Nothing but Backwoods Bastard for me come winter time. It is powerful but has a high drinkability for a bourbon aged beer. Had one with dinner and one for dessert.
Had a Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout yesterday. Very enjoyable but would benefit from some age in the cellar IMHO.

Jackie O's dinner tonight. Pale Ale, saison, Berliner Weisse, DIPA Zythos, and Bourbon Barrel Dark Apparition. All were good, Berliner Weisse and RIS were stellar!
Drank a can of Threadless IPA from Finch's Beer Company (Chicago) last night. At 90 IBU's, this beer packs a fairly serious hop wallop which was pleasant enough but struck me as one dimensional compared to the Half Acre Daisy Cutter that followed. The latter was mighty fine and will be a regular, that's for sure. On to Wild Onion's Hop Slayer Double IPA tonight which I don't believe I've ever had before.

Picked up a single Arcadia Bourbon Barrel Cereal Killer Barleywine today. Like the standard Cereal Killer, so I'll find out what this is all about here in a bit.
