Just opened my first fully carbed bottle of my Baltic Porter - (bottled 2/16)

It was a partial mash AHS kit, bumped to 5.5 gal and with a pound of piloncillo (Mexican unrefined brown sugar, sold in solid cones). I used WLP001 instead of the more common lager yeast, but fermented at about 62. Carbed to about 2.6 - 2.7 volumes. WOW - the high carbonation makes this drink very light iand smooth, especially for a 8.4% brew. Sort of like a Belgain in its deceptiveness, but very clean. I have never had a commercial version of this, so no comparisons. Went from 1.080 to 1.017. Most of my beers are ligher on carb, but this just dances on the tounge. The BJCP descriptor fits. Worth a try if you like big brews. Not too intense on roast, and light bitterness (35 IBU) is just enough to balance the residual sweetness without being cloying. I have heard that these take 3-6 months to reach prime. If it is this good now, I will lock some away, hard as that will be.

Mead.

Drank my swap brews (and yes, felt guilt about it my swap recipients. I ***SWEAR*** yours go out soon) and decided I needed something different.

9 day old Lake Walk Pale Ale anniversary edition.
Took a sample yesterday and carbed up a 16 oz. bottle with the carbonator cap.

Huge grapefruit, peach, pineapple aroma, a bit dry, a bit green, a bit hazy, but dammit it is freaking GREAT!

Gruagach 80/-. Mine isn't as good as Walker's but it is pretty decent.

It is to sweet for some reason.
