    I brought a New Glarus Belgian Tart to a share not long ago. Most people thought it too sweet, so there was a lot left over. Towards the end of the night, we started blending it with the rest of the beers that were left.

    Generally it went well with any of the big stouts and porters we had.

    Irish Car Bombs are pretty good. Made by dropping a shot glass of Baileys with a touch of Irish Whiskey into a glass of Guiness stout and then chugging it. I know Corona isn't a favorite here, but instead of a lime pour Bacardi Lemon, or similar liquor, into the neck of the bottle and enjoy.

    No. Maybe if it was terrible or I had money to burn.

    I'm not sure why I did it, probably because I only had a little bit of the bottle left, but I added about a shot or less of Three Olives Smores to a bottle of Founders Breakfast Stout. It's actually pretty good and adds a whole layer of depth to it.

    What experiments have you tried that worked out well? Or more humorously, didn't work so well?

    Full disclosure: I bought a case of FBS, so I had some to tinker with :oops:

    My favorite is a splash of bourbon in a Schlafly Pumpkin Ale. Very tasty.

    Winter solstice while sipping a glass of Crown on the rocks. The vanilla and toffee notes from the beer mellow the crown. Yum

    Splash of Woodford in half a bomber of Dark o'the Moon. I called it a Howl at the Moon.

    I've gown very fond of 1oz Buffalo Trace into a snifter of FBS. I personally prefer it to KBS, but that's one man's opinion.

    Have not tried KBS but i am drinking a FBS now and in think it needs a shot of Jim Beam. Will see how it goes.

    Cheers!

    Definitely add less than a standard shot, probably half. Otherwise it becomes too boozy.

    Another beer cocktail I've been told of but have not yet tried: Stiegl Grapefruit Radler with gin. Sounds great on paper.

    I had a bartender make me a very good beertail. A couple ounces of ST Pumpking, buffalo trace bourbon, and cinnamon liquor over ice.

    I like to mix Jubelale with Pinot Noir, since Jubel (2010) was aged in Pinot barrels. It is a very tasty treat.

    My girlfriend and I call it Jubelwine.

    Bell's mixed 1/3 Champagne with 2/3 stout all day today, people seemed to like it.

    B Nektar Cherry Chipotle Melomel is fantastic with an Imperial Stout.

    When pouring whisky into a stout I go a very small amount, even less than an ounce. Small amount and swirl around the glass before pouring the beer. The swirl may do nothing but make me feel better.

    One of my new favorite boilermakers is a shot of Crown Royal Reserve in a glass of NOLA Hopitoulas.

    I was at my neighborhood hipster/foodie restaurant for late night drinks a couple weeks back and had what they called a Peach n' Pils. Some peach liqueur, some other things I can't remember, and a heavy dose of Prima Pils. Refreshing, probably boozier than I realized, and it made me instantly nostalgic for the summer that had ended all of three weeks earlier.

    1 oz. Hop-infused vodka in a tall, slender glass, fill with Heady Topper, add a few drops of citrus bitters and voila!!!

    In college I would drink the first bit of my bud light and fill the bottle to the top with jäger. It was delicious back then.

    Do you infuse your own vodka or did you actually find someone who makes it?

    It's not liquor but a mix of 1/3 Port Wine and 2/3 RIS is great!

    An ounce of Vanilla Vodka into a dark Brown Ale goes a long way. I specifically do it in Abita Turbo Dog
