I went to pick up a bottle of the goblin yesterday and ended up with some new-to-me stuff. How'd I do?



The oatmeal stout bit the dust last night

The Nut Brown Ale is one of my favorite beers. Soooooo goooood.

You did very, very good.

Be sure to enjoy them "warmer" than normal.

I generally drink my beers warm anyway, so not a problem. I let the oatmeal stout sit out for about half an hour before drinking it and it was absolutely incredible. I absolutely loved it - best stout I've tasted I think.

My problem is deciding which to drink! I only drink one new beer at a time so I can make sure all taste buds are fully functional

Oh, man....this Sammy Smith Nut Brown Ale is unbelievable! Between this and what I remember of the Hobgoblin, I'm wondering if I need to drill a fifth hole in the keezer collar for a permanent English Brown tap.

those are all great brews.

if you want a real treat, pour the Young's into a large glass, and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. enjoy just like a root beer float, trust me!

The Sam Smith stuff is some of my favorite. Especially their Taddy Porter.
They are also my favorite bottles to reuse. They seem heavier then standard bottles. And I think they look cool.

I drank my first Hobgoblin last night. I was kinda disappointed at first taste, but it improved as it warmed up a bit.

I really like the Samuel Smiths Oatmeal Stout.

Those are all solid beers. Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout is one of my favorites. Taddy Porter is excellent too!

The Oatmeal Stout is IMO the best beer there is, unless you
A: are a hophead or B: need to see through your beer
