Any chance anyone is sitting on a clone recipe to the North Coast Old Rasputin Imperial? Or something similar - I'm actually looking for a "big" beer (and love the North Coast) to do w/ some Pacman trub. I'm not terribly knowledgeable on big beers and imperials so some direction or advice would be great. Just about all I do now is partial mashing, but I'm right on the edge of going all-grain so I suppose a extract recipe would be the best idea for now (plus i doubt going imperial on the first all-grain is wise )......but I could be convinced otherwsie if there is a slam-dunk recipe out there!

Fullers "Golden Pride"

Anyone who does not drink his beer in moderation is not going to get to read this anyway......

They might not be able to read that the last post in this thread was from seven years ago!

Westy 12 - Arguably my favorite beer, wish it was more available

Rogue Old Crustacean - Great Barleywine, maybe my favorite.

Dogfish Head World Wide Stout - Did not like this at first, then I realized it's because I didn't follow the instructions and drank it cold. I know much better now.

Victory Old Horizontal - Between this and OC for my favorite Barley Wine

Troegs Troegenator - Mmmm doublebocks

Dogfish Burton Baton - OMG how I love this beer

Founders KBS - Even better than the original Breakfast Stout

Ramstein Winter Wheat Eisbock - Not nationwide at all but an awesome offering from an NJ brewery.

Troegs Mad Elf - It's not christmas time in NJ without Mad Elf

Gulden Draak - First favorite Belgian

Three Philosophers - Great Quad

Old Rasputin - Not a big stout guy as you may have guessed by bock, Belgian, and IIPA dominated list so far, but this one is great.

Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout - Whoops another stout. Love Russian Imperial stouts.

Oscar Blues Ten Fidy

Carton Decoy - Very wintery and warm.

Founders Backwoods Bastard - Best Scotch Ale

Allagash Four - Swear that's it. That's my last suggestion.

I'd toss Delerium Tremens into the basket of beers you should try. Kinda spendy for a regular brew, but fun for the occasional imbibing.
