    What Beer Are You Drinking? Summer '13

    Oskar Blues Gubna Imperial IPA… not the best DIPA I've had, but pretty good.

    Hof ten Dormaal barrel aged series. 2013 dark ale aged in Sauternes barrels.

    I wish a widely distributed American brewery would try this. Same beer aged in different type of casks. A barleywine or imperial stout would be obvious choices. Scotch ales take to wood well too.

    What did you think of it? I have five of them (2013 Sherry, Port, Sauternes and No. 10 Madeira/No. 12 Armagnac that are also Dark Ales but don't say 2013 for some reason) but haven't tried them yet.

    Spendy little suckers though!
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    I have only tried a few. The cognac dark is very good. The Sauternes has just a faint barrel influence. I tried the ardbeg at a bar and it was not very good. I haven't had a peated scotch barrel beer that I enjoyed yet.

    We have 11 of them now. 5 blonde ales and 6 dark. I am curious about the grappa. Might be the next purchase.

    I am drinking my last Westbrook IPA while grilling some hot dogs for the kids.

    Sweetwater LowRYEder IPA. Not bad. Used to drink Sweetwater all the time 10 years ago when I lived in the ATL, but it's just made its way to the Lexington market.

    And now a Crooked Stave Hopsavant. Wow. This is one of the weirder ales I've ever had. Funky fresh. Literally. Musty nose of some serious aged cheese and mushrooms, and then loads of tart citrus on the palate. Delicious stuff.

    Don't have access to the lighter colored boxes on the left. Only the six darker boxes. The only one I did not get was the Grappa so curious what you think.

    Is the Cognac barrel among the lighter boxes? I did not see it among the darker blue boxes I have access to, just Armagnac.

    I recall most of the options from the first series were blond ales not dark ales.

    The ones on left are blond. Cognac aged is available in both blond and dark.

    I have not had any of the blond versions.

    Drinking a woot stout from stone now. Solid brew.
