    I can't seem to find the previous post where Azagthoth recommended Samuel Smith's Imperial Stout (edit: I think it was in a Trader Joe's thread, actually), but this is what I'm up to tonight:



    It's not like it's difficult to find (see also: BevMo). I've seen it several times and never tried it out until tonight, always go for their Organic Lager or Nut Brown Ale. I was missing out...

    This beer means ****ing business. It's the equivalent of a Palo Santo (ale) in Stout form./

    I lifted this review
    From the Goose Island Brewery, Chi, IL. The one-thousandth batch recipe from the original brew-pub at 1800 North Clybourn. Aged 100 days in bourbon barrels.

    12 ounce long-neck, 11% ABV, bottled 01/05/05. Label touts an ageable duration of 5 years.

    Deep black, syrupy color with the darkest, red-brown head I've ever seen on a beer - a deep cherry wood color that settles quickly to a good collar.

    Creamy vanilla and earthy clay notes in nose. Some chocolate and a mild oakiness.

    Vanilla and chocolate notes that are immediately over-run by spicy alcohol flavor with a definite bourbon character. Finishing in an oaky whiskey aftertaste and lingering earthiness and chocolate.

    Since the flavor on this beer seemed to beg for something sweet and chocolate, I had a small bite of Austrian milk chocolate at this point (less sweet in style than US milk chocolate). The chocolate seemed to subdue the bourbon notes of the beer some and bring out a more roasted malt flavor.

    Heavy body with a velvet smooth mouth-feel, finishing very dry.

    This is a very flavorful beer, very big - best savored on a cool or cold evening...very slowly - not for the timid.

    This beer is nuts. The first sip finished with a hint of a chocolate covered cherry. A few later the finish changed to a vanilla (big time)

    This is without a doubt the most unique beer I have ever had.

    I recently picked up some bottles of:

    Pliny the Elder
    Blind Pig
    Port Brewing Wipeout IPA
    Rogue Double Dead Guy Ale
    Reisdorf Kolsch
    Deschutes 20th Anniversary Porter
    Avery Jubilee
    Greenflash Le Freak
    Yulesmith Holiday Ale (4th of July version)


    Rediscovered this great place that gets some very hard to find brews. Osheas Brewing Supplies down in San Juan Capistrano. They also have all of the Allagash brews plus dozens of holiday belgians.

    Both of the Russian River brews are spectacular and among the best in their league. I never cared much for Wipeout IPA from Port. The Double Dead Guy was a letdown for me, and I have been trying hard to get that Deschutes 20th Anniversary XX Porter. Let us know how that one is !

    Le Freak is a wonderful beer, and the Yulesmith Summer Double IPA is one of the best out there. It'll be interesting to see how the hops are holding up at this point.

    There are a couple of others that I can't think of right now.....
    Scaldis makes an excellent Christmas beer. I think you would dig it.

    Scaldis came out with a "special" Chrsitmas beer. It is huge and has a cork. It looks almost just like this
