    Had the new SN Ruthless Rye IPA, spicy, hoppy, and tasty. Followed that with a Dark Horse Crooked Tree IPA, chewy hoppy goodness.

    I like that motor oil analogy. Given its comparative lightness, I'd say the Belgian-style version was more new oil fresh from the can!

    It would be interesting to try the versions alongside, I believe there are three (regular, oak-aged and Belgian-style).

    Sixpoint Righteous Rye - a bit light, but a great beer anyway. The first rye I've had that's true to itself and didn't try to merge the rye with some other flavor.

    Now for the Ruthless Rye, which of course DOES mix the rye with a strong hops presence, but it's hard to find fault with that, since it's such a fantastic beverage.

    Celebrating a little bit of a milestone this afternoon. My regular running schedule took a big hit in August when I developed a bad case of Plantar Fasciitis in my right foot. Hurt like heck. So, I really backed off my running (basically stopped) and began the tennis ball treatment. Anywho, began starting back several weeks ago, and today I finished my normal run without stopping to gag, heave, gasp, or fall over. It was slow, but no stopping. Yey me. So, I am rewarding myself with a Sweetwater Exodus Porter. Yummy. Truth be told, I would still be drinking this Exodus Porter had I stopped...again...to gag, heave, gasp, or fall over....but, it's the thought that counts...Drink up and celebrate the simple things!

    Right this minute, I'm drinking a Thirsty Dog "12 Dogs of Christmas Ale".

    First time I've had this. It's pretty tasty..... better than Great Lakes Christmas Ale, IMO.

    Yeti also comes in espresso oak-aged and barrel-aged versions. (The "oak-aged" ones spend some time with oak chips, v. actual barrel aging for the rather rare barrel-aged version.)

    Beer Advocate lists a few more types that I'm not familiar with -- Bretty, chocolate oak-aged and cocoa.

    Couple bottles from 3 Floyds tonight. First the Gumball Head Wheat, different than any wheat I've had...lots going on in this one. Next up one of my favorites from these guys, Robert the Bruce Scotch Ale. Just amazing!

    Bretty Yeti is TERRIBLE! I think they accidentally infected some kegs with brett and threw it out there as "bretty yeti" instead of throwing it away. I'm a die hard Yeti fan and its the only glass that I have ever poured out. I have never had a stout with brett that I could tolerate so I'm probably not the best judge on this one.

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

    I was able to secure a bottle of Bramble Rye Bourbon County Stout. I promptly stashed it at the back of my open bottle cabinet to hibernate for a few years, so no tasting notes yet. It was aged in rye whiskey barrels, although I can't seem to find info on whose rye barrels...

    I have a bottle of Bourbon County Stout from 2006 I've been holding on to that I'm going to try to open this weekend; I've got a cold, so I may have to put it off...

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

    On Wednesday, I had:

    Bell's GoldenRye Ale - bitter at first, turning to traditional dry rye as it warmed. A bit thin but pretty good.

    Bell's Rye Stout - delicious, a little cloying.

    Heavy Seas Below Decks Barlewine, aged in Bowman whiskey barrels (don't know which whiskey was in the barrels) - fruity, musty, definitely a niche beer. I've heard the 18 year Bowman was pretty fruity, as well. Is this a characteristic of the line?
