    This list after #3 tends to change quite a bit! SOOO many good beers out there and depending on the time of year, my rankings change. I'm on a huge stout kick right now.

    My goal is to one day have all of these big whales, but cbs and KBBS are the two most wanted that I'll probably die never having so, anybody who has had them, are they all they are hyped up to be?!

    I started drinking about two summers ago, but I've tried to sample as much as I can. In no particular order:
    - Mikkeller's Beer Geek Brunch
    - Mikkeller's Beer Geek Weasel
    - Boulevard's X Imperial Stout Coffee Ale (2015)
    - Mother's Winter Grind
    - Bell's Expedition Stout
    - 4 Hand's Chocolate Milk Stout
    - Loveland Aleworks's Raspberry Sour Ale
    - New Belgium's La Folie
    - Bell's Java Stout
    - Lakefront Brewery's Fuel Cafe

    Winter Grind is my go-to when it's in production. You can get it pretty cheap, and yet it still has wonderful flavor, aroma, head, mouth feel, etc..
  31. ELS

    ELS Pundit (957) Apr 22, 2012 Florida

    Zombie Dust
    Jai Alai
    Modus Hoperandi
    Sculpin (only when fresh on tap, otherwise not in top 100)
    Double Citra
    Maple Bacon Coffee Porter
    Harbinger Hazelnut Stout (J Wakefield)
    Funk Metal
    Peche Mortel

    Currently I'm not in a stout phase, otherwise I would list the usual suspects. I'm also a big fan of sours, but not so much that they would take more than 1 spot. IPA/PA's are king with me for the last couple of years.

    I stayed away from the hops (for the most part) because they vary so much for me...Daisy Cutter was one of the first hoppy beers I had and I have always loved it, so that's why it makes the cut lol
