    Sierra Nevada "Sierra" 30th Anniversary Stout. A nice beer. Silky. Very dark. Flavorful, but not something I would consider spectacular. I do like that it is not overly sweet. What is spectacular is the head on this beer. I have never seen a thicker and more dense foam on any beer. It's actually kinda cool to look at. It reminds me of that "Great Stuff" foam insulation in the can. I'm half-tempted to drop things into the glass to see how much weight the head will support.

    Can't wait to try the SN 30th Stout (aka Fritz and Ken's Ale). What's even more attractive about is it that it's only $9.99 .. Well, as long as people aren't price gouging anyways.

    While at one of my accounts today they recieved some Kentucky Breakfast Stout by Founders of Grand Rapids Michigan.
    Sam, the owner of the store took the 3 cases he recieved and immediatly put them out of sight behind the counter.
    "What's up with that I asked?", he said that these were in great demand and he was saving them for special customers.
    This stout was aged in used bourbon barrels for a year.
    It retails for $22.00 plus sales tax and deposit for a 12oz 4-pack.
    Anyone out there ever try it?

    I got my call for a 4 pack last week. Had one over the weekend as the proprietor said you won't slam this down while watching a game. Huge Imperial Stout beer meant for sipping. Coffee and chocolate with a long finish. Some bourbons notes on entry that don't last long.

    If I find another 4 pack, I'd pick it up for next winter.

    Ya it's great and very popular... With some places gouging as much as $9 per 12oz bottle. It's pricey, but I'd recommend trying it. It's one of the most popular annual releases of a barrel aged beer. If stores don't hide it or limit it to a 1-2 bottle or 1-2 4 pack limit, someone will walk in and buy it all, and most stores only got like 3-4 cases unless they're a really good account.

    Corn Cognac I like that. I am familiar with Ypsilanti.

    Thanks for the tip.
