    Doug, it's Ten Commandments (aged in bourbon barrels), Gift of the Magi (aged in French oak barrels), and Serpent's Stout (aged in Port barrels).

    Not sure where you stand on sour beers (I love them and really enjoyed the Stone Sour Fest last summer), but it definitely has some elements of that, along with stout characteristics. My all time favorite beer is Lost Abbey's Angels Share, which is aged in either bourbon or brandy barrels (depending on year), so I like that part of it for sure. But you really get an interesting mix with the Port in there.

    I think it's kind of hard to explain, but you really know you're drinking something different.

    It sounds like something I would really enjoy. I'll be on the lookout.
    Mitch, I just spent a week in Seal Beach, and failed to make it to Beachwood once, to my sorrow. Love that place, and they always have something good on tap. Check out the Abbey on the other end of Main Street, between the two, you should be able to have almost anything you would like.

    Default Kings watch party with a Bottle Share

    Its pretty cool seeing all these posts about good beers. Just wondering if anyone would be interested in setting up a Kings Game watching party with a bottle share. Everyone brings a 22oz bottle, 750ml or 2-12oz bottles of some craft beer.
    I have plenty of good bottles to share.

    Oh yeah, I enjoyed 22 ounces of Ballast Point Sculpin and I'm about to crack another one open.

    I haven't, nor have I had any of the Sinners blends. To be honest, I have been utterly disappointed with the Lost Abbey's output over the last year and a half, with their inability to properly carbonate their beers. Tomme is a tremendous brewer with incredible capabilities, but until they fix their CO2 issues, I don't see myself spending another dime on their beer. I've probably spent over $100 over the last year on LA beers that were disappointing drain pours simply due to the absence of carbonation.

    You have to be in the club to get the Sinners blend, right? Unless of course, you trade for it or something.

    Went to The Bruery's Reserve Society event Saturday. What a night! Some highlights: Partridge in a Pear Tree, 3 different Papiers (1 each aged in Bourbon barrels, Brandy, Rye), the new Oude Du Tart, Autumn Maple, Mischief, Two Turtle Doves, Rugbrod, plus many others I can't remember right now. I didn't stick around to get any Black Tuesday as the crowd was in line for that an hour early.

    I was there too! Were you at session 1 or 2 ?

    It was amazing! All the free beer you could drink, and all the Beachwood BBQ food you could eat! The folks at The Bruery really went out for this! The highlight for me was the BA Papiers, with the Brandy being my favorite. I wasn't huge on the rye version, but the whiskey barrel was really damn good. The Dirty Beaver Juice Weekend was what I sipped on the most, and the Oude Tart is absolutely spectacular! I picked up 2 bottles of Mischief to take home, as I was really fond of that one and regret only leaving with 2 of them. Oh well. I've got 5 Oude Tarts at home to keep me busy for a while

    I wanted to go to the Bruery event but didn't get paid in time to become a member. The Oude Tart sounds awesome. You guys try the chocolate bacon?

    I love Lost Abbey beers. Yeah some of their beers are flat but their sours are amazing. Yellow Bus, Cable Car, Isabelle Proximus, Red Poppy, Cuvee de Tomme, Duck Duck Gooze and KT.

    I've had Sinner's Blend without being a sinner.
    Once with Ratebeer summer gathering and at a couple other beer tastings that friends shared it with me.
