    Finally crushed the 2011 Dark Lord I've had for a couple years and it was phenomenal.

    Rochefort 10 without a doubt at a delicious 11.3%.

    Most barrel aged stouts fall over 11%, so just choose one of the better ones at random. Once you narrow it down to the best examples (Parabola, BA Ten Fidy, BCBS, etc.), it's just a crapshoot.

    Cognac Coffee Dark Lord (15%) or Bourbon Country Brand Coffee Stout (13.4%)... tough to decide between the two.

    I had a Serenata Notturna from Crooked Stave over the weekend. Comes in at 12%, and it was phenomenal.

    According to my ratings here, my favorite is Alesmith Speedway Stout. I haven't had it in a few years, though.

    Also a big fan of FW Parabola and H24 Pugachev's Cobra.

    You're in NY, drive to Delaware (a 2-2:30 hour trip). Drink a few at the brewery ($5.75 for a 10oz glass) and crash out at the beach (Rehoboth, Dewey, etc.), it's worth it!

    I haven't had that many, but they've all been in the Outstanding or World Class categories, so choosing is nigh on impossible.

    In no particular order:

    King Henry - GI
    BCBS - GI
    Wulver - Thirsty Dog
    Raison D’Exta - DFH
    Palo Santo Marron - DFH
    Aventinus Eisbock
    Harvest Ale (2001) - J.W. Lees
    Trappistes Rochefort 10
    Cuvée Van De Keizer Blauw - Brouwerij Het Anker
    Hand & Seal - Brooklyn
    Old Stock - North Coast

    Very tough as I enjoy large beers but I would have to say BCS and it's variants. Consistently great every time.

    Stone w00tstout = tastes like nutty soy sauce marmalade
    Tweak = tastes like a red eye
    World Wide Stout = tastes like devil's food french toast
