They even have this at the Lazy Dog Cafe in Del Amo mall in Torrance ON TAP. On Tap always tastes better. They also have Arrogant Bastard on tap, but the original is disappointing after you've had the Double Oaked, which they don't have.

This is one of my favs, about $10 a four pack.
Trois Pistoles has a dark brown color topped with a rich foam mousse.
Its slightly sweet taste is enhanced by accents of roasted malt, cocoa, ripe fruit and dark spices with a smooth finish like an old port.
Since May 1997 ...MORE
Strong dark ale

Trois Pistoles is absolutely fantastic, as is everything from Unibroue. Haven't had a bad or mediocre one from them yet.

Just had STone IPA on tap last night at Lazy Dog in HB and loved it.. Wished they still had Lagunitas IPA on tap as I like it even more than Stone.

Lagunitas' Hairy Eyeball is back. Time for you Nancies to man up. The Hairy Eyeball, at 8.8% alc, is a whole different animal than what your used to from your every day ale. If you like pounding brews then skip this one. If you like a nice sweet brew with crackers and cheese then leave the Eyeball alone. BUT if you like strong ale and can hack it then knuckle up and grab a sixer while it's at your local BevMo. I can't say you won't be sorry. Actually, I'm pretty sure you will be.

Agree on the Stone beers. Stone is the best beer going.

If anyone is ever in British Columbia, you've gotta try Whistler Premium Export Lager. Out-****ing-standing. By far my favorite beer.

Lagunitas Hairy Eyeball is a fav of mine. It should be all over the place now in the specialty beer stores.

Guess I'm on a tasting spree. Last night it was Stout night - Drake's Imperial Stout was up first. Has anyone else tried this? The flavor was good but the complete lack of carbonation ruined it for me. Did I just get a bad bottle or is that the way it is supposed to be?
The other Stout I had was the Rogue Chocolate Stout. Wow, if you like chocolate, this is the one for you! After each drink, my teeth felt like they were coated in chocolate milk. My wife really enjoyed this one.
I was hoping to move on to a few more but Stouts are damn filling and didn't go with the dinner at hand.
