De Molen Cease and Desist. Station Taproom Downingtown.

I've seen the light. And it's Cease and Desist Russian Imperial Stout.

So I stopped into the Station Taproom in Downingtown the other week for their happy hour. I haven't been there in about a year. They have a great happy hour. Most pints are $3. And they have a great selection.

Oh and the delicious pork sammies are $5.

I had two beers then I ordered a De Molen Cease and Desist Russian Imperial Stout and was all, "WHHHAAATT?" It was so good. I really like beer but I'm not a total beer geek. I'll find beers that I really like but rarely do I find one that is so great that I love every sip like I do with wine.

Well I was enjoying it so much that I didn't even notice it wasn't even a pint. It was a 10 ounce. Well I knew that it wasn't a pint but thought it was included in the $3 beers. It wasn't. It was $9!!! It was my mistake though. And I would never intentionally order a $9 beer but I'm glad I did. It was deeeelisssh!

And the staff there? All really friendly. I give Station Taproom a thumbs up.

Ah yes, the old Rasputin, then "Disputin", now "Cease & Desist". I've never had it. But I regularly grab Old Rasputin at Wegman's. Good stuff. Yeah, around 10% ABV they start shorting the ounces.

Eric - I read that they changed the name from Rasputin because of a legal dispute. Seems like "Cease and Desist" make sense.

As discussed before throw down a few there soon.

I've had the Rasputin from North Coast (the brewery that caused the name change), but I've never seen this one. I'm not a huge fan of Imperial Russians, but I'd give it a go for the name alone.
