Default Russian Imperial Stout

I have never had this style. What are some good representatives to try to see if I like it?

Old Rasputin if you can locate it... it is my favorite beer on this planet:

Old Rasputin, Stone, Great Divide Yeti, Elysian Dragon's Tooth (technically not bitter enough, but my fave.) are my top 4.

Grant's used to be on the list...

Just had Old Rasputin for the first time earlier this week. It's quite intense.

Another +1 for Old Rasputin. My Trader Joe's carries it.

Old Rasputin is by far my favorite. Storm King from Victory is another good one if you can find it.

If you can find it towards Christmas, try to track down Goose Island's Bourbon County Stout. Its not just a beer, its an experience.

Bell's Expedition Stout is very tasty too.

I haven't had to many of this style, but if you can get it I recommend Giant Slayer by Tri City brewing. Beer advocate had two reviews that knocked it, but when I tried it at a tasting it was very good IMO. Or maybe I was already feeling the IPAs...

I've got a bottle in the fridge waiting for just the right time. Maybe tonight.
