    Re: What Beer Are You Drinking? - Fall 2011

    Goose Island "Night Stalker" Imperial Stout landed in my glass earlier. A mighty 11.7% ABV. Dark as coal, and thick as oil. Beautiful beer, with wonderful balance considering what you see upon pouring.

    Re: What Beer Are You Drinking? - Fall 2011

    It might be on a thread here, but I read that some of the Goose Islands, like their coffee stouts, are aged in PVW barrels. If so, that's just genius. So many barrel aged beers are astringent or too sweet, but theirs are like crushed velvet.

    Can you compare/contrast that to Bellhaven's Scottish Ale (if you've ever had BSA)?

    Poured an Oskar Blues GUBNA to accompany our dinner of some spicy cheese brats from my buddy's butcher shop. Grilled them up, sliced 'em, and ate them right of the grill. Stone ground yellow speckled grits as a side. The GUBNA worked perfectly to wash it all down. A great combo.

    Cigar City Big Sound with dinner - a good rich flavorful pour.

    Night Stalker has the same base as Bourbon County Stout.

    You're thinking of the Bourbon County Stout, which comes in a basic variety as well as a Vanilla and "Rare," and perhaps one or two others. The Rare is aged for two years in 23-year-old PVW barrels, and was supposed to be a one-off. I don't know that they use a specific distiller's barrels for the standard BCS, which is aged for five months in the bourbon barrels. These types of stout (and most high-alcohol, non-hoppy beers) can be improved with cellaring, generally for up to five years.

    FFF Alpha King, what a great daily drinker. APA as hoppy or hoppier than many IPAs.

    Scored some Dogfish Head 120 min IPA draft at my local pub last night. Awesome, smooth with a little sweetness on the finish. Glad I tried it but won't be affording that too often, even if I could find it.
