Do this! It is actually worse right out of fridge, the warmer it got the better it was.

My Ride: gobbles oil like a B
i really think I'm the only one in the world that can't stand ten fidy. Just gross, and I love me some strong beers, especially stouts! The alcohol was just way over the top on the Ten Fidy. And by over the top, I mean that it comes through way too much, I've had other beers as strong, or stronger and the alcohol is masked much better. I think that's what makes a great strong beer, when it's really strong, but the alcohol doesn't overpower the intense flavor.

anyways.. here's what i bought the other day and cracked open last night to try, it's called Troubadour Obscura, and on the bottle it says "Mild Stout Product of Belgium...Alc 8.2%" Great Bottle, with champagne cork!


Now the interesting thing about this beer is that coming from America, I must have an entirely different opinion of what constitutes a "stout" because this was unlike any stout I've ever had in my life. It was typically Belgian Extra Bubbly, re-fermented in the bottle, but not smooth like a stout should be. Almost tasted like drinking a Belgian Saison, just a little tad darker. Flavor was good, but after my first glass, I totally forgot that I was supposedly drinking a "mild stout". Interesting. Won't buy again, but interesting. Put a decent dent in my for the 750ml too...

Purchased this elusive beer today:



Voodoo Brewing Black Magick

This is an Imperial Stout that is Brewed to great strength and complexity. It is then aged in Elaigh Craig 13 1/2 year old Bourbon Barrels for 1 yr. and then primed and bottled to bottle condition for continued aging and celler life. Black Magick should be able to be aged up to about 5 years, to heighten the complexity and smooth nature of this beer. This beer should be opened to breath, pour into snifter and enjoy at 55-60 F.

Released every 2 years.

Damn, that black magick sounds amazing!

Here's a few that I've had over the past few days:

This is one great beer, Hop aroma is absolutely AMAZING, and it comes through strong in the taste as well. Makes me gain more respect for Sam Adams as I had lost a bit because of getting tired of their same ol selection.. (not to knock the Imperial series because they are all good as well, but this one really was outstanding!)


Then had this, M8Fn BOMB. Almost as incredible as Southern Tier's Chokolat, but a little different.. almost as good as BBC's Coffeehouse Porter, I'd say it's on par with that. I LOVE me some long trail! Damn the F8cker that took this pic, he got it for a dollar cheaper than I did!


Then got a 12 pack of this to try since the normal lager was really good, loving it so far, this is one of my favorite session beers now!


Oh yeah, and I got a 4 pack of Aprihop too, DELICIOUS for the spring!!!

New to this thread and haven't had a chance to look through it yet.

Hopefully Bell's HopSlam has been posted already, that's probably my favorite beer of all time.

Dogfish Head 90 Minute is good, haven't had a chance to try the 120 Minute yet.

He'Brew R.I.P.A. Is pretty damn good and so is the Gordon IPA.

I've probably tried upwards of 70 different beers but many of the names are eluding me ATM. HopSlam is my #1 and it's so hard to get it down here in Atlanta. I bought about 2-1/2 cases back in January and that's going to have to last me for the rest of the year

I also enjoyed the Latitude 48. Surprisingly hoppy for a low ABV Sam Adams brew.

I almost picked up one of those Long Trail's, but passed it up. I'll have to grab one next time I'm out.

Hop Slam is very good! One of my favorite seasonal IIPA's. If you liked the Gordon IPA, try a Gubna (if you haven't already)!

I just poured this:



Absolutely fantastic! Definitely one of my top 5 beers.

I'll have to definitely be on the lookout for Gubna, the Gordon was one of the first IPA's I ever had

After enjoying Trappistes Rochefort 6, 8, and 10, my beer guru suggested Trois Pistoles. Absolutely delicious

Boy, Weihenstephaner sure has some nice beers, and the price is decent too! Just tried this last night. JJR, get this, you won't be sorry, it's super smooth, and 7+% alc too, KORBINAN delicious!


Also got a six pack of this, tastes oddly almost exactly like Loose Cannon, but it's black. Only difference I can really tell is that the scent of the hops isn't as strong as in Loose Cannon, none the less this is a GREAT beer!


Then also got a 12 pack of Sierra Nevada Glissade, which is a super smooth golden bock, I think I definitely perfer their normal pale ale or any of their more hoppy offerings, but if you like a smooth, not overly hopped beer, this one is for you!

Triz i had the Vidas last thursday... great choice man, i would have never thought to try that. I'm a purist with Weihenstephaner so I always go for the hefe lol. I'll try that one as well...

I wonder if they make an Eisbock... that would be super sweet Schnieder's Eisbock is amazing, almost port-ish... and a slap in the face with a swift 12% ABV, goes down like nothing

Korbinan is a Dopplebock, check out this rating son!

http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/weihens...orbinian/7823/

By the way, now that you've stopped being a Pvssy and are making your way into the stronger beers, if you've never tried this, this is probably one of my top two beers of all time. Just absolutely amazing. For an 11% alc beer, the alc doens't come through as you'd expect, it's literally like drinking liquid hops. BEER OF THE GODS right here, amazing stuff, and like $6.99 for a 22, I bow to this s hit:
