Val, I love imperials. We've got a couple of good ones here in AK, you should be able to get in Pac. NW, http://www.alaskanbeer.com/our-brew/limited-edition/pilot-series/baltic-porter.html which is one Ov my faves. And http://www.alaskanbeer.com/our-brew/limited-edition/pilot-series/alaskan-imperial-ipa.html which I need to get and try. Finally, if you can find it, their perseverance is supposed to be something special, http://www.alaskanbeer.com/our-brew/limited-edition/pilot-series/perseverance-ale.html Meanwhile, I'm sitting here with old faithfull, a reposada scratch margarita (on ice), and an ice pack.
Thank you ! it looks as if I can get the Pilot Series at Whole Foods or our local specialty beer store . I will look for it this weekend
I love winter beer - Summer not so much
I am also finding I prefer a beers taste to smack me in the face rather than be very complex and subtle. New Glarus Enigma is not my style. But O'so Night Train ... Great beer.
Plus I like my beer a bit stromger - 7+% is a nice amount of alcohol.
Each day at work as I drink a bunch of coffee - All I can think about is how nice a stout would be right now.
Retired 1/1/13 ... Tired of being broken and fat ... New goal 12/29/15 - To be able to enjoy running 4-5 hours through the woods again in 2016.

Just finished a Pliny the Elder with a Italian sandwich after a 25 mile mtn bike ride. Pliny was bottled just 6 days ago and it was so fresh it was like drinking it right out of the tap. Tonight it will be a Stone Double Bastard Ale with friends. Freinds don't let friends drink wimpy beer.
Pliny the Elder is a fantastic beer.
I found a new one from the only micrrobrewery here in Mississippi.
Lazy Magnolia Timber Beast Rye IPA....9% ABV...
