Speakeasy limited series Butchertown black ale. This is pretty good very dark very flavorful very smooth beer.
went great with my prosciutto and coppa sandwich with swiss cheese on sourdough.

Firestone Walker makes some really tasty brews. Their anniversary beers have all been AWESOME in my experience.

Well since you guys made such a stink about the cappuccino stout I had to go out and get one even though I don't like stouts . Then I saw the bells and had to get a variety of that too. Got some of the winter solstice which the wife really loved and the Noel which is a holiday classic for us. Now if we can drink it all it will definitely be a happy new year.

As far as Bells products, the Expedition Stout is my favorite stout.
Y8s...just by looking at that "imperial stout" I am dissapoint.
1) For an "Imperial" it's only 7.85%.
2) Look at the head on it. It looks like Pabst Blue Ribbon tapped on CO2.
3) Pabst Blue Ribbon is delicious and enjoy your son's first new year!

I was surprised it was under 10% too.

But the flavor is solid. Maybe it's not creamy like a guiness, but it's a good beer.

It shouldn't be creamy like Guinness, unless it's tapped on Nitrogen. No stout should ever be compared to Guinness. Not that Guinness is "superior" to other stouts, it's just other stouts have things that Guinness lacks....alcohol and flavoring such as "oak barrel aging" and many more.

I don't think regular Guinness is actually classified as a stout. They do make a stout, but the regular stuff isn't it.

<hungover beer nerd rant>

It kinda bugs me that Guinness has become "the" commercial example of a "stout." Back in the 1800's in the UK "stout" was an adjective used to describe a porter. Kinda like calling a beer a "robust" instead of a "robust porter." Ie: porter, single stout porter, double stout porter, export stout porter... you get the idea. As you go up the ladder, bigger versions have more hops bittering and higher gravity. Export versions were monstrosities that had to survive extended shipping times in unfavorable conditions (see Baltic Porter) thus Export grade beer would kinda be like the Imperialized versions of beers we enjoy today. A "stout porter" would almost be like a "mild" version of porter, very much on the low end. I can almost guarantee that most of you beer nerds have had a proper English Mild

Guinness is impressive in its consistency and volume of production with such low hop and alcohol rates (both are preservatives) but there are certainly better "stouts" out there. Doesn't stop me from drinking Guiness though.

I'm not sure what you all are thinking I'm saying Guinness is or is not, but EVERYONE knows what a guinness is and can use it as a basis of comparison in terms of its obvious features.

I never intended to say it was the end all be all of stouts.

Just cracked this open- 2010 Infinium. Comes from Boston Beer Works and has been aging in the refridgerator for what might be almost 2 years lol. Says it should have been enjoyed before July 2011...and we just opened it for today. It's a champainge-like beer with fine bubbles and a light, slightly sweet flavor. It's pretty good.




...as for the rest of the stash in the house...

(more to the right that cannot be seen)







Yeah, the 'fridge is nearly empty except for alcohol. Notice the drawers and the top of the 'fridge. And this is after consuming a fair number of beer in the past week lol. The 4 growlers are Southrn Tier Pumpking (which there are 12 of in the cabinet along with a bunch of Creme Bruele, Mokah and Choclat...and a few other mixed in stouts and porters....and cider.

I might have access to a few bombers of this:
5 Golden Rings - The Bruery - Placentia, CA - BeerAdvocate
Anybody have it or hear of it? Looks pricy but super rare.

Most of the Christmas series by them isn't really that rare as it does see a good bit of distro... Haven't personally had it. I was in their Reserve Society up until this year, so I was guaranteed a bottle. Guess I will be buying/trading for one this year. The barrel aged version is the rare one as it is only available to the Reserve Society members.
