Haha! The brews in question are made by Founders. That's the only hint I will give for now.

I'm a firm believer that Keystone Light is an acceptable breakfast food due to its cereal-like taste. 9 a.m. going wild with the brewz 'cause I have no responsibility.

I had keystone light all last week, I was diggin it. Always smooth. I shoulda dressed up as Keith Stone for Halloween.
Here's my quote of the day:

"Keystone light is a crafty brew that goes well accompanied with ritz crackers stacked with pepper Jack cheese and sardines in hot sauce."

I picked up this black lager by riding my 36" uni to the corner store. The clerk had never seen a unicycle before outside of TV. Lol.

I'll have some on Saturday. It's the Gf's 21'st birthday party.

I would recommend Porter or Black and Tan if you decide to try any Yuengling products.

This week has been good so far. Back in the USSA (West Palm Beach) and have hit the Yard House a couple of times. Gulden Draak and St. Bernardus Abt 12 are our friend.

No idea, but I can read that it's brewed with licorice and molasses. It sounds so delicious, my mouth is watering right now.

Deschutes Brewery: The Abyss Is amazing stuff, one of my favorite Impy Stouts after that bottle for sure. it was a 2008 reserve but I've been told that all years are equally as delicious. Should be fairly easy to track down in the States. Brewed in Oregon FWIW so easier on the west coast I would imagine.

Glad to see it was a 2008 vintage... My 2009 I got in a trade was infected. :( Have a 2008 in my cellar though. Sorry for the delay... I've been BUSY at work lately.

RJ Rockers Bourbon Oak Bell Ringer: B+
"White oak chips soaked in Maker's Mark Bourbon. Had at the brewery during one of their taste and tour events. Served from firkin into an RJ Rockers shaker. Poured orange with a minimal white head. Maintained decent lacing throughout. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wood chips, and a very slight bourbon note. The flavor was of sweet malt, wood, nutty, and a very slight bourbon on the followthrough. It had a light feel on the palate with low carbonation. Overall this was a pretty nice brew. The white oak and bourbon aspect of this one definitely added a very nice flavor and aroma to the regular Bell Ringer and helps to bring all of the flavors together much better. This one is a definite must try if they brew it again."


Olde Hickory/Duck-Rabbit/Foothils Olde Rabbit's Foot 2010: A-
"Served from tap at the ORF '10 release party into a Foothills pilsner. Poured pitch black with a hint of red when held in the light with a one finger tan head. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of slightly roasted malt, sweet malt, and alcohol. The flavor was of roasted malt, alcohol, and cream. It had a medium feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a very good and well balanced brew. The aroma and flavors on this one were very nice to put it lightly. Glad I got the chance to drink this one on tap. A must try for any stout fan out there."


Foothills Sexual Chocolate: A+
"2010 Vintage. Served from tap at the brewpub into a Foothills pilsner. Poured pitch black with a hint of brown when held up in the light with a minimal light tan head. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of roasted malt, chocolate, and subtle alcohol. The flavor was of roasted malt, chocolate, and cream. It had a heavy feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this is quite the excellent brew. This one has a lot of hype surrounding it, even outside of the beer community for good reason. There is not very much missing in either the aroma or flavor in it. This is a definite must try if you can get your hands on it."

Founder Black Biscuit: A
"Served from tap into a goblet at the Founders event at Duckworth's in Charlotte. Poured black as sin with a minimal light light tan head. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of roasted malt, bourbon, and chocolate. The flavor was comprised of sweet malt, roasted malt, chocolate, molasses, slight vanilla, and bourbon (this wasn't barrel aged!? WHA!?!?!?). It had an extremely heavy (almost syrupy) feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this one was QUITE excellent and probably my second favorite brew of the event (CBS being #1). The flavors in this one were very nicely balanced and I was surprised that this one wasn't barrel aged as the flavor would make you think otherwise. It did take a good bit of warming up for the aroma to make its way through though, but once it did it was quite nice as well. The heavy mouthfeel was almost a turn-off for me, but the mild carbonation helps to break it up and make it quite drinkable. Big thanks to Duckworth's for giving me the opportunity to try this one!"


Founder Canadian Breakfast Stout: A+
"Served from tap into a goblet at the Founders event at Duckworth's. Poured pitch black with a minimal tan head. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of roasted malt, smoke, wood, molasses, and slight alcohol. The flavor was comprised of sweet malt, roasted malt, coffee, alcohol, and a smokey note on the followthrough. It had a heavy creamy feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this beer blew me away. This might be one of the better Imperial Stouts I've had to date. I loved how the mouthfeel on this one was both heavy and creamy at the same time making is scarely drinkable. This brew had an awesomely well balanced flavor and nice aroma to boot. Seriously, what else could you want in a beer? This is a must try if you have never had it before and if you have and are like me, you want MORE!"


Founder Kentucky Breakfast Stout: A
"Served from tap into a goblet at the Founders event at Duckworth's. Poured a deep dark brown basically black with a minimal tan head. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of roasted malt, bourbon, brown sugar, and molasses. The flavor was of roasted malt, spices, bourbon, and molasses. It had a medium feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this is and always will be quite an excellent brew. This one that we had could use a little age on it to help mellow out the bourbon flavor some as it was quite hot. Still great regardless of this fact with a pretty awesome flavor and nice aroma to go along with it. Glad I got to try this one on tap."


Founder Backwoods Bastard: A-
"Served from tap into a goblet at the Founders event at Duckworth's. Poured reddish-brown with a minimal off-white head. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt and bourbon. The flavor was of sweet malt, alcohol, and syrup. It had a medium feel on the palate with light to mild carbonation. Overall this one was very nicely balanced with a nice flavor. The aroma on this one was quite nice as well. Probably one of my favorite Scotch Ales to date. It is also crazy drinkable to weigh in at 10.2%..."


Founder Nemesis 2009: A-
"Big thanks to cpetrone84 and Exiled for the chance to have multiple bottles of this one that were sent to me as extras in past trades! Served from bottle into a Delerium Tremens snifter. Poured a very hazy yellow-orange with a minimal off-white head. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of massively sweet malt, good vodka, and molasses. The flavor was of sweet malt, alcohol, molasses, and sugar. It had a heavy feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a very nice brew. However, the booze on this thing was quite intense even with a year of age on it. To put it lightly this thing will lay a BEATING on your liver without a doubt. The sweetness aspect with the sugar on the followthrough helps to cut through the alcohol though. Has a good aroma, but despite smelling vodka (should have been my first hint), it didn't prepare me of the alcohol flavor I was about to experience. Should be great in another year or two without doubt."


Founder Nemesis 2010: A-
"Served from tap into a goblet at the Founders event at Duckworth's. Poured deep dark brown almost black with a minimal off-white head. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of slightly roasted malt, sweet malt, and slight hops. The flavor was of sweet malt, alcohol, dark fruit, and slight hops. It had a medium feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a nice brew. I could see this one aging pretty well over the next year or so. It had a nice flavor and good aroma to it. I have a few bottles that I will be aging after having this one on-tap for sure."

Cigar City Cubano Espresso Maduro Oatmeal Brown Ale: A+
"Served from tap into a Dogfish Head stout glass, enjoyed with JackTheBear on a recent trip to Athens, GA. Poured a deep dark brown with a one finger tan head. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of BIG espresso, coffee, and cream. The flavor was of roasted malt, espresso, coffee beans, cream, and chocolate. It had a medium-heavy feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this brew was quite excellent. Since I personally don't drink coffee, I could see this as being a damn fine substitute. Had an excellent aroma and flavor on this one. Very well balanced even for a non-coffee drinker. The aroma was almost intoxicating it was so rich. Also it went down nice and smooth leaving you craving more. Very nice brew CCB!"

I will have to see if the Founders stuff is available at my local stores. I don't believe I've had any of their brews before.

Last night I had a Full Sail Sanctuary, Belgian style dubbel. Not bad, had a nice foundation of malt and had some fruity estery elements, but lacked some of the funk that I usually associate with the style. It did kind of taste like an American attempt to brew a Belgian, though it was pretty decent overall.

Scott, out of the ones from Founders I listed you should be able to find Backwoods Bastard and Nemesis 2010. If you are VERY lucky, maybe Kentucky Breakfast Stout. The Nemesis 2009 has been on the shelves for over a year and is rare to see around anymore. The others are pretty rare (especially Black Biscuit) and are served on-tap only unfortunately. :(
