    Just killed a bunch of AMerican Porter and Milk Stouts..

    Founders Porter
    Duck Rabbit Milk

    mighty tasty.

    Also killed some hop Stoopid from Lagunitas and SN Hoptimum. The Hoptimum was like eating a Christmas tree.

    Picked up in New York recently more Guinness FES, some Carnegie Porter 2004 vintage (old Swedish brand in the style of a Baltic porter but less strong, 5.5% ABV), Wrassler's Full Stout, made by Porterhouse, a brewpub/brewery in Ireland, and Tenfidy Imperial Stout, made by one of Cliff's favourite breweries, Oskar Blues.

    Going to taste these soon with SB-er (but only occasional contributor) Gary Hodder and I hope to post some jointly written notes on these soon.

    Anderson Valley Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout. This is a favorite of mine. Very sweet chocolate with a minimal but perfect hops presence that balances out the finish. The only problem is it is one of the few beers that my girlfriend also loves, so whenever I buy it I need to pick up double!

    It wasn't quite 5 o'clock here, but I just couldn't wait to get into a 2011 Sierra Nevada Glissade Golden Bock.

    Founders Double Trouble very heavy on the hops. Too heavy for me. If you like IPA I think you'll love this beer as it was more than just hops the the IBU is something like 86.

    Give me a beer with a 26 IBU and you're saying something.

    Bought a bottle just to try.

    KSB will be available in mid March. I'm on the call list. I think I'll have one from last year on Sunday while watching the SB just because I can.

    Syncrhonicity.

    While waiting on some takeout at the local joint, I had a pint of Southern Tier 2xIPA and also a pour of....Founders Double Trouble.

    The 2x had a great hoppy aroma and was very crisp, clean and enjoyable. The Founders was a bit deeper and with the slightly higher ABV the citrus from the hops was not as pronounced though it was well rounded.


    I'm no hop head, but I love the citrus influence of the hop blends.

    I grabbed a six of Heavy Seas Black Cannon - Black IPA.

    It's the Black version of Loose Cannon and I prefer it. The cirtus is muted just enough as is the pine from the IPA. Pretty well balanced and goes down nice.

    My favorite version of this beer is still the Heavy Seas on cask though.

    Re: What Beer are you drinking - Winter '10/'11

    A coworker gave me a bottle of New Glarus Brewing's Smoked Rye Ale (a one-off, essentially, according to the label).

    A smoky, campfire nose, from loads of smoked malt. The rye is really a background flavor here.

    from the label: "A bold rich smoky nose is created naturally from a blend of smoked malts from Bamberg Germany and Chilton, Wisconsin, as well as robust Wisconsin rye. Special ale yeast ferments this hazy deep amber brew in the bottle. This is a big smoked beer fermented with Turbinado sugar..."

    I think the smoked malt wins out over the rye. Not that it's a bad thing. This reminds me a lot of Ardmore Scotch-- it would be perfect next to an Ardmore or another peated highlander.
