A friend of mine picked up a couple of bottles for me, and I just enjoyed them about a week ago. I'm not a big Stout fan, but this was stomachable with a really nice aftertaste, not as bitter as I'm used too from Stouts. Good "buzz" with it too . . . after the two large bottles I was definately on the "happy" side of things.

Just remember that Barleywine is not for everyone. It's got more alcohol in it and it's way stronger and syrupier than normal beer. Numbskull is very good.

Another beer I tried recently was this beer from Ommegang Brewery:

I've had the other beers from Ommegang but haven't tried that one. I am not a fan of adding fruits or lambics into beer.

I'm not a big fan of lambics either, but this one is well blended and very complex. Doesn't hit you in the head with fruit flavor like many lambics. I came away very impressed. Similar to the Russian River Supplication Ale I bought at Hollingshead. The Ommegang is available at BevMo for anyone interested.

I went in search of Old Numbskull at my local BevMo and came away with this hot piece o' ass instead:
It's pretty much the epitome of a strong Belgian Ale. I'd highly recommend it to anyone into Belgian Ales. It had a small alc. kick similar to a barleywine style ale, and was awesome throughout. A tad pricey, but well worth it. I've also heard of Stumblin' Monk, also by Alesmith, and now have to explore that, as well as tracking down some of the Old Numbskull.

I was wondering if any of you have been to Naja's Place in Redondo

Finally tried this at Maurizio's in Glendale. They got in a test case on Friday morning and it was gone a half hour into Happy Hour. They already had a neon sign up for it, so I'm sure they'll be getting more. Was $6 for a 20oz bottle but well worth it, a very yummy brew!
