Really fantastic beer, currently my wife's favorite big porter, ironically

I'm saving these for the weekend, but just in case the Mayan's are right and the weekend never happens, I also grabbed a bomber of La Fin Du Monde...
Really liking the Oyster Stout myself! Enjoy!

You have no cause for those feelings if you can get Surly beers whenever you want.

I NEED to find this. As I have been to Hog Island Oyster Co so many time to grab sacks full of oysters. Im pretty sure thats who they joined with. I love 21st. They are about 2 blocks from the Giants stadium (the ONLY Giants, SF haha). They have some great beers, and they are all in cans.

The Victory at Sea is actually really good. A LOT different than the Narwhal. A heavy coffee influence, with some vanilla on the finish. Roasted malt flavors, but nothing too overwhelming. Really like it. I like them both, but I think the SN Narwhal wins me over a bit more.

Good, but nowhere near as good as Ten Fidy. I still haven't found an imperial stout better than Ten Fidy.

I love Ten Fidy. Haven't tried Narwhal yet (or this one I've never seen before), but my top is Yeti.

Yeti is pretty good, but I still prefer Ten Fidy. It's just so damn good.

Both those are great but if I could only drink one Imperial Stout it'd be Old Rasputin, a perfect combo of chocolate and coffee to me.
