I just bought a case of Winter and Holiday Ales from the BeerYard in Wayne. I am sampling a couple tonight.

So far, thumb's down on the Otter Creek Raspberry Brown. The raspberry flavor came through nicely and was obvious to be real not extract but I disagree with the malt chouce for the Brown portion. A little unbalanced. Needed a touch of sweetness to bridge the base and toasted malt. Maybe some crystal 60.

I had a Flying Fish IPA on tap earlier that was very very good but it had a slight sourness to it? Am I right here? Also the IBUs were not as high as I was expecting.
On Tap: 1. Kelly R. IPA, 2. Roter Hund Hefeweizen, 3. Bud Killer Blonde, 4. Red Dog Pale, 5. Roter Hund Oktoberfest, 6. Pumpkin Ale, 7. McRed's Stout (with new nitro system and stout tap,) Cream Soda, 8. ESB # 3, & 9. Ordinary Bitter.

Hobgoblin... Normally yum, but after a night on the town and with a kebab, not so good!

Stopped by the local beer shop (Lukas Liquor) on my way home from the bulk grain pick up.

The MIL gave me a gift certificate there for Christmas (man I love that woman). Picked up some Bluebird Bitter, Some various Scottish Ale, a few Wee Heavy's, Some local IPA's and a Rogue Dead Guy Ale. All 22's.

Got home and onloaded and decided to give my "Left Nut Ale" a sample since it's been on the gas for a whole 24 hours now. Awesomeness is the only way to describe this one...but more on that later.

I'm just finishing the Dead Guy (in my HBT glass) and it is very nice. My first. Kind of like a kicked up, fruity amber with some wheat malt in there. Sweet. Slightly spicy. A medley of fruit with some (slight) banana. A very nice beer. The yeast (don't know what it is) really seems to play a heavy role with this one. I like it.

...oh...wait.......just finished it.

Hmmmph. Okay...going to go put another log in the fireplace and peruse my commercial haul for my next "experience".

Stone 11th Anniversary, now a year and a half later. From a growler refill at the brewery.

The hops are really dropping out of this now. I had it a few months ago and it still tasted like an IPA. It's now like a big brown ale with a little citrus hop flavor. It's still good, just really different.

If anyone still has bottles hanging around and wants to drink it while it still resembles an IPA, you should probably drink it soon. I still have a couple bottles, I think I'll still hold on to them for a while.
