Winter is coming. What to drink to get warm

Author: Sergey Brusentsov

Winter is coming, and strong sorts of beer are what everybody needs now 🙂 To decide what to drink is easy, the tricky part, as I told mentioned yesterday, is where to buy it.

If you take a closer look at TOP beer lists on BeerAdvocate, RateBeer or Untappd, you will see that most of the rated beers are Imperial kinds such as Imperial Stouts, Imperial IPAs, Tripels, Quadrupels, etc. And it is obvious why – they have rich aroma and taste 🙂

Let’s look what we have on RateBeer for Canada.

Imperial stouts:

  • Dieu du Ciel Péché Mortel en Fût de Bourbon Américain
  • Dieu du Ciel Péché Mortel
  • Bellwoods Skeleton Key
  • Dieu du Ciel Grande Noirceur
  • St. Ambroise Stout Impériale Russe
  • Half Pints Le Temps Noir
  • Bellwoods 3 Minutes to Midnight
  • Flying Monkeys BNL Imperial Chocolate Stout
  • Dunham Petite Mort

Belgian Strong Ales:

  • Charlevoix Dominus Vobiscum Lupulus
  • Le Trou du Diable Buteuse Brassin Spécial (Brandy Oak)
  • Charlevoix Dominus Vobiscum Hibernus

Imperial IPAs:

  • Les Trois Mousquetaires Hors Série Double IPA


  • Unibroue Trois Pistoles
  • Unibroue La Terrible
  • Abt/Quadrupel

American Strong Ales:

  • Dieu du Ciel Quintessence

Seventeen from fifty (i.e. 30%) top-rated beers are strong ales. But if we look more carefully, then we can see that they take up 50% of the top rated beers, because we have to exclude 14 ciders 🙂

So if you can find something from the list above – you are lucky. If not, then just try to get good strong beer (considering the ratings) and enjoy 🙂
