    Depending on what's around you (Bevmo/Total Wine/other), they may be pretty easy to find. The first ones I tried were from Schlenkerla. You can find the marzen, urbock, and dopplebock. IMO, the dopplebock was the best as the smokiness was a bit more tame. With the marzen and urbock the smokiness is quite intense and can be overwhelming for most. Stone Smoked Porter is widely available and I remember it being good, but that was a while ago. Alaskan Smoked Porter is a seasonal that should still be on shelves and is quite good.

    I've kind of grown a bit tired of the style, as most smoked beers I've had will assault you with their smokiness. And it makes you wonder if all they did was dump some liquid smoke into the brew kettle. Not really a smoked beer, but one of the best I've had was Ommegang Cup O Kyndnes which is a belgian style scotch ale that I believe they lightly smoked with peat like scotch. That beer had a lot going on and the smokiness was a nice underlying base without completely overtaking everything else.

    I prefer to prevent getting tired of such and such style by often switching up on the different types of beers. which is probably why I have many different beers in the closet and the fridge readily available.

    I saw one of the BA Black Betty Imperial Stouts at Total Wine for 26 bucks I think it was. Just cant drop that much for a beer anymore that I have no idea is worth it or not. Black Tuesday I'll pump out 30 for a bottle without question.

    There's still quite a lot of brews to explore without dropping so much cash. Plenty of regular release stuff and the average sixer price I see is about $11. I like Chimay, but honestly I think their beers are a tad overrated. Just my opinion.

    Though I disagree to a degree on Chimay, I agree 100% on what you say. There are a TON of great beers out there for $12 a six pack (or less). We are smack dab in the middle of the best era to experience outstanding beers in a variety of styles and/or flavors at fairly reasonable prices from all over the world. It's never been as good as it is right now. Hopefully it only gets better. And if it doesn't, I'll just make more homebrew!

    Along these lines...Again, both Sam and Jim entirely failed to address the real issue. I have problems with both brewers in that most of their "unusual" beers do absolutely suck and should have never made it to market. And that has nothing to do with how big they are. But what would you expect from marketing guys turned "brewers" but shuck and jive?

    What is it about Black Tuesday that I'm missing? I don't see the hype? I have a few bottles...but they will be all for trade now.

    I am finding most enjoyment these days in 12%ABV + beers, even more so if they are barrel aged. Black Tuesday is around 18%, but so drinkable because it certainly is not that strong in the taste. The chocolate, bourbon, and caramel blend so nicely and creates an imperial stout to me that is out of this world. I cant get enough of it!

    Its not as hyped as it was the first year, because The Bruery is producing more each year which diminishes much of the hype. I think thats a great thing and makes it available to more consumers.
