    Beachwood Tovarish above any others!

    - Kuhnhenn Imperial Creme Brulee Java Stout
    - The Bruery Portola Rossa series
    - Ballast Point Double Sumatra Victory at Sea

    I've always enjoyed quality Coffee beers, but for the last few months, for some reason they're all I crave anymore.

    Bourbon County Brand Stout; I am writing this due to the affordability compared w/variants. I can't get enough. Thought I was a sour/gueuze/lambic guy; turns out BA stouts tickles me timbers

    Just got back from a Ft. Collins/NoCo weekend and had a few items I definitely want more of:
    Ft. Collins Brewing Double Chocolate Coffee stout leads the way. I had no expectations, but it was terrific - maybe the best beer of that sort I've ever had.
    Their "For Whom the Belg Tolls" Belgian ESB (yeah, I know that's odd) was also memorable.
    Grimm Brothers Weihnachtsbier Weizenbock would be next.
    Odell's Hand Built Pale follows that one.
    While not something I tried for the first time, I'm loving TRVE's Stout 0))).

    It's very expensive is the only reason I can think of, but it's absolutely an astounding brew.

    I couldn't agree with you more, I recently tried an Anniversary Barley Wine Ale from Unitas. My reaction was not good, but this is a respected beer, so why was it not for me? An experienced beer taster would understand that I don't understand the beer, it is not a mediocre beer it is fine and tasty, but because I don't like this particular brew doesn't deserve a negative review. So many members of the BA reviewer group develop a snotty attitude that every brew should cower to their taste. Forget that, take chances and admit that some tastes are quite different. A crappy beer is still crappy, but if you don't understand, keep it to yourself, or just go technical without the editorial.

    Whenever I see GI i think GI track. Somewhat less appealing than Goose Island. I do love the Pepe Nero though! I'll have to check out the Madame Rose
