When the weather sucks, Fish 2002 Poseidon Oak Aged Imperial Stout
Some years ago a a pal and myself ail ordered a bunch of seasonal brews from the west coast (Jubel etc). We had 3-4 magnums of the Fish mentioned above. Well being how the weather really sucks in NYC right now, we figured it was finally time to hit this big boy.
It poured out w/a great bouquet, full body and surprisingly a nice head. The previous bottle I opened 5-6 years ago had a (sorry about this) a spurt of serious beer scum.
This bottle was tasty w/a hint of sourness @ the end. I wish I had 2-3 bottles more. I've head that Fish no longer makes these brews. What a shame, especially since they were one of the first (as far as I know) to do barrel aging in recent years.
