Alaskan pumpkin porter, only complaint is its easy to drink so the bottle doesn't last long.

Just tasted a new experiment I kegged a week ago. An attempt to mix a Rochefort 8 and a Kwak. Basically using up leftover malt, a Rochefort yeast, challenger hops and some licorice. I think i did it. 8.5%, but easy drinking. Happy..

One of the very best I've ever had.

Just drinking my first two ever.

Everything from Bayern is excellent. A brewer you can absolutely trust to deliver excellent beer.

Damn. I wonder if I could buy their stuff anywhere in Tennessee.

It's 8.4% ABV. I do like high ABV's.

Just tried Leinenkugel's Dopplebock tonight. It's their Spring Seasonal.

Not entirely true to a dopplebock in style, but I actually think it's better. Pretty good beer.

I enjoy stout beers, my favorites are now oatmeal stouts with not too much added coffee or cocoa. I'll be making some when schools stop. Anyone brew their beer here? Any good results with this kind of style?

Lebanese "craft" beer 961. Tastes like cat's piss with a healthy dose of propaganda on the bottle:

Born during the July 2006 siege on Lebanon...

Just sampled an oyster stout: Upside Oyster Stout outta Portland, OR. Made with real whole oysters.

Not bad at all. No distinct oyster taste.

They make a few of those around here. Some definitely more "oystery" than others.

As far as oysters, if you get a chance to try some fresh, the Willapa Bay Kumamoto and Netarts Bay oysters are pretty good.

Yes and yes. What would you like to know my child?

That thread has a ton of good award winning recipes. The forum is full of people with experience and wisdom to share. Basically, when I want to try making a new style of beer I just pull up an award winner in that style. Then you get to enjoy drinking it in about 6-12 weeks.

I've got a killer chocolate coffee stout recipe. If you want I can try and locate it. The only problem with this beer is that it doesn't get really really really good until about the 6 month mark. A lot of heavy and complex beers really need a few more months in the bottle to kind of clean up and mellow out. I drank a bottle of it on New Years and I think that batch was a little over a year old. Brought a tear to my eye it was so good.

Imagine the feeling of biting into a big juicy steak and eating your favorite dessert. Now combine those feelings and that's the drinking experience I had. Plus it was over 11% abv and you don't taste it at all.

There's also tons of oatmeal and milk stouts out there on the web. I feel like I need to give you a warning though. Brewing beer is VERY ADDICTIVE!!! It's a pretty cheap hobby and you'll end up making much better beer than you can buy. The problem I have is that I just don't drink that often.

So if I make 5 gallons of beer that'll be around for about a year or so. I end up giving most of my beer away. It's a great time to brew some beer outside with some friends when it starts getting cool. Drinking beer, grillin food, huddled around the propane burner. Nothing quite like drinking home brew while making home brew.

Fuck now I want to brew.

Motherlode Barley Wine from Last Frontier Brewing is some very good stuff. Then again I like barley wines. This one, like many, has a very high ABV of over 12%. Will smack you upside the head if you drink it on an empty stomach, especially.

How many of you like barley wines?
