    I was at the Bottle Room in Whittier on Sunday and the owner of The Bruery was there dressed as Santa. I got a pic I'll post the wife and I took with him.

    Anyway, I rocked a couple glasses of Three French Hens. Thick and dark with the consistency of molasses (ok, maybe not that thick but you get the idea). Big sweet open and a coffee finish. 10%+ alcohol. Two glasses down and the wife suddenly became the designated driver!

    Oh, and while I am on the subject of beer, Angel City Brewing is moving to downtown!

    http://la.eater.com/archives/2010/12..._next_year.php

    Right around the corner from Wurstkuche. Not like I needed yet another place with beer in the area I can walk to from home (going broke), but pretty stoked nonetheless!

    the Bruery Provisions is indeed the one in Oldtown Orange just north of the circle on Main street. Just a few doors down from that awesome grinder/soda shop.

    BP has a hell of a selection. Lots of rare stuff from Belgium, and other hard to find craft brews.

    Did Nogne 0 and Stone do a Pumpkin type of beer? Or are you thinking of the Stone/Nogne 0/Jolly Pumpkin collaboration?

    I've been so overwhelmed and impressed with many of the beers coming out of Norway. Nogne 0 and Haandbryggeriet have been cranking out some stuff on par with the best of the US.

    Hope you dig the Chimay Tripel. I still cant get over how good the Chimays are, even though they are readily available just about anywhere. Its really the 8th wonder of the world.

    The collaboration beer you mentioned is the one I picked up. Waiting to drink it on Xmas or Xmas Eve.

    Drinking the Chimay Tripel. Really good beer. Hint of sweetness and spices with that great yeast and malt flavor.

    Default Abita Vanilla Porter

    I have never had an Abita beer before and the Pour House had just tapped a keg of the Vanilla Porter. I love porter (love love love porter) so gave it a shot. I don't like neg reviewing beers but really, it was a glassful of meh. Plenty of vanilla - actually the vanilla overwhelms everything else. I guess if you like a big dose of vanilla in the nose and on the palate, but with little else going for it, you might like it. Beyond the vanilla it was thin and watery. I can't recommend even giving this one a taste if you find it.

    However, I did quickly recover by ordering a pint of Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout, which he also just put in tap. I love the Old Rasputin. It's one of the first "heavy" beers I fell in love with a LOOOOOONNNNGGGG time ago. Old Rasputin has everything I love in good beers - a beautiful nose, nice hefty body, a mouthful of flavors where you discover new tastes each sip - just a deep, dark brown/black of opaque goodness. Love it.

    Im with you on the Abita beers. They pretty much suck.

    Haven't had an Old Rasputin in years but always loved it.

    Just had the 2010 50/50 Eclipse Heaven Hill BA Imperial Stout. The Rye barrel compliments this stout so nicely! It's so warm, almost as if you were drinking hard alcohol but the stout characteristics kick in and are absolutely wonderful! It is definitely a slow sipper and one of the more challenging stouts I've put down.

    Now working on the Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary Grand Cru which I've had before. Absolutely stunning! Its the equivalent to Mitch in a santa suit and an Obejuan Elf accompanying me in a North Pole pour on Christmas Eve with Stormy to my side talking about how marvelous the experience is.
