Top 10 beers in the world press

El Gordo Imperial Stout, Good People,  Birmingham, Alabama, US

16-ElGordo

“Not a single one of us had ever had this beer before, and it’s safe to say it came out of left field and blew us all away, said Vorel of his number one imperial stout.

He said: “Truth be told, it wasn’t even close. This beer is massive. It’s beyond massive. The flavors are so intense that we immediately thought we’d made a mistake and accidentally included a barrel-aged beer. We seriously called up the brewery the next day just to make sure. The booze hits like a freight train pulling cars filled to the brum with dark fruit, raisin, sherry and even a teensy bit of drying roast. Ultimately, though, El Gordo is extremely rich, beguiling and devastating. Of the 37 non-barrel-aged imperial stouts we were able to get our hands on, it’s the clear winner.”
