    I have a recommendation for a beer that is easy to drink and weighes in at 10.6% ABV. It's not the best beer you will ever have and will be a bit dull for hop-lovers. But at 10.6% it doesn't overpower you with an alcohol taste and is a darkish brown in color. Maybe I just have a special place for it on my palate because it is the beer served at the place I stay every year in Death Valley and it is quite cool to be out in the middle of nowhere with a strong beer keeping you company. You can find this beer at Whole Foods - Lobotomy Bock from Indian Wells Brewing. Try it if you want a lot of buzz in an easy to drink bock.

    I have had the Lobotomy Bock. it is ok although the 10.6% was a shocker. after two of those, I did have a bit of a trouble getting up from the chair.
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    I would second this. I'm not big on letting beers age. I prefer bold n hoppy balls to my beer, but the Stone IRS is an exception to my preference in that regard. For some reason, a year of aging does wonders to it.

    I had a couple new beers yesterday:

    Hofbrau Oktoberfest - I was surprised how much lighter in color and taste it was to their dunkel. More of an amber hue to it and a lighter taste than I was expecting. The only other Octoberfest beer I've had was a SA so I was expecting something a bit more intense in flavor. Still, for a nice beer with some "drinkability" I enjoyed it. It paired very well with a mild cigar I was smoking (Padilla Habana Torpedo) as neither overshadowed the other.

    Moylans Dry Irish Stout - Almost pitch black in color. Not as creamy as Guinness but with a much more robust flavor. It had an intriguing "berry" hint to it which I found pleasant. Not particularly strong at 5% but I was very pleased with this bottle. Paired with a stronger Partagas Black Label Bravo I got an aftertaste of coffee, caramel, and very delicious dark chocolate.

    Mountain High IPA, brought to you by Mt. Shasta Brewery, well known for their successful court battle over the Weed label:



    MSBC is in Weed, CA, of course.

    and this IPA is pretty good. remember, there is stuff at the bottom. so, it is best poured in a glass, carefully.

    from Vendome Liquor in Toluca Lake.
