About 10 years ago, I took a tour of the Sam Adams brewery in Boston. They gave us many samples over the course of the tour. But at the end, they asked if we would like to sample .......no joke .......80 proof beer!!! Some declined ..... but not me!! It was black like Guiness, and ..... boy let me tell ya .... it's an aquired taste to say the least!! I haven't heard anything about it recently, nor can I remember the name they had for it. No doubt, it was probably made illegal in this state anyway ...
The tour guide explained the process by which it was brewed, & it was considered "beer" ..... at 40% alcohol!! Now that's the stuff for the next 3 years!!

Yes I have ... many times. It's big. It's got a lot of flavors going on. My son found a place near Philly that has it on tap. Gotta go try that out sometime soon but till then, I get in 4 packs. To enjoy this imperial stout, you better like DARK and thick. NCBC has a 12th anniversary barrel aged brew brother,Rasputin XI[/url] out in 750 Ml bottles. Sure wish I could try that out - 11.5%

Just a question.....I spend some time in Germany a few light-years ago, so all this micro brewery stuff isn't new to anyone who ever left Kansas....but the fine art of brewing CANNOT be lost....and fortunately it isn't....

Monk's Cafe in Philly is supposed to be a great place for imports on tap, particularly Belgians, as well as fine micro brews. Never been there myself but wish I had. Kinda of like the liberty bell. I was living in the Philly area for years before I ever saw it and only did so because a relative wanted to go. Easy to take things for granted until they're gone.
