    Re: What Beer Are You Drinking? - Fall 2011

    Had a pint of Stone Double Bastard tonight before we broke out the whiskey. It is a great cool weather beer.

    Bells Cherry Stout.
    Excellent.
    7% good.
    17 bucks bad.
    Taste great, real MI cherry juice brewed in with the stout.
    The cherry does not dominate, it's just right and compliments the coffe/chocolate stout.

    Just had a very fresh pint of Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA on tap. Wow, I always seem for forget how stellar this beer is, especially on tap.

    Just poured one for the Bengals -titans game. There is a unique flavor in jai alai that I can't quite put my finger on, but it makes it a nice change of pace IPA compared to the masses.

    I'm really sorry that Douglas Adams died - I really love his Octoberfest and Winter Collection beers...

    I stopped in my local store today to say hello and the beer guy handed me a Lagunitas Gnarlywine 2010 that he had hidden from himself last year. The almost two years in the bottle has really tamed it. Nicely melded together. Big flavor and a long finish. I'm impressed with it.

    Re: What Beer Are You Drinking? - Fall 2011

    On a whim, I picked up a 4 pack of Atlanta Brewing Company, Red Brick --Brick Mason Series-- "Smoked Vanilla Gorilla" Ale Aged in Oak Whiskey barrels with Vanilla Beans. Try getting that one out clean at the bar... The whim is a result of the last foray I made into two of the funkiest beers I've had in the past couple of years. Firstly, the A-B "Winter's Bourbon Cask Ale that was aged on bourbon barrel pieces and with vanilla beans, from a few years ago. And secondly, a German Rauchbier that I had a couple of years ago at a place in Helen, GA. Both, almost made me gag, but for different reasons. The Winter's BCA was sickenly sweet and way, way way, to vanilly. It took me 6 months to even think of the word vanilla, after that one. And, the Rauchbier that I tried (don't remember the maker, but I posted about it here) was extremely smokey, to the point of being unpleasant. So, maybe I'm thinking, Two wrongs make a right? I think that might be the ticket. This Red Brick is a nice balance of the two. Actually, they really toned down the vanilla in this one, and it's more to the smokey side. The whiskey barrel aging is evident, as well. It has sweetness, without the overpowering vanilla thing. Going in this direction works well, for my tastes. A nice cool evening sipper. Not for every day, but, probably worth a repeat purchase.

    Great Divide Fresh Hop, I love the fall harvest ales that are "wet" hopped and this one is no different.
