stone imperial russian stout - very fine, enjoyed immensely
and now tonight for the ku game:
left hand brewery 2009 oak aged imperial stout
on recommendation of my beer guy (also have a Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout as backup, i'm reading some very mixed reviews for the left hand, oh well)...he also mentioned a Mikkeller Chipotle Porter, anyone tried it?
hard to imagine liking it for more than a few drinks
Try the Shakespeare apart from some of the other bigger beers before writing it off. A fantastic example of the stout style, IMHO. The Sam Smith is also a very tasty stout...
