    Default Bahl Hornin' Imperial Boont Amber Ale

    I had 2 pints of this VERY FINE brew from Anderson Valley yesterday afternoon. I would highly recommend this one if you're looking for a malty, high gravity ale. It has a beautiful amber color and creamy head when drawn from the tap. The nose is malt, malt, malt, with some caramel and a bit of alcohol. Very smooth mouth-feel and it goes down very easily. It's one of those ales that you can get in trouble with very quickly as the 9% doesn't hit the palate whatsoever. Tasty caramel, toffee, honey, some grape-y/raisin-y notes. Just a wonderful, full bodied ale. I highly recommend grabbing this if you can find it. The Pour House in Paso Robles has it on tap right now. I'll have another one today after work.

    Had the 10-10-10 from the bottle for the first time. Tasted the grapes and fruitiness. Interesting, when I tasted it on tap, I mostly noticed the yeast. Great complex beer.

    Try and find it. It's really an outstanding beer imo. It's that time of year where I crave heavier, lots of flavor beers. More malt than hops. It fits the bill in a big way.

    Had the new Bruery RS beers over the weekend. The Gunga Galunga was my favorite. It's almost stout-like in appearance, and has the roast to go along with it. Roasted like a mother actually! The kaffir lime sounds odd but it works nicely with this beer. Med-heavy bodied, and easy to put down....I could have finished two with no problem. The carbonation was great, too.

    Provisions Series Premiere is a belgian strong pale aged in bourbon barrels. Lots of complexity going on with this one, and I should have taken notes so I could pinpoint some specifics. I would give it an A though, and was easy as **** to put down at 10%. If you like barrel aged beers and BSPA's, find this one!

    The 100% barrel fermented Autumn Maple was nice despite the lack of carbonation. It is among the spiciest beers I have ever tasted! Nicely done in that regard. I would take the Barrel Aged Autumn Maple (released last fall) over the barrel fermented version, but I still have 2 left and will drink them without hesitation.

    Joining and renewing the Reserve Society was one of my best decisions. All of these special releases have been phenomenal! Melange No. 3, Barrel Aged Coton, Black Tuesday, Barrel Aged Partridge In A Pear Tree, Gunga Galunga, BA Autumn Maple, - ok I am thirsty now

    What sort of spice notes are in the Autumn Maple? That sounds like a great sitting by the fire reading a good book beer. Well, so does the BSPA! Gotta look for those around here.

    Cinnamon and clove!

    Not spicy, but the yams are very prevalent in this beer and are much fitting for Thanksgiving or sitting by the fire!

    Cost Plus World Market is another option.

    Had a bottle of Victory Baltic Thunder last night. Pretty good stuff. On the label it referred to the beer as a dark lager, yet it was a porter. Don't know how that works, but regardless it was very much like a porter without the creamy maltiness that I had expected. Dark color with the typical roasted malts/chocolate/coffee tones but a less viscous and thinner body. Good stuff.
