Update, 3/2/2012: Browsing through the beer menu at my local Taco Mac as I am always wont to do, I noticed that I hadn't yet added Sweetwater Happy Ending Imperial Stout to my Brewniversity list. I had seen a few choices that interested me, but as they were all short pours I went for a Happy Ending instead. $5.75 for a full 20 ounce pour of a 9% ABV imperial stout? Can't argue with that. The beer was rich and chocolaty, roasty and packed with licorice as always. Those minty grassy hops and the warming alcohol finish made this an excellent choice, perfect match to blackened salmon over broccoli in a light cream sauce. Blackened beer with blackened seafood? Why not? A bargain at $8.99 a six-pack in bottles, too.
And remember, try a new beer today, and drink outside the box.
