Default Oskar Blues

I dig them.

They can all of their beers.

Gordon is the bomb.

They have an Imperial Stout coming out soon--yes, in cans.

This is the until-now-draft-only imperial stout from Oskar Blues. As you know, we have quite an affinity for anything OB here at DrinkCraftBeer.com. I’m pretty psyched to see an imperial stout in a can… time to see how beer ages in cans I guess! Plus it’s going to be a sweet looking can! Label says:
Half Baked. Fully Roasted. Cross-eyed. Cyclopean. Cancupiscent.
10.5% abv
12 oz. can
UPDATE FROM OSKAR BLUES:
On Oct. 10 at 10:50 AM at our pub in Lyons, Oskar Blues will release the first cans of our highly acclaimed Ten FIDY Imperial Stout.

First brewed last year as our winter seasonal, it's a gentle-giant rendition of the style. Immensely malty and viscous, its hefty alcohol (10.5% ) and IBUs are buried under thick, comforting blankets of roasted flavor.

Like our other canned goods, Ten FIDY expands the definition of "canned beer."

We're canning up just 100 cases of Ten FIDY, and it will only be available for purchase at the brewpub. It'll be in fourpacks, a la our Gordon. For $10.50. Get here fast if you'd like some for your OBB stash, we expect these cans to go in a very short time.

I've never tried an imperial stout.

Is it a one glass thing or is it easy to drink?

Are their beers expensive where you are? They have been really high here, prices have come down some (now on average with other micros).

I have had their pale ale from the can...I really do not like it for some reason.

Have had their Old Chub and Gordon on tap and like it very much.

orfy- an imperial stout is a "one glass" kind of thing, usually between 8 and 11% abv in my experience. Absolutely delicious, though.

The gordon is expensive, yes. 11 bucks for a 4 pack of cans. When I get it, it is a treat. That's a big beer though.

The rest aren't too bad, no different than say a sixxer of Stone or similar.

I didn't like Dale's at first, but I think it was old. Since then, it is a very good pale ale. It has a grainy flavor that is really unique.

Great pics 'topia!

You are doing yourself an injustice!!!

The American breweries are making some great IS beers. I know that doesn't help you very much, but maybe you can find something there. It is a perfect beer to sip on in front of a fire on a cold winter night.
