If I want chocolate chip cookie dough, I'll eat a tube of Toll House. I want my beer to taste like beer.[/quote]

You'd be surprised how some flavors mesh. There's a NW brewery that does a salted caramel stout and it's excellent. Stouts work well with some of these flavors. I do agree they can get crazy and not everything works but hey, it's better then having three options and they all come in Lite.

It's mostly in the aftertaste. I thought this was really good. Lots of vanilla and cinnamon and then the pepper taste on the finish. Very interesting beer. Just like I'd expect from New Holland.

There is definitely an element of that in microbrews but unless it's a flavor I really dislike I'm still a sucker to try it. I find that Evil Twin brewery is the most "out there" for combining flavors in beers but they're also the best at it IMO. It doesn't always work but when it does I think the result is spectacular.

I enjoy their Biscotti Break. Evil Twin is hard to find here, usually have to head to the west side of the state.

Yeah the Biscotti Break is great.

I'm enjoying a weird one tonight, Tallgrass Brewing's "One Eye Jacques". It's a Belgian tripel combined with a stout. It sounds nasty but it's not, it's great. Sadly, Tallgrass is in Manhattan, KS and I'm sure not available up there in "beer wasteland". Laughing

I have Toho to thank for introducing me to Belgian brews. Trying other kinds snowballed from that.

I picked up a Maudite this weekend DB because you mentioned it a few posts back and I hadn't had one in a while.

Was in Portland the last couple days and had a PB Porter that was delicious. Goes great with burgers.

Sounds awful to me since I don't like sours at all and I've only recently begun enjoying IPAs (I still don't like "regular" IPAs much, just doubles, triples, blacks and imperials)

I was quite surprised that I liked the sours. So far I've enjoyed what I've tried.

Sours are the one style where my fellow beer-snob friend at work and I disagree.  He loves them; I've hated every one I've ever tried.

Wow! My Sam's Club now has a "Craft Beer Island"!!!

I bought a bottle of North Coast's "Brother Thelonius" for 6.50 and 4 bottles of Boulevard's "Rye On Rye On Rye" for 6.97. Both of those are less than I could pay elsewhere but the Boulevard one is a real steal. For one thing that was a limited release and you can't find it now; but even better, I was paying 11.99 per bottle when I did find it so 6.97 is a real deal. They also had Chimay Blue for 10.99 a bottle but I couldn't remember what I paid for that the last time I bought one so I held off.

That is a great price on the Rye on Rye. I can get Chimay Blue for $9 here which is still too high.

I went to my local beer store today and finally picked up a 6 pack of Oskar Blues "Old Chub" scotch ale. I'd been debating about buying this because I'm really picky with scotch ales but I think this one is a winner.

I'm still drinking Spaten Optimator. I was talked into trying Dogfish Head Midas Touch a while back since it gives a person a different buzz and supposedly it was taken from a recipe found during an excavation of a pyramid. Anyway, I didn't like the beer at all and hated the buzz it gave me. I got a headache after two and fell asleep, I'd never had a beer do that to me before.

I like Midas Touch.

I never heard that story about it though. Dogfish Head beers only started becoming available here about a month ago and Midas Touch is one I like. In fact I've like all the DfH beers I've had so far. And the best part is that they're available in most grocery stores around here; no special trips to a beer store.

Tried some of Anthrax's "Wardance Pale Ale" this past week - not bad but as metal related beers go, gimme Iron Maiden's Trooper any day.

Old Chub is an excellent scotch ale. Oskar Blues is a high quality brewery.

I love their "Death By Coconut" but it must a seasonal because it's gone from these parts now.  But I'm really impressed with this scotch ale.   I guess I'll have to explore the rest of their "catalog". 

Beer has become like music for me.  When I find a brewery/band I like, I have to explore their catalog.   I'm such a geek...
