Black Butte is one of my favorites! It's often either that or Old Rasputin Imperial: https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/112/412/


Old Rasputin: Produced in the tradition of 18th Century English brewers who supplied the court of Russia's Catherine the Great, Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout seems to develop a cult following wherever it goes. It's a rich, intense brew with big complex flavors and a warming finish.


https://www.deschutesbrewery.com/beer/big-rig/ Landing in WA for $3.61 plus 9.1% tax so very good deal per 22 oz. Really good beer here. It's not the best, not the best from Deschutes, but I am on this kick now. It's like the OG of ales here, not the best, like OG is just a really good bud and not the best, it's well worth it.


I once made a batch of ale and added coffee to the ingredients and smoked them in my Big Chief, but was too much both in coffee and smoke. I had to blend in another batch to tame it and it turned out fine after that. I now saw someone making ale with coffee. I've seen Alaskan use white spruce bark. Flavors of burnt oak can be achieved in storage. But I am considering throwing pine cones into a batch to try it, also wonder about vanilla. My Xmas ale, 6 chocolate covered cherries at mid boil went over pretty smooth. What ingredients would you like to see?


http://blackravenbrewing.com/Beerfolio/coco-jones-coconut-porter Very clear body, creamy head, light caramel color, yes - initial coconut flavor...first taste. not over hopped but that's personal taste, but I'm getting hopped out anyway, so not hoppy was refreshing in this porter, excellent tasting and as it sits in mouth had obvious character and almost a chocolatey flavor and pretty smooth. Worth a try. First Black Raven I've had but I've heard others talk it up on occasion.
