I could easily make a list of 30+ beers for this list but I figured I’d put this up…
My TOP TEN beers for 2011. I have a couple of ties and yes, I do lean toward stouts…
Mikkeller 黑 / Black
Oil Black Stout with 17.5% ABV. Glorious and dangerous.
Evil Twin Wet Dream
Brown IPA with Expresso. Super hops on top with a very bitter finish.
AleSmith Speedway Stout
A fine example of an Imperial Stout.
Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA
A lovely, quite hoppy, IPA.
St. Bernardus Abt 12
A lovely “go to” Belgian ale.
De Molen Hel & Verdoemenis (Hell & Damnation)
Very, very nice Imperial Stout.
Stillwater Stateside Saison
Beautiful Farmhouse Saison.
To Øl Black Ball Porter
Dark and a tad smoky but still round and a bit hoppy.
