    Had a Firestone Walker Black Xantus on tap last weekend in Santa Barbara. Black Imperial Stout aged in bourbon barrels. Very limited run. They did one keg for Union Alehouse. It was $18 for a half pint. Bourbon and coffee with a hint of cherry.

    LOL nice one AZ!

    I’d done a little research about Partridge in a Pear Tree, and was truly amazed by the beer scholarship out there.

    “The bourbon is ever so forthcoming as the fruit and syrupy counterparts ambush the palate only as the bourbon begins to etiolate,” someone named azagthoth rhapsodized on beeradvocate.com. “The butterscotch and toffee sanction the back end of the sip while leaving you absolutely enthralled.”

    If you can interpret what azagthoth said, please let me know.

    Black Xantus was quite a let down IMO.

    Oh ****! I'll have to e-mail this guy, as that was indeed my review BUT he took it from my Barrel Aged Partridge In A Pear Tree review (hence me mentioning bourbon) and not the regular version of Partridge In A Pear Tree. No wonder the guy was thrown off, haha!

    Jeeze, I only wrote that review on the beer a few days back. That was quick!

    Ha, another all-time holiday favorite. I haven't seen it in stores up here yet. I'll have to take a run to Sandy's in SLO later today to see if they got any. I always love the Anchor Holiday brew as a counter to the massive quantities of SN Celebration I drink. The malty spiciness of the Anchor is ALWAYS very satisfying on a cold night sitting by the fire. Always. When I get back I'll post any of the other holiday brews that I find.

    Had a few new ones (to me) last night at a bar. Unibroue Chambly Blonde (I think the name was). White ale, very nice. Good flavor and spice without beating me over the head with intense spice the way many others of this style do. Unibroue Chambly Noir, quite nice, dark, and flavorful. I liked! And to top it off, Belhaven Scottish style Ale. Bliss in a glass! MMmmmmmm!

    I'm heading to Pittsburgh next week and plan to check out a few brews that I don't find out here. I noticed several of the restaurants serve beers from Great Lakes. In particular I've noticed the Elliot Ness and the Burning River. Anyone here try them? Suggestions on other beers from Eastern based breweries?
