    Goose Island's Fathomless

    This Baltic porter pours a deep ruby black and has a roasty aroma with subtle hints of molasses and dark fruit. On the palate, it has a balanced flavor profile with notes of bittersweet chocolate and tobacco.

  • 12/3
    Half Acre's Big Hugs
    Midwest

    Super-concentrated coffee from El Salvadorian beans enhances this imperial stout. At 10% ABV, it's smooth, balanced and easy to drink, with undertones of dark fruit and cocoa.

    Hi-Wire collab with Zillicoah Beer Co.'s Irish Stout
    Southeast

    Brewed with North Carolina malt, this 4.5% ABV Irish stout doesn't lack for body or satisfyingly roasty chocolate notes.

    Stone Brewing's Enjoy By 01.01.19
    Southwest

    This variant of the Enjoy By IPA series features innovative brewing techniques that give it a bright effervescence and a super-dry finish. Its refreshing notes of citrus and peach are perfect for the holiday season, but won't last too long.
