    Founders Breakfast Stout – 10oz – 8.3%
    Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates, and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever
    Cigar City Marshal Zhukov’s Penultimate Push – 10oz – 11.5%
    Aromas of fresh-ground espresso beans, vanilla and alcohol spiciness dominate the nose in this imposing Imperial Stout. The palate finds strong flavors of fudge, coffee, penuche, and raisin pudding balanced by moderate carbonation and assertive German hop flavor and bitterness, while the sweetness of vanilla and cacao rounds out the beer’s long finish.
    Sierra Nevada Narwhal – 10oz – 10.2%
    Narwhal Imperial Stout is inspired by the mysterious creature that thrives in the deepest fathoms of the frigid Arctic Ocean. Features incredible depth of malt flavor, rich with notes of espresso, baker’s cocoa, roasted grain and a light hint of smoke.
    Stone 2014 Imperial Russian Stout – 10oz – 10.8%
    Stone Imperial Russian Stout is so thick, rich and, well, sinful, you might worry that you’ll be doomed to the fiery pits just for thinking about a sip. This massive and intensely aromatic beer abounds with notes of chocolate, coffee, black currants, anise and roastiness, and its heavy palate is nothing to be trifled with
    Oskar Blues 2016 Ten-Fidy – 10oz – 10.5%
    This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hide a hefty 65 IBUs underneath the smooth blanket of malt. Ten FIDY (10.5% ABV) is made with enormous amounts of two-row malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, flaked oats, and hops. Ten FIDY is the ultimate celebration of dark malts and boundary-stretching beer.
