Imperial Hallertau Pils I'm totally on board with you! Not a big SA fan but WOW, that beer rocked it!! I had the opportunity to meet Greg Koch and asked him point blank about this beer and he just laughed, commented on the ridiculous amount of hops this beer required, and left it at that. 'Nuff said, question answered. :(

    Here's a good overview on the legality of "ice beers" and eisbocks in the US - Ice bock: Frozen out in the U.S.A.
    US brewers have done them, but they tend to be quietly released and typically kept in-state to avoid tweaking the TTB's interest.

    On the east coast, Ramstein Winter Wheat Eisbock is rather openly sold when available. Last winter was too mild to make it, however.

    A Italian holding company bought the brand (from the owner of the former US THA importer, Phoenix) but they have yet to find a brewer in the UK willing to brew it for them - at least that's the most recent info I've seen.

    See thread in the "Beer News" forum - Thomas Hardy Ale.
