Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Do you love huge dark beers, coffee, and a hint of spice?  Then we have the totally unique, amazing beer for you. This is a massive Imperial Porter that starts with 15 lbs of base malt and a laundry list of specialty malts. This recipe hails from the Project Extreme Brewing book. It was originally created by Dogfish Head coworkers where it won an internal small batch brewing competition on the basis of its amazing, unique flavors.  Big and black with caramel, wheat, black, and chocolate malts to give it a dark, roasty flavor.  You provide the Sanka instant coffee, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Named after the coffee drinking, pioneer science teach Mr. Hector Vargus from the 80's movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High. This is one of those rare beers that can age gracefully for years.
