    Yeah. I didn't realize it had peat smoked malt in it until I took a sip; quite a surprise. It was unique, but not something I truly enjoyed. My homebrew buddy has been trying to talk me into a peat smoked beer, but I've been resisting. This didn't do him any favors, but I'll certainly let him try one of the other bottles I have sitting around.

    The wife and I cracked a 2011 DL while watching T2 with some friends last night. I enjoy the beer enough, but wish there was less of the soy sauce component. Certainly sweet and thick enough to be a long slow sipper though.

    Today was Double Daisy Cutter Day. Though Chicago's Half Acre brewery is practically in my backyard, this was the first time I made it over to their brewery to pick up a special release. Their regular Daisy Cutter is a very pleasant pale ale with some creamy honey and grapefruit notes. The (annually?) brewed Double Daisy Cutter is more hoppy with more of a bite, but a really really mellow 8%. I picked up a growler and four 22oz bottles.

    The bourbon will have to take a break for a few hours while I tend to the growler.

    Bell's Hopslam tonight. Very good and balanced. Hoppy (obviously) but not overly so. I'm glad I picked up a couple of these!

    I love regular Daisy Cutter and wish it was more readily available. I still contend that it's my favorite pale ale. Most of my beer drinking buddies pass it up now for Zombie Dust, which I like (but not quite as much). I picked up some Double Daisy Cutter last year. I enjoyed it, but wouldn't go through the hassle of getting up there to get it.

    Had my first Westvleteren 12. Picked up a coupe of bottles in a trade. I don't know if it is the best beer in the world as touted since I have not tasted all the beers yet (I am trying) but it is the best beer I have ever tasted by a wide margin.

    Williamsburg Alewerks Washington's Porter... these flks are making some great beer and the porter is spot on. This is a classic porter not a stout wanna be or a heavy dark ale. Worth a try...

    I've had a few Westy's, all fresh. I've liked them but not any more than other quality Quads that I've had. Really looking forward to aging some to see what develops. Right now I think my oldest bottle is approximately two years. I'm going to wait until I have one for three and then do a vertical.

    Good Gosh, March already...This year is moving. Wrapping up the week with a Stone Cali-Belgique IPA. I had this at the Brewery in January, and was pleased to see it at my local shop this week.

    Re: What Beer Are You Drinking? - Winter 2011/2012

    A blending of Sinha Stout (Lion Stout in some markets) and a craft stout from Ontario, Black Creek Stout.

    Lion is from Sri Lanka which may sound odd, but it isn't. The brewery was set up by British capital in the 1800's to service British planters and other Britons resident in what was then Ceylon. The brewery just carried on, basically making the same 1870's-type London stout into this modern world of today.

    I blended them to get what I felt was the best out of both.
