    Thad, that is more Stingo than I have seen all year!! Looking forward to your thoughts... of course if you hate it I would feel obligated to take it off your hands

    Good catch on that Stingo, that is an example of an English strong beer which used to be brewed seasonally, in spring or autumn, for aging into the following season or even year(s). It would be well-hopped to last the aging, and be set down in wood for a long spell to get a balanced palate, not too sweet, not too dry, not too bitter, with the flavours of age (often a nutty or Madeira-like effect). Cheers.

    Thanks for the description, Gary. I'm drinking it right now and the dryness did surprise me a little bit (in a good way). It almost makes the beer taste lighter to me than it should. Definitely one that I'll buy again.

    Re: What Beer are you drinking spring 2011

    I've been digging Great Lakes' Lake Erie Monster. It's an Imperial IPA that tastes very tamed, in a pleasing way, at least to me. My favorite Great Lakes brews have a clean water taste in their carbonation that works to balance the big flavors underneath. I could see how someone might miss the more boom-y, bitter and/or fruity hops, but I find it tasty and refreshing. It comes in at 9.1%, so no skimping on the alkyhol either.

    I find most easy-going beers in the 9% range rely on sweet malt to keep other flavors under control. That's not the case with this one, and I like it.

    A St Sebastiaan dark ale (a dubbel - cool bottle) and a bottle of Stone smoked porter today. I've got some more Samuel Smith's and Westmal that will meet their dooms tomorrow, and a few Guinness for Sunday.

    Just poured a KY Bourbon Barrel Ale. Nice beer on a summer night. Better as the chill fades.
