    You're right - I had a Stone Soup last night and it was ok, but not very interesting.

    The Chocolate Indulgence really is as good as the notes make it sound. Judging by your previous posts, I'd say this one is right up your alley, Joe. I'd try a few other Ommegang beers too if you get the chance. They are all of excellent quality and a few bucks cheaper than your normal Belgian import. By the way, Duvel bought the Ommegang brewery a few years back which is why it now has national distribution, at least in most major metropolitan areas.

    I knocked off my six pack but won't be heading back for more Stone Soup any time soon. By the way, did you hear about the bar in Manhattan that got nailed for selling New Glarus's Spotted Cow? I guess that's illegal, as NG products are technically only for sale in Wisconsin at the moment. That'll likely end soon due to the mutli-million expansion at the brewery.

    Spotted Cow is good stuff -- that's great news.

    Thumbs up Re: What Beer are you drinking? Fall 2009

    The Holiday Season can now officially begin. Just saw the annual Budweiser Holiday Clydesdale commercial on TV during the Steelers-Ravens game. I really don't want a beer, but I'm going to have a Bud. I drink a lot more micros these days, but I always have some Bud in my beer fridge. Don't have my Budweiser Holiday Steins down yet, but it's still tasting pretty good out of the bottle.

    I've just rounded the corner into porter and stout season in my house. I've had loads of great stout from a half dozen micros but less success finding good porters. Any recommendations?

    Bateman's XXX Bitter, along with some Ballantine's Finest blended Scotch. Nice combo!
