If you’re looking for an amazingly great tasting beer, or to impress friends by flexing your knowledge of beer bottles. the ten best selections list here is a fantastic place to start.
- Trappist Westvleteren 12 by Brouwerij Westvleteren. A mystical, super rare Quadrupel brewed by monks in an abbey located in the hills of Belgium. Complex, alcoholic, and deep in flavor, this is the one beer that nearly everyone is dying to try.
- The Abyss by Deschutes Brewery. This is a world class imperial stout, brewed for the winter season with eleven percent alcohol to warm your insides and cure those chilly blues. Roasted, malty, and as dark as its title implies, The Abyss is an incredible stout that cannot be forgotten.
- Pliny the Elder by Russian River Brewing Company. The near perfect India pale ale that’s sure to cause a fight in your local liquor store over who’s going to snag the last bottle on the shelf. An absolute must try for hops fans, with delicious aromas and an amazingly clean, fresh taste capable of haunting your palate for months.
- Kate the Great by Portsmouth Brewery. Brewed only once a year, this New Hampshire beer company creates a complete ruckus annually with their incredible Russian imperial stout. Smooth body, huge taste, and potent alcohol make this one of the best around.
- Kentucky Breakfast Stout by Founders Brewing Company. One of a kind stout aged in bourbon barrels for an unusual, yet shockingly enjoyable taste. Highly sought after, and only released once per year, Founders struck gold with a bottled beer that fans simply can’t seem to get enough of.
- Dark Lord Imperial Stout by Three Floyds Brewing Company. A beer so special it has its own festival for release, requiring beer enthusiasts to present golden tickets which entitle them to purchase this incredible imperial stout. Dark chocolate, coffee, and molasses are just some of the tastes to expect from each wax sealed bottle of Dark Lord.
- The Perfect Storm by Pelican Pub and Brewery. At 13.5 percent alcohol, this is one fall barleywine that’s sure to knock your socks off, while still remaining highly drinkable in the right portions. Dark brown color, dried fruit, bourbon, oak, and caramel round out a near perfectly crafted beer from this Oregon brewing company.
- Supplication by Russian River Brewing Company. Tart, sweet, and malty, this American wild ale from Russian River truly excites and amazes the taste buds. Considered to be one of the best domestic ales available, be sure to snap this beer up if you ever see a bottle available.
- Black Tuesday by The Bruery. Hold onto your beer glass for this one, because at 19.5 percent alcohol, Black Tuesday is one imperial stout which shouldn’t be taken lightly. Black as night, full bodied, and with massive flavor, this is one to share with a friend.
- Trappistes Rochefort 10 by Brasserie de Rochefort. The monks are at it again! A booming, dark quadrupel weighing in at a whopping 11.3 percent alcohol for your drinking pleasure. Unlike the Westvleteren, this is far easier to obtain, and still astonishingly drinkable, especially for such a complex Belgian beer.
