    Re: What Beer Are You Drinking Fall 2010

    I met a couple of good friends at Great Lakes Brewing Company for a couple of beers and some dinner. On the beer side, I had a pint of their Quitness Ale and a barrel aged Blackout Stout.

    The Quitness is a "dry hopped IPA with a bitter aftertaste", brewed in honor of the former Cavalier that Clevelanders love to hate. It was surprisingly balanced for a beer with that bitter billing and I probably should have had had a second

    At 9.5% ABV, the barrel aged stout was overly alcoholic and the high ABV totally dominated the sweetness of the stout. It was very disappointing.

    I don't think I've ever tasted a high ABV beer and found it enjoyable. It is pretty odd considering the amount of barrel strength bourbon that I've consumed and enjoyed. I think that the higher alcohol content seems to be out of context in the beers

    Well I've had so many great beers of late, and I also got back from Portland OR some time ago... that's beer nirvana right there folks...

    The weather is starting to get some chill, so I've been Imibibing some stouts mostly Imperial, and some Oatmeal ones... great beer for the winter time for sure which feels like it's right around the corner....

    These are all good
    • Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti
    • Dogfish Head Bitches Brew
    • Founders Breakfast Stout
    And this is off the hook
    • Goose Island Bourbon County stout

    And it's nice to have some good ol' Beamish and Murphy's Stout which, along with Guinness and Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout, will be in regular rotation around here this fall/winter.

    Re: What Beer Are You Drinking Fall 2010

    I'm finally having Samuel Smiths Oatmeal Stout. It seems like a very mellow, creamy porter. It's just delicious. It seems like the porter bitterness is very muted. Is it a porter?

    I also enjoyed a six pack of Budweiser American Ale this last week or so. It's a very good value.

    It's a stout, not a porter.

    Thumbs up Re: What Beer Are You Drinking Fall 2010

    Enjoying a Sam Adams Winter Lager from the Sam Adams "Winter Classics" mixed case that I picked up at Costco. I want to give a big shout-out to SA for dumping the Cranberry Lambic from this collection, and replacing it with their Chocolate Bock. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! I just can't stand the Cranberry Lambic, and I've really liked the Chocolate Bock that I've had. I'll hang on to the Holiday Porter and Old Fezziwigs Ale until Christmas. Love the labels. The beer's pretty good, too. I think I'll go to the White Ale next, while listening to LSU on the radio...
