Agreed. Nice taste at first but hard to drink a whole bottle.

I am enjoying Trader Joe's Winterfest now. Great toasty flavor. Just don't serve too cold.

Had Dogfish Head Chickory Stout on tap last night at Beachwood BBQ. Great stuff! Need to go back this weekend if they have it again. Also had a pint of Pliny the Elder.
Tried the Pursuit of Hopiness wiht psychopuck on Saturday night. Nice combo of hops.
Also tried the AssKisser double IPA. Incredible beer! Was suprised at the malt in it as I was only expecting a hoppy flavor. Need to buy more.

Hit Beachwood BBQ up for their Winter Brews week. Had Alesmith's Yulesmith out of the cask. Great beer nice hop finish. Followed that with a Speedway Stout that as aged in Whiskey barrels. The Whiskey was a little strong otherwise, it was good.
Hit BevMo after that and got two 6ers of Dogfish Head Chickory Stout and a 6er of Velvet Merlin.

Jeeze. Everytime I read one of your beer posts, I think to myself "Mitch is the man".

Went to a beer tasting on Friday night that featured some HTF beers. For me, GI Bourbon Co. Vanilla Stout stole the show. Smacks you in the jaw with full on vanilla and then settles into a boozy, bourbon alcohol taste and then smooths out at the finish. Heavenly. Darklord was excellent, however to my newbie tastebuds it tasted very similar to Old Rasputin, and since OR is MUCH easier to find, I wasn't too impressed. Other beers were tasted but I either can't remember their names or they didn't make too much of an impression on me.
Yesterday had a bottle of Blue Point American Pale Ale. Good stuff! Not as hoppy as I was expecting, but smooth and balanced and would probably make a good session beer.

Some friends came over yesterday and gave some nice treats. got Chimay (Blue) good stuff. Also got a nice goblet to add to my drink ware. finally, I got a 6er of Victory Golden Monkey. I''ve got lots of beer here.
Had the Chicory Stout I mentioned a few posts ago at a party on Saturday. Good stuff as always. Also cracked open a bottle of the Velvet Merlin. A nice upgrade over and Alaskan Oatmeal Stout. Good Stuff.
