Wow, just wow.

It sounds so bizarre, but it was like I was eating an awesome curry dish, or I should have been, while I drank this. I wouldn't buy more than one or two, but it's definitely worth trying, especially of your into Indian cuisine.

Ballast point makes amazing beer. I recently had "Pumpkin Down" from them which is a pumpkin / scotch ale. Southern Tier Pumking was always pretty high up, possibly number 1 on my pumpkin ale list, but the ballast point selection might've just bumped it for me.
Anybody else care to agree?

Last night I went to an impromptu beer tasting at a buddy's house. We had:


Heady Topper - Good, but hardly the best IPA I've ever had; I really don't see how this can be "the best IPA in the world"

Stone Enjoy By Halloween IPA - This Enjoy By was a little weird. It was kind of dry and spicy with more of a pepper flavor than normal. Usually Enjoy By is much sweeter and more malty. I was disappoint.

Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA - I had never had 90 Minute before. It was strong. Pretty excellent, all around.

DFH 120 Minute IPA - Even more strong than 90 minute. Sweet, rich, malty, hoppy, beery, as much alcohol as a weak liquor... slightly overwhelming. The final effect is really just more everything than 90 Minute. I like it.

The Brewery Black Tuesday Stout - The DFH 120 Minute of stouts. This is what I expect when I pour a stout. They look like a thick, creamy, desert, but typical stouts (Guinness, Boddington's) just taste like bitter, thin coffee (and swamp water). Black Tuesday is thick, strong, and excellent. The alcohol flavor is a little overwhelming, but it plays well with the other strong flavors.

Ray Clovere Brewing Company Sour and RCBC Most Honorable By IPA - RCBC is a buddy's startup brewery. The Sour tasted like a Warhead. I don't like sours, and this one was POWERFULLY sour. Apparently Sours are the next IPA, but I think they're gross. Most Honorable By started life as a Stone Enjoy By clone that has evolved over time. It is sweet and malty, and exceptional. My favorite type of beer.



Other than Heady Topper, the RCBC Most Honorable By, and possibly DFH 90 minute, you wouldn't want to drink more than one (maybe half of one) of any of these. They're all exceptionally powerful beers. They're all pretty excellent, though. Beer makes me happy. I was pleased with this experience.

I wouldn't call Guinness a "typical" stout. It's a light beer for christs sake.

^ I was thinking this as well.

I have tried to put together a beer tasting before, but not enough people I know are craft beer drinkers for some reason

My beer nerd hat wants to explain the difference between a "dry" and a "sweet" stout, but I'm pretty sure no one wants to hear it. I'll just leave this here: BJCP 2008 Style Guidelines - Category 13

Though its not like most of these craft guys are following any kind of style guidelines anymore.

I was just saying "typical" in there are so many damn varieties, sub-varieties, etc now that I'm not sure what'd you call "typical."

Definitely the most recognizable thought. I usually only drink it anymore if I want something to go with my Jameson.

When you say "stout" (or porter, for that matter), the layman hears "Guinness". Thus it is THE typical stout.

"Oh, no Guiness for me. I don't like dark beers, they are to heavy."

I work like across the street from red hook now, and they're having their NH brewfest tomorrow. $30 for like 3 hours. Probably too lazy to go.

I have a belgian stout that's about to finish. Based on gravity readings I'm expecting somewhere in the 8-9% range. It's as dark as used motor oil.

You have inspired me. I think I will brew a curry saison or IPA next. I think a 5 minute addition of a few ounces of garam masala, a few ounces of curry and a few ounces of hot peppers should be awesome.

Bells is available in Florida, right? I wonder how many of these I can fit in my suitcase for the return trip
