Santa's Little Helper Imperial Stout brewed only once a year by Port Brewing.
Delicious! Bitter and sweet perfectly balanced. Although it is high in alcohol (10%) but it does not dominant taste which I like.
From the bottle:
Each year Santa works up that famous list. He takes notes of who's been naughty and who's been nice. To the nice people he brings good cheer. For the people who have been anything but nice, he loads up on big fat lumps of coal.
Thankfully, Santa knows this is one seriously nice beer, brewed only once a year since it was first released in 1997, Santa's little helper has been for annual insurance policy against lumps of coal in our stockings.
Each year, we look forward to the release of the beer which signals the impeding arrival of the jolly old fat man and his merry band of elves. Santa's little helper imperial stout is a black as christmas eve with a decidedly smooth finish. We know you'll find it the perfect companion for chestnuts roasting by an open fire paired with that lump of coal you'll be receiving.

The story line as it is written on the bottle
Wreck Alley Imperial Stout
Beneath the tides off Mission Beach rests Wreck Alley – a dark and mysterious seascape of forgotten ships. Amidst the rusted wreckage is a marine ecosystem, an artificial reef teeming with life. Our Wreck Alley is as dark as the depths of its namesake, an Imperial Stout of uncharted complexity. Brewed with darkly kilned malts, cocoa nibs, and Ethiopian coffee beans, Wreck Alley boasts rich layers of dark chocolate, toffee, and espresso-like roast. Save a bottle. This one has a stout shelf-life.
Alcohol by Volume: 9.5%
Color: 100 SRM
Bitterness: 50 Ivy
raedajOld Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout is soooo delicious Stout, loved it. Old Rasputin develops a cult following wherever it goes. Its a rich, intense brew with big complex flavors & a warming finish. Brewed in the tradition of the 18th century English brewers who supplied the Russian court of Catherine the Great #craftbeer#beer OldRasputin#RussianJmperialStout#RIS#Stout#ImperialStout#LoveBeer1mon
