Opened up the Great Divide Espresso Oak-Aged Yeti Imperial Stout tonight at a fabulous dinner at Justin R's.  Having heard that this might be a dessert beer, we had it with Amy's Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and Justin's Fresh berry and custard tart. 

This beer is absolutely incredible.  I've tasted very few beers that are this complex.  Too many flavors and scents too list but there's everything from chocolate to vanilla to wood to fruit to cream to malty goodness.  Phenomenal.  Seek it out.

One of the greatest beer selections I've seen in New England.

My bounty this time around includes:
Dogfish Head Immort Ale
Great Divide Yeti Imperial Stout
Aventinus Dopple bock
Stone Ruination IPA
Berkshire Imperial Stout
Berkshhire Coffeehouse Porter
Weihenstephaner Dopple Bock
a Rauchbier whose name I can't even read off the label
He'Brew Jewbelation Twelve

I'm well stocked.

The store's only weak point was the rather pedestrian selection of British products. 

I avoided the Belgians, as the Richmond store does a fine job with those. 

 I highly recommend the place to anyone who is passing withing 30 miles of Andover, MA. 
I hear that they do a great job with wine as well, but I'm clueless
