    Re: What Beer Are You Drinking? - Fall 2011

    Port Brewing Older Viscosity, mmmm. Big, roasty, Malty, brown sugar, lots of molasses and wood from the barrel aging. Normally I'm a hophead, but I love this.

    Re: What Beer Are You Drinking? - Fall 2011

    I enjoyed a couple of Southern Tier offerings this weekend. Started off with the Pumking, and it was much better than the first time that I had it. I then had the Creme Brule Imperial Milk Stout and wow, is that a sweet beer. The name gives it away, but it was more of a desert beer than anything else. It was good, but it will be a while before I have it again.

    Had some Southern Tier Hop Sun myself and really loved it. Looking forward to trying some of their other beers.

    Re: What Beer Are You Drinking? - Fall 2011

    Cleveland Beer week was last week so I drank a bunch of beer.

    http://www.clevelandbeerweek.org/

    One standout I had at the final event, with 80+ beers, was the Willoughby Brewing Company - Peanut Butter Cup Coffee Porter. The flavors were all there and I think the Porter definitely allowed this to happen easier than a Stout.

    Great story here too, this place was built a few years back and the beer was pretty sucky. A couple guys bought it out and convinced a local home brewer to take over, which he agreed to, and now they are making very good products.

    I talked to the Brewer at the final event and congratulated him on his good work. He was very, very happy about his opportunity and good fortune.

    In other news, if your into beer travel think about coming up for a few days for Cleveland Beer Week next year. As you can see by the schedule, tons of events every night for 7 days and Breweries are very well represented with personnel in attendance who make appearances at the dinner and special keg tapping events.

    Next year will be the 4th year and they are really starting to hit their stride. Well, except for the schedule on the web page, that thing is a PITA to navigate.

    Goose Island Harvest Ale. Beautiful nose. Gorgeous color. Thick and dense head. Nice maltiness at mid palate. I'll give this one high marks.

    Innis & Gunn Scottish barrel aged beer. Almost too sweet at first taste but ends up being well balanced with lots of wood flavors. Yummy

    I like the standard Innis & Gunn.

    I tried the rum cask this spring and had to dump it out.

    Last night I had several Yngling's (sp). My new Budwesier.

    Hey, I from Clan Gunn!

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