      I also tried Dead Man's Ale and it sure does live up to it's name. I drank an entire 6-pack and I was weaving and stumbling when I was trying to walk straight. That was the last time I would ever buy it. 8.5% WHOA!

      My beer! Bourbon Barrell Old Ale. I aged it with oak cubes that sat in some Evan Williams' 12 year old for a month. Then added some bourbon for good measure. Definitely the best beer I have ever drank.
      Oh... I just got a clue. Oohhhhh.... Ohhhph Frank! I have such a raging clue right now, I think we better follow it.

      I can never find it and I'm wayyyyyyyyyyy closer than you. Did you get it on a trade or do they sell it there?

      Got 6- 4 packs in the basement right now. Jealous? Let me know if you want me to send you some. My local store has all of their delicious and potent beers.

      I know, every thread I start in this forum is about beer
      Anyways, for me, it has to be Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat.

      Wow...this is weird man... I also 'discovered' this beer recently and have fallen in love. So delicious. Weird thing is my bro in law also found the same beer at the same time and loves it...

      Two of them, thanks to my brewer and beer guru friend:
      Ommegang: Three Philosophers
      Old Belgium: Mothership Wit
      And both are just . First domestic white for me, much milder than the Belgian ones, less spicey, but man...sooo goood...
      And that Ommegang, like all of there brews...just delicious...
      My $0.02 and my two offerings... [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Alright, first of all it's NEW Belgium not Old Belgium and don't you forget it. They brew here right in Fort Collins and they are by far the coolest and best brewery in the country right now. If you don't believe me drink their beer and check out their website. The folks at New Belgium do great things and I'm not just talking about their beer. Second of all Mothership Wit is a great beer. It's an organic wit beer and damn is it tasty. I like to try new beers but NB is always going to be a favorite.

      120 Minute IPA
      Availability: limited - 3 releases scheduled for 2007
      Release Date: Jan, May, Sept. 2007
      Too extreme to be called beer? Brewed to a colossal 45-degree plato, boiled for a full 2 hours while being continuously hopped with high-alpha American hops, then dry-hopped daily in the fermenter for a month & aged for nother month on whole-leaf hops!!! Our 120 Minute I.P.A. is by far the biggest I.P.A. ever brewed! At 20% abv and 120 ibus you can see why we call this beer THE HOLY GRAIL for hopheads!
      20% abv
      120 ibu
      In case you care... the average 12 oz. serving has 450 calories.

      I'll keep my eyes peeled as it should be available.

      I'm going to check three three specialty stores around my area. If I cannot find it I'll PM. Been waiting to try this stuff for a couple years.

      Had Saint Arnolds Divine Reserve #5 (annual limited release...) on Saturday @ a Saint Arnolds beer/cheese event. This years brew is a 9.5% abv RIS that is quite good. Sweet, chocolate, RIS. I am going to buy a case of this stuff when it is officially released tuesday. Age a couple and share a couple...

      F/ my beer advocate review... Divine #5.
      I have been patiently awaiting this beer for some time now… and was it worth the wait!
      Style = Russian Imperial Stout
      Bottle – Saint Arnolds hat is glowing as he points towards the heavens, errr… or is that the Lonestar of Texas. Vibrant purple label with golden hops outlined in the border.
      Pours a thick, rich, dark chocolate color. Very little head, if any, even with a strong pour. The caramel colored head that does reside lightly clings to the glass, leaving nice lacing.
      Smells RICH. Sweet dark chocolate, roasted coffee, and a bite of fruity flavor, not distinctly, but ‘cranberryesque’.
      Initial flavor of dark chocolates as the carbonation dances across the taste buds. Roasted almond flavors arise as swallowing and are quickly followed kindly by floral hops as that (as Brock said) “can never really catch up” leaving your mouth yearning for more.
      This years Divine is wonderful. The 10% abv hides itself dangerously well. It pours beautifully. The smell is dessert in and of itself. The thick, full body and light carbonation leaves great, buttery mouthfeel. My vote for best beer in Texas goes to Divine #5. Buying a case on Tuesday and aging a couple, excited to see the results.

      Just got this in at my establishment.

      Widmer Brothers Oktoberfest. The messed up thing is the distributor brought in the keg [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] , brought in the new tap handle [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG], saw how excited I was and told me the it was excellent [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] , then told me I had to wait a week for him to hook it up [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG] . What a freakin teaser that was, I almost waited for him to leave and hooked it up myself.

      I haven't had a new beer recently.
      I need to go to Brouwers again soon to try some new stuff.
      There are many great choices for beer in this thread, keep it up!

      Got some Bell's 8000 at home that I scored in a trade. Should have some more fun stuff coming in the mail next week.

      Saint Arnolds Ellissa IPA tonight.

      Real Ale's Full Moon Rye and Barnyard Brown tonight. The rye is outstanding, the brown is average.

      Sent out a bunch of Saint Arnolds Divine Reserve 5 on trade for some interesting craft brews... should have some fun stuff later this week.
