    What's everyone drinking for the Super Bowl? I have Avery 14'er ESB which is a rare session beer both for me and the brewery.
    I got a case of Spaten Oktoberfest at Sam's club in Winston Salem Friday. They finally dropped the price down to $20. It has really mellowed since they first got it. Taste is very complex and the alcohol bite is nearly non-existent.

    Sounds delicious.

    In celebration of the Steeler victory I'm opening a bottle of Avery Fifteen.

    GO STEELERS!!!

    Has anyone else had Goose Island's 312 beer. It is billed as an "urban wheat", whatever that means (I picture wheat fields growing in parking lots). Some of the local drinking establishments are now featuring it on tap. It is a pleasant tasting brew with a few fruit flavors that linger. I had it with a fish sandwich, and it went down easily.

    This thread made it to page two, so it needed a post.

    Stopped at the liquor looking for two particular things, neither of which were available. Nonetheless, it was a good trip. I picked up a bottle of DFH Red & White (an oak aged, blended wit beer with pinot noir juice added), Lefthand Warrior IPA (a fresh hopped IIPA), Russian River Blind Pig IPA, Lost Abbey Red Barn Ale (a farmhouse ale), and two bottles of Avery Samael's (oak aged english strong ale; bottled in April 2008). I'll probably try and pick up another bottle or two of the last one for the "cellar".

    Not a bad haul.

    Now you'll have to find some DFH Black and Blue. I've never tasted it but I think it is a black raspberry and blueberry beer but I'd look at their web site first.

    Forgot one from a couple weeks ago: French Broad Brewing Company Wee Heavy-er. A well done representative of the scotch ale variety tasted during our Asheville trip. Deep brown with a hint of smokiness, lots of maltiness/toffee or dark caramel flavors with a bit of hop bite. Quite smooth overall. Matched nicely with pan-seared scallops with a balsamic vinagrette drizzle and a vegetable ratatouille. 7% ABV. Reminded me quite a bit of CB&B's scotch ale from Brunchgate. That's quite a compliment, too.

    Thanks and I don't think I've had any of their brews, I'll have to keep my eye out. I wonder how far east they distribute.

    LOVE this stuff, but it will kick your bottom area of your body that you use to sit on.

    Not to hijack this thread (is that possible 2,000+ posts in?) but isn't the word "wanker" worse than the word it replaced in Mr. Blue Devil's post? Yes, the word than can also mean a type of equine should be filtered. But "wanker" can mean something that is even more inappropriate.

    Wow, I got that for editing the bad word with a $ $?

    Tonight calls for something stiff, so I poured a glass of Samael's into a double old fashioned glass and am sipping while going between DBR and a book. If not for this beer, I'd be drinking Bulleit because nothing else in my fridge was going to cut it.

    This beer is 2008 vintage, and was bottled in April of last year. Surprisingly, it's still very boozy on the nose. In addition to the alcohol smell, it has heavy notes of vanilla, butter, and apple. The flavor is very rich and creamy with lots of caramel and an acidic, cidery flavor. It also completely covers your mouth and lingers for a long while. It reminds me of a nice old country chardonnay--oaky and rich. The flavors are complex (and there's a lot I can't pick out) right now, but I imagine this beer will be fantastic as it mellows. ABV is over 15%.

    I had a Blasphemy tonight. Think about the implications of that one.

    Watching carolina Go To HELL!
    At the Denver International Airport again, but this time have only a 45 minute layover between flights. Just enough time to return to the Rock Bottom and have another Molly's Titanic, which I am doing right now! Same review as last Friday.
    Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!

    Go To Hell carolina, Go To Hell!

    Stone collaboration triple..

    My local source had a nice stash of this collaboration between Stone-Mikkeller-Alesmith in 12oz bottles. As a big fan of Stone and tripels, I picked up 5 of them.. Not a bad beer but not the best tripel I've ever had. Pours a very pale orange color..Taste was good but very dry compared to other tripels...bit hoppy. Sounds like a limited edition brew so I'm glad i got to try it but I won't be rushing to the store to be the rest of their stock..

    I think we need to start a thread for "grocery store beer."

    I <3 Corona Extra. It is not a thick or chunky beer.

    Blasphemy-Weyerbacher Brewing Company-Their Quad offering aged in oak/whiskey barrels. I know a tripple but can't figure out how you ferment an ale 4 times. Brownish-orange in color with some typical elements of a tripple (dark fruit). Tons of maltiness, mild hop presence and woody/oaky with hints of vanilla and orange peel. A mild whiskey taste in the finish. IBU not known but probably 60-70 range. 11% ABV so this was a bomber divided over 2 nights. I am convinced I have found an east coast rival for the Avery folks. Are you reading, RMD?
