The beer of the night is a High Water "Campfire Stout", 22oz. 6.5%ABV
Tastes amazingly like smores. Sounds crazy, but it's actually not bad.

I just split a 5g batch between kegs and bottles of a hard cider/roasty porter hybrid this weekend, plus bottled 5g of my lightweight saison.

Give me 2 weeks and I'll be complaining about the next 10g I need to bottle.

Founder's Breakfast Stout.



I wanted this to be better than it was. It wasn't bad. In fact, it was great. But it was 9/10, when I was expecting 10/10. Needed more coffee, more chocolate, more oatmeal... more everything. It feels like it was only 90% of what it needed to be. They need to just take the recipe and crank it up to eleven.

Picked up some FM 966, a saison by Shiner.

It's the first saison I can recall having that was specifically referred to as such. I'm no expert, so maybe I've had others without knowing it.

I'd call the flavor a blend of an IPA with some of hoppiness replaced by the more earthy, and spicy tastes. Not a bad combination. There was a little bit there that reminded me of some pilsners.

I don't have a picture, but this one from ol' google does the job.



Not bad for something I can pick up at Publix.

Ah, I miss Publix. The prices were too high, and the crowd was too old, but it'll always hold a special place in my heart.

Now this turned out to be a very good beer:



It's big, it's bold, it's rich, and it's surprisingly hoppy. But it works well.

Only one left here aaaaand now you've made me want to finish it off. I loved it since I'm weary of not chocolatey/not coffee-y enough stouts as of late. It filled that gap in my soul. But then I must ask, what is your 10/10 choc-coffee stout Joe?


And I highly recommend the Sweet Water IPA. It has an exceptional grapefruit hoppiness that I look for and it isnt bitter. So even if you don't usually like IPAs try this one out.

If you are trying things like Sapporo, try Asahi. It's parent company is Sumitomo, the company that manufactures electronic devices and machinery.

I used to get Asahi "super dry" at a local sushi bar, but I think it got bought by white people because they don't have any Japanese beer anymore.
There is a Kirin beer I've found I like as well, not sure which one though.

Highland Oatmeal Porter.



It's only sold in stores around here in the southeast U.S. (AFAIK), but it's one of my favorites. Based out of Asheville, NC.

You have all the classic flavors you'd expect, roasted chocolate, coffee, malt, and even some caramel. Plus this stuff is very, very smooth.

Pretty much my feelings as well. There are plenty of stouts that take it to 11, but breakfast stout is in that perfect 9.5/10 spot where I can drink it all night (or until the 8.3% abv finishes me.)

Also, for the pumpkin beer fans, a 60/40 mix of Breakfast Stout and Southern Tier Pumking is KILLER.

I love their Gaelic Ale, which is a great red ale. I haven't tried the porter yet but I will. We can get it here in Florida.

I'm also a fan of their ale. I'm fortunate because there's a few places around here that keep the porter on tap.
