I didn't like Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout. It was harsh and somewhat one dimensional.

I just got back from a three day business trip to the Bahamas where I made a nice discovery.



This stuff is very good. It is new to the market. It is not bitter or harsh but still has plenty of rich flavor. It has the little bit of chocolaty malty sweetness added to smooth it out nicely. It is lighter than Old Rasputin but not by a bunch. It is worth searching for. http://www.bahamianbrewery.com/beer-strong-back.htm

Great ****, especially on tap. Love it. There is a place here in SA that keeps it on tap and that is the first thing I order when I get there.

The day of our big snow clusterfuck here, i left work 2 hours early and got home after 2 hours of driving (normally 20 mins)... wife and I walked out in the snowstorm and got pizza and beer and then saw that the beergarden was open in the snow and had fires blazing outside.

Well imagine my bad planning when I ended up having two 10% beers and getting a third "normal strength" beer on a school night without considering the ramifications.

oops.

I posted the pic two pages ago I guess.

The Yardhouse at La Cantera. They are a bit on the pricey side compared to the Saucer but they have the biggest tap selection in town from what I have seen. It is a nice place too. Trios Pistoles is a regular beer there, and they also have St. Bernardus ABT 12 on tap, which is also excellent.

If you get there between 4 and 6 on weekdays for happy hour the beer is significantly cheaper.

Here is their tap list

I went to a local Irish pub today where they have a bunch of greatness on draught. I drank a Founders Breakfast Stout. I wasn't too impressed with it as it is a Double Chocolate Coffee Oatmeal Stout, and because of that, it was an overwealming mix of different flavors. It actually tasted like it belongs at IHOP to be served on top of pancakes.
Then I drank what I just made the #1 on my Stout List.
Youngs Double Chocolate Stout.
Holy Crap this stuff is good.
It was served on Nitrogen and had a similar head of Guinness (which is cause of the Nitrogen). It was exceptionally smooth and didn't have a Cocoa chocolate taste, but rather a smooth mild chocoloate milk like taste. This is by far the best Stout I have ever drank, and I strongly suggest anyone who enjoys dark beer to try one A.S.A.P.

Just got back from County Kerry Ireland. I'll never look at an "Irish Pub" the same again. God I love that place, wanna go back already. Oh well, next adventure - Afghanistan.

Did you make it to Dublin? I posted some recommendations in your thread. Where specifically in Kerry? Did you make it out to Dingle to meet Fungi? Did people in sweet JDM cars cruise through Killarney at night? Did you meet any hot women from Tralee?

Nope. Stayed in Dingle went pretty much everywhere else in Kerry at some point or another. Didn't waste the time to see a ****** fish with my tight schedule, maybe next time. Wasn't in Killarney at night but I did see a few nice cars over the weekend. Didn't spend too much time in Tralee but from what I saw I wasn't any more impressed with the women there than anywhere else on the Peninsula.

Yuengling Bock Beer. It's out right now, and I said it once and I'll say it again. Yuengling Brewery is located in Pottsville, PA and they claim to be the oldest brewery in America. Most of their products are OK, but Yuengling Bock Beer is superb. Best case of beer for less than $20 I ever bought. It's a seasonal brew, so get it while it lasts!!

Yuengling is a great cheap "drinking beer". It isn't incredible or anything, but it's easy to drink and very affordable. I'll have to check out their Bock.

I'm kind of a Sierra Nevada fan-boy mostly because it's one of the best beers that's easily acquired (cant wait til I turn 21 this fall, bullshit american laws...) The piney citrusy cascade hops in their pale ale really got me hooked and their Glissade "Golden Bock" that's out right now is pretty good as is their Tumbler.

I've really been trying to get a hold of some of their new beer, Hoptimum. It's relatively pricey, but it's a high ABV (10.4%) with 100 IBU using whole-cone hops. Apparently, it's a "new-school" style beer so it's very resinous and aromatic which kind of reminds their pale ale that I really like.

Lately I've been drinking SN Glissade and the Sam Adams "Noble Pils" (which is a czech-style pilsner) and it's not bad at all, but I ordered a few 6 packs of Victory Brewing's Prima Pils and I feel like that is how beer should taste. I was very happy with it.
