Edit: Would understand cringing at the price a little, though.
Who said anything about me not digging lagers?
"Imperial Pilsners" are, in my opinion, an oxymoronic bastardization of what can be a very nice style (a simple German or Bohemian pils). I've had a few Imperial Pilsners and I've yet to be impressed by any of them.
If they wanted something for this limited release series, why couldn't they stick with something a tad more traditional like a baltic porter or doppelbock? :/
Fair enough. I've had a number of Imperial Pilsners that I've enjoyed, especially from Jacks Abby and Mikkeller, so different strokes, I guess. I'd never turn down a Baltic Porter, either.
I'll partially retract my statement to indicate that I'm a Jack's Abby fanboy. If I knew Jack's Abby was releasing another jacked up pilsner/lager, I'd be excited. Black Oak however? Not so much.
