Speaking of Pumking, they are also coming out with a pumpkin stout this fall.

Not a fan of pumpkins that are imperial or stouts.

Loving IPA's more and more

I OD'd on Pumking this year - it started tasting too flavored to me.

Uinta out in Utah had some good brews. I wish I had access to more! Cutthroat Pale Ale was nice King's Peak porter was really good too.

We also had Wasatch I loved Polygamy Porter - I think it was the most chocolatey beer I've had - a nice chocolate though not artificial. We had another crappy local porter which I forget the name of the brewery even.

And the distillery - High West I think? They have all their nice stuff out there - they have crappy kitchy crap in the Jersey liquor stores. Their ryes were nice - a nice assortment. I really like whiskey - it's easier to have in moderation. I always feel like I have to finish a beer - though my brother in law came up with a nice saying - Life is too short to drink bad beer.

Lately I've been really digging Sixpoint's beers, especially the Sweet Action. Quickly becoming my favorite brewery.

I read a couple articles recently saying that hops lowers testosterone. I don't know by how much, and I know a whole host of other things do that too -- but still, because I love beer, it did make me step back and say, Wow, I wonder if it's something I need to be very concerned about.

Of course, I'm drinking a Lakefront IPA as I type this, LOL.

Drank a couple of Troegs Java Head Stouts earlier today. Pretty good. I'd definitely have it again.

I also bought a bottle of Brooklyn Ops but haven't tried it yet. Maybe this weekend.

So good! I got it for my brother for Christmas and he let me have a glass.

I used to get a bottle of Black Ops every year and then let it mellow out for a year and have it on New Year's Day. I stopped doing it though because it's too pricey for me.

Hey I just saw that uinta has beer out here sort of - Crooked Line bottled by Uinta - same lables. I didn't see any of the good stuff just the seasonal specialty beer like Birthday Suit and stuff - a weird dark one I didn't try despite it being at a Burns Night party last night.

I bought a bottle of Uinta Labyrinth probably about a year ago, it was pretty good.

Anyone tried the new Coffee milk porter from Kane yet? They used a local coffee place for their beans too.

I saw a bottle of Labyrinth by me a couple of weeks ago. I didn't know anything about it until I got home and Googled it. I'm hoping they still have it next time I go back.

There's quite a few New Jersey breweries that don't get sold anywhere near me in North Jersey -- Kane being one and Carton being another, thinking off the top of my head. I need to keep looking, I guess.

I got the Kane porter this afternoon from cranbury buy rite. Its a very rich coffee milk stout. I like it, a very nice blend of the heavy coffee taste with a mid note finish. Definitely a one glass a night thing though.

Was at Triumph in Princeton last night. I think their Bengal Gold IPA might be my favorite IPA out there.

To the poster from Colorado, Oskar Blues is amazing. They make a Scotch Ale that is out of this world. Also, I had the 21st Ammendment Back in Black and the one with space monkeys on the can the other day. Very tasty stuff.

Have a Goose Island Bourbon County Stout sitting at home. An unbelievable brew but you have to like that whiskey flavor in order to enjoy it. My local craft beer bar, PONY Bar on the Upper East Side, had Victory Hop Devil on a nitrogen pour. Imagine the smoothness of a Guiness with the hop of an IPA, and you've pretty much nailed it.

Ahh yes, Old Chub from Oskar Blues. That is a damn good beer. I really like most of their beers, Dales, Deviant Dales, Old Chub, Ten Fiddy, Gubna. They are all excellent.

I also have a Bourbon County Stout in my fridge. Old man picked it up at Canals black friday sale and gave it to me. I think it's 15% ABV. I've been saving it for when I've had an especially rough day at the office ;)

Nitrogen is really common in Colorado. Most taprooms and brewpubs will have at least 1 beer on a nitro pour as well as a cask or hand pump. Nitros seem to be way less common out here. I'm not a huge fan of nitros but some beers can be very good and taste much different from a standard co2 tap.

Bourbon County Stout is a hell of a beer, but I refuse to buy anything from Goose Island now that they are owned by Anheuser-Busch, the biggest threat to all craft breweries. Plus Founders KBS is better I think, and Weyerbacher Heresy is close enough for me.

Back In Black is easily in my top 5 beers right now. Maybe even top 3. I love that friggin stuff.

I'm hard pressed to think of either an Oskar Blues or 21st Amendment brew that I've had that I didn't like.

Speaking of beer, has anybody tried the Untappd iPhone / Android app? It sounds cheesy at first, but it's a cool way to "Check In" where you're drinking and more importantly, what. I like it because it helps me keep track of different brews when I'm out and rate them. That way, if I try something new and loved it, I can document it. You can also locate where a certain beer is nearby, so if I had the taste for an Old Chub, I could do a search and find where else somebody has checked it in. Pretty neat!

Also, has anybody tried the Founder Boltcutter? One of my neighborhood beer stores has it in stock, but it's $30 for a 22 oz bottle. Supposedly it's an anniversary brew and pretty hard to find.

Back in black is delicious, even my IPA/hop hating relatives like it.

Bolt Cutter is part of the Backstage Series that Founders is doing. They are coming out with a different beer in 22 oz. bottles once every couple months. They are all either only brewed just this once, or have previously only been sold on tap at the brewery in the past. Bolt Cutter is the latest one, and they usually sell out in a matter of days, I'm surprised your store still has it even at that price. I have one but I'm letting it mellow out for a while and saving it for a special occasion.

Had the Head High IPA from Kane Brewing yesterday from the Office in Bridgewater who had it on tap. Still one of the best IPA's around IMO.
