What kind of beer does a car guy with a slow oil leak like? Hi-Wire 10W-40 of course.

I don’t know if Hi-Wire was targeting car guys specifically but it looks like there latest imperial stout has been getting lots of attention online as of late. According to a post shared by Craft Beer Critics earlier last year (Dec. 18, 2018) there’s a new beer on the scene that looks a lot like the stuff you find in that used oil container in the back of your garage. I’m 100 percent sure that this beer won’t taste anything like the real 10W-40 though.

Check out the beer, its head, and the post below!

I’m no beer expert, so bear with me ( or is it…beer with me?) but thanks to a cursory search on the internet, if I was a beer expert, I think I might like this beer. As mentioned, this is an Imperial Stout. Stouts include your darker beers and, according to

Imperial stouts are usually extremely dark brown to black in color with flavors that are intensely malty, deeply roasted and sometimes with accents of dark fruit (raisin, fig) and chocolate. The bitterness is typically low to moderate. Imperial stouts are strong and generally exceed 8% ABV.

This particular beer is brewed with coffee from Dynamite Roasting Co. chocolate from French Broad Chocolates and vanilla which combines two things I love, coffee and the sweetness of chocolate. The more I think about that combo, the more I’m hankering for this particular beer!

Since Hi-Wire is based out of North Carolina, if you live in and around NC, you have a better chance of finding 10W-40 in your local grocery store than I do. Here’s a map to help you find their beers. 

As an aside, since my Honda Civic has developed a slow oil leak, I’ve since switched to high-mileage 10W-40 which is thicker at cold temperatures when seals, like my rear main one, starts to shrink causing oil to leak out if there are cracks in said seal.

If ever fix that rear main seal, an imperial stout like this is something I’d have readily at hand!
