    Bourbon Barrel Skipping Stone
    Belgian style Quad Ale aged in bourbon barrels.
    A timeless action of nature in motion inspired a beer both rich and elegant. Bourbon Barrel Aged Skipping Stone exudes powerful notes of caramel, dark fruit, spice, and oak. A beautiful beer to imbibe in subtle surroundings, where the mind can roam. Rich, smooth, bourbon and chocolate.

    Bourbon Barrel Aged Nuts For You

    9% ABV. Peanut Butter stout aged in bourbon barrels for 6 months

    Nice balance of the rich malts, peanuts, cocoa, and bourbon barrel. Not overly sweet, have to love liquid peanut butter (and bourbon)...they do make a non-BBA version, it's good too.
    Yea, the original is very good. Not sure I ever had the BBA version.

    Ol' Rugger Russian Imperial Stout

    Stout - Russian Imperial

    16% ABV

    "Our bourbon barrel aged Russian Imperial Stout is a nod to our friend Lynn Harvey and the great sport of rugby. Big and bold with notes of tobacco, molasses, dark fruit, vanilla and chocolate make this a beer that exemplifies a Rugger and Zaftig. As they say, "Never let good enough BE enough"

    Luckily this comes in a 12oz. bottle, not a 750ml. Sipping the 12oz. still took a couple hours. My sister got in a lottery for this. Missed out on the Double BBA version, extremely limited. But, I did get two variants, Ol' Rugger with Vanilla and Cocao Nibs and Ol' Rugger Orange Vanilla. Can't wait to try them...
    Ol' Rugger is amazing, unlike ol' roy. Ain't cheap at about $12/12 ounce bottle. The couple variants we shared around Christmas are outstanding, too, and they're about $15/12 ounce bottle. The DBA version was a very, very limited edition and was about $24/12 ounce bottle, making even more expensive than Dark Lords. Our son was not too sorry he missed that lottery number.

    Big Willy is as gentle a giant as ever roamed a heath. Brimming with Honey Malt and Chocolate Wheat, the weighty stride of this Wee Heavy Ale is softened by a stint in freshly used bourbon barrels. The result is a flavorful footprint of toasted oak, rich toffee and vanilla. Fee-fi-fo-yum.

    DOUBLE OAKED MASTODON - BELGIAN STYLE DARK ALE AGED IN BOURBON AND WINE BARRELS
    A looming leviathan of mammoth complexity, this malty megafauna bellows notes of white pepper, banana, peach and apricot. Hibernating first in freshly used bourbon barrels and then red wine barrels, this beast of a Belgian Style Dark Ale gains an epoch’s worth of tannic depth and oaky wisdom.

    A classic - Curieux
    Allagash Brewing Company

    Notes: First brewed back in 2004, Curieux was our first foray into barrel aging. To make Curieux, we take our Tripel and let it age in bourbon barrels for seven weeks. Once that time is up, we take the beer out of our cold cellars and blend it back with a portion of fresh Tripel. The resulting rich, golden ale features smooth notes of coconut, vanilla, and a hint of bourbon.

    So good I traded DD four local 750ml bottles of his choice for four of these he found much cheaper in the midwest...Total Wine and Krogers have it here but $17-$18 a piece.

    Best side-by-side was tailgating and August brought a new bottle and a five year old bottle of Curieux. The 5-year old was better...
    Yep. I think we had a 3rd year, too, so a side-by-side-by-side. Wonderful event.

    Some might like it, but I was not a fan. It tasted sort of like carbonated seltzer water tea with some hop flavors.

    But the caffeine should do the trick today.

    And I absolutely loved all the other Fullsteam Cans from fuse in the recent trader set.

Ancient Mesopotamians wrote poems about it, and considered it proof of divine existence. The Ancient Egyptians used it in a number of religious ceremonies. In Medieval Europe, monks made beer their monasteries, elevating the craft of brewing to an art form. Today, only water and tea are more widely consumed than beer, and over 35 billion gallons of beer are produced worldwide per year. "
    So "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy" came from the ancient Mesopotamians, and not Ben Franklin:

    More ABV is never something I seek when choosing a beer. But it seems most of mine end up above the 4-7% mark, meaning I'll usually stop after 1 in the evening. Sessionable beers definitely have their place.

    Sadly no. OPK could definitely clarify this more. But that Bourbon County Stout I had in Vegas was at a Beer Garden restaurant watch party for a 7 fight UFC parlay I'd bet on. (I actually got all 7 fights right which should never happen and turned a $70 wager into $800.)

    Most of the free beers you can choose while playing poker are things like Heineken or Corona. So players who drink will often get a White Russian, Gin & Tonic, Jack & Coke, Margarita, etc. Most serious poker players want to be able to think and will actually order either free bottled water or coffee. My game is bad enough that it isn't worsened by spirited beverages, so I usually do get them. I've found it gives me a better table image as a loose player, which ends up giving more action. This thus is a much more profitable (and fun) table image than a rock.

    But I'd be very interested to know if casinos are serving better free beers now.

    BOURBON BARREL QUAD - BARREL-AGED ALE

    Based loosely on the Smokestack Series’ The Sixth Glass, this abbey-style quadrupel is separated into a number of oak bourbon barrels where it ages for varying lengths of time, some for up to three years. Cherries are added to make up for the “angel's share” of beer lost during barrel aging. Selected barrels are then blended for optimum flavor. The resulting beer retains only very subtle cherry characteristics, with toffee and vanilla notes coming to the fore.

    ALC/VOL 12.2%
    IBUs 26

    Another go-to beer, readily available and reasonably priced. I have this a lot more if it wasn't for Hardywood, Ardent, Veil, etc. etc.
    Another world class beer.

    RYE ON RYE - BARREL-AGED RYE ALE

    Why Rye? This assertively flavorful grain is more often associated with whiskey than with ales. Even in that arena, it has largely been eclipsed by corn and barley, the sources of bourbon and scotch. But when we procured some seasoned barrels from our friends at Templeton Rye, we asked ourselves, “Why not?” Why not brew a rich, tawny rye ale, then mellow it in the warmth of charred oak rye whiskey casks? Two kinds of malted rye provide spicy sweetness, giving way to notes of vanilla, charred oak and the citrusy tang of Citra and Styrian Golding hops before easing into a dry, lingering finish.

    ALC/VOL
    12%
    IBUs 33
    I've still got 3 of these left from the 4 pack I bought last year. I like the BBA Quad better but only by a very small margin.

Before they made their way to Boulevard, they were used to age Templeton Rye 4, then filled with Vermont maple syrup for two months, then re-filled with whiskey to create Templeton Rye Maple Cask Finish.

    They were the perfect vessel for our brewers to take Rye on Rye — a complex yet approachable ale that defies categorization — to the next level. Exactly what that level would be was up to our barrel wranglers, who regularly tasted from each barrel, waiting for the magical mingling of beer, maple syrup, and whiskey.

    Aged to perfection, this newest iteration of Rye on Rye is bold and complex, with aromas of maple syrup (duh!), caramel, butterscotch, hazelnut and oaky vanilla that emanate from the glass. The finish on each sip is deceptively smooth for a beer with these epic levels of robust booze character.

    Malt: Pale malt, Cara 50, Rye Malt, Cara Rye, Munich

    This year’s blend comes from aging our Rye on Rye base beer four different ways:

    31% - Templeton Rye Maple Cask Finish barrels
    35% - Templeton 4 year barrels
    27% - Templeton 4 year barrels with Maple syrup added after 8 months
