I'd Say It was a Pretty Good Night

Central Waters Brewhouse Coffee Stout, Drake's Imperial Stout, Peche Mortel, Stone 2009 Imperial Russian Stout, 2009 Boulder Obovoid Imperial Stout. That wouldn't be a bad night of beer tasting. But those are the beers that didn't get opened on Saturday night at my house, where I hosted an Imperial Stout tasting.

The beers that we did try: 2008 Terrapin Coffee Oatmeal Stout, Bell's Expedition Stout, Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout, Victory Storm King, 2006 Avery Mephistopheles, 2009 Port Older
Viscosity, Dark Horizon #2, Allagash Fluxus, Brewdog Rip Tide, HaandBryggeriet Dark Force, Mikkeller Black #2, 2008 Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout, 2008 Goose Island Bourbon County Stout, Brew Dog Tokio, DFH World Wide Stout, 2008, 2009 Port Santa's Little Helper, Ballast Point Sea Monster, 2005, 2007 Stone Imperial Russian Stout, Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout, 2008 Deschutes The Abyss, Gooose Island Night Stalker, 2009 Lost Abbey Serpent's Stout, Stone 12th Anniversary Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout, Goose Island Bourbon County Coffee Stout, Hoppin' Frog BORIS the Crusher, 2009 Big Sky Ivan the Terrible, 2009 Great Divide Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti, 2008 Schlafly Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout, 2008, 2009, 2010 Three Floyds Dark Lord, Surly Darkness. Oh, and homebrewed Imperial Maple Stout from Goat Head Brewing's Majin Garcia and Chocolate Imperial Stout from Sam Adams Longshot winner Ben Miller. Thanks to those guys and also Michael, Gabe, Mel, and Stan for bringing beers to share, and to everyone else who came and made it a great time...and ensured that I will be eating leftover brisket until next year's stout tasting!

My Dark Lord has gold wax on it. Looks like a nice little tasting.

Wish Greg and I could have been there :( We had a wine tasting earlier that day and then drinks at the horse track and then drinks at dinner. By 6:00 I was down and out. On a side note...we are bottling our first home brew later today! I will let you know how it turns out.
