WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Thick like motor oil, a fantastic beer!
a must try
excellent example of imperial stout and its available year round . I don't detect or taste the normal roasted or chocolate notes that I've found in a normal stout but it will warm you up on a winters night it does have a high ABV so don't have more then one if your planning to drive.
Brewed by Americans in tradition of English for Russians. Superb example of stout. Bitter as with burnt chocolate toffee taste. A beer to savour. Top shelf, slow drinking beer.
A really impressive imperial stout (at an affordable price!)
A beautiful beer from the west coast of the US. Notes of chocolate, coffee, and a hint of malt. Surprisingly light for a porter, yet dark in colour and deeply satisfying. Consistently one of the highest rated beers in the world, for good reason. Highly recommend anything from North Coast Brewing, especially the Acme IPA.
