Had some Neapolitan Milk Stout by Saugatuck Brewing tonight. Definitely different. They got the trio of flavors in, for sure -- strawberry dominates, then the chocolate and then the vanilla. Probably more of a one-off novelty purchase than a regular addition to the rotation.
Fifty Fifty Eclipse Blue Wax (Old Fitz barrel aged) while watching my Vikes go for the playoffs. Lots of chocolate with a sweet finish like a milkshake. I dont taste much from the barrel but still a great stout. I may need to pick up a couple more of these while they're available.
Some Orval and Rochefort 10 on this Belgian day.
Thanks to one of our kind Chicago friends I am having a Three Floyds night. Had a Gumbalhead. I don't like wheat beers but the ridiculous amount of hops saved it. I can't recall another overhopped wheat beer and this one is worth trying. After that got into the Dreadnaught. 3F is definitely a hop shop and they do it well. Zombie Dust is for tomorrow. If I can wait that long.
DIPA day/night while watching playoff implication football:
1. Heady Topper
HT wins the day...as usual but the other two are no slouches.
I had a Zombie dust in Christmas Eve thanks to my cousins husband. It really is a fantastic beer. vey nice balance and not just hops for the sale if hops like the trend seems to be going these days. He me mentioned it was almost impossible to find. Well, I seem to have better beer searching luck than bourbon searching as a orphaned six pack found a good home today. Looks like New Years will bring a zombie apocalypse for my brother and I tonight!
DFH 120 this afternoon.
Best regards, Tony

Rang in the new year with Great Divides Hibernation Ale and Claymore Scotch (wee heavey), Cincinnatus (barrel aged imperial stout from local brewer) and Three Floyd's Zombie Dust. All great beers.
