      Just a had a tankard of Gordon Biersch' Winterbock w/ lunch at their San Jose joint...it was good, typical winter brew, dark, not too heavy, and I'm glad it didn't have a bunch of spices...

      1. #9.. English Ale.. probably my fav
      2. Circus Boy.. not to bad (Hefeweizen beer)
      3. Roxy Rolles (Hoppy Amber Ale).. i liked it
      4. Odd Notion 7.5% alc/vol (only available in the 2007 winter variety pack).. kinda weird initial taste, but the after taste is great

      I stick to Beer Advocate. It is free, a cool community, I like their rating system, Jason and Todd do some great things for the community and their magazine is pretty good to boot...

      And, you can live with yourself a little better when you wake up as an advocate vs. a snob.

      I'll drink Ruination if I have to, but other than that, all stone beers are crappy in my opinion

      Well, Matt is also luckier than many of us. Stone IPA is a very good IPA in my opinion, especially for the distribution we get in TX (mixture between larger west and east coast breweries...) Matt has access to Alesmith, RR, Lost Abbey, Deschutes, Green Flash etc.......

      I don't go a day without visiting this site, unless of course I don't have internet access. Been a member for nearly 5 years now. Even became an Admin. The thing I like about http://www.ratebeer.com is that it is less strict, has a larger more accurate database, has a wider array of users, includes distribution info for beer, and has better trading tools than any other site I have visited in the last 5 years. Great community they have over there! Highly recommended, especially if you want to open yourself up to a wide array of beers from across the country.

      Forgot to add that I got myself a lil' ol box today, from North Carolina:

      I'll probably try one of the Carolina's and the Imperial Kashmire IPA tonight.

    17. 12-20-2007 12:06 AM #342
      Best beer I have had for a while would be that Highland Imperial Kashmir India Pale Ale. Almost into Barley Wine territory. Very big malt background. Very well balanced, if a bit on the malt side. I personally don't care much for IIPAs that are all hops.

    18. 12-20-2007 09:48 AM #343
      Highland's regular IPA was very good. Carolina's was also. The Duck Rabbit Milk Stout is fantastic. Still waiting to try rabid duck, barley wine and baltic porter...
      Awesome haul. Last night I actually had a DFH Punkin. I am letting some age out and trying one every 4x months. I must say, even 4x months gave it a very nice, different flavor from when I had it fresh.

      I've had a Punkin that was I think 2 years old... turned from Pumpkin to being very berry like. Was quite weird. Still tasted great tho!

      Not a fan of the Pumpkin? Hard style to do right. Would love to get my hands on one of these: http://www.ratebeer.com/Beer/m...6804/
      Got myself another package this evening... not yet sure what to try. Hopefully I will have the same kind of luck I had last night.

      Pumpkin/spice beers aren't my thing...
      Nice beer selection there...
      The Big Eddy stout is surprisingly good for Leinie's...
      I see you have Jolly Pumpkin, DarK Horse, Founders and New Holland...all great midwest breweries [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      They are usually responsible for some really creative beers...that actually kick ass. Pretty much anything that comes out of these breweries is solid

      I would love to get my hands on some backwoods as I am a sucker for wood aged/bourbon/brandy beers. I have one of each Capt. Lawrence Smoke of the Oak (Bourbon, Wine and Rum) that I am holding on to for a tasting.

      Last night I had some more Stormking. IMO, just a nice, accessible, 'sessionable' impy stout with some roasted bitterness that doesn't make you feel like you are drinking a milk shake every time you take a sip (looking in Founders Kentucky Bourbon Stout's direction).

      Had the Founders Harvest and the New Holland Existential. The Existential was okay, a little young, but that Founders was exceptional. One of the better Pale Ales I have had os of late, next to Bridgeport Hop Harvest.

      Had these tonight:
