Close to the New Belgium "Belgo" This stuff will sneak up on you and grab you by the boo boo if you don't watch out.

The stuff is outstanding. Its FLAT 12 brewery. The bonus is, Smoking Goose meats is right across the street. One of the finest butcher/ old world meats I've ever been too.

Here is another one I tried. I know ScreamingChicken likes waxed dipped tops :wink: It was an expensive bottle that my wife bought me. It really came to life as it warmed up. Really at its best at cellar temp or warmer.

"Aged imperial porter brewed with chocolate" sounds good to me! I wonder if the chocolate is a legitimate part of the brewing process and not just added at the end.

And the dog really puts the Lab in label! :lol:

Those of you who homebrew might enjoy this episode of "Wisconsin Foodie":

I'm watching it on TV right now so hopefully it'll be available online soon, if it isn't already.

Satin Solitude from Central Waters is a nice imperial stout...

Yesterday I spotted some Miller Fortune for the first time and it's pretty good. Definitely bolder and stronger than High Life and MGD, and at $6.49 it's competitively priced with other big-brewer domestic premiums.

I brewed some chocolate stout I'm happy with the results I just wish it had a little more of a chocolate taste to it. I'm not a fan of beer with deserts so I'm trying to think of a good food pairing for it. At the moment all I can think of is something that uses mole but I never made anything with mole before.

Wiseguy, I'll bet that beer would be great with chili.

Last night at bowling they now have it in bottles.

I tried one and thought was really good for a Miller Product.

Not sure if anyone else uses it here but an App for Android and Apple called Untappd (My handle is of-course Trollby :) )

I just put in a request on untapped to follow you my handle is wiseguynj. I usually use the app to find beers in my area. Last week was the first time I added a beer that I was drinking. It was Sweet Baby Jesus a peanut butter chocolate porter.
