Just finished drinking a growler of the local SAC BREW Sac-Skwatch, a scotch ale with 7.8% loving goodness. It's been my favorite beer for the last two years. and their oktoberfest was amazing...4 blocks from my house. I love them.
I've got one heck of a dilemma. I'm down to my last 6-pack of these and my next batch is still sitting in secondary fermentation, not going to be ready for bottling for at least another week and then it has to condition for about two more weeks. Time to see what I have kicking around in the beer fridge downstairs...
Swiped your image Steve since I've been too busy drinking them to take pictures.
Glad you brought it up, Personally I like Beamish a bit more then Guiness, its thicker, darker and gosh darnet it just tastes better. For any of you who like a good stout, like Guiness, give Beamish a try, you'll like it bunches for shure
current winter warmers: rochefort 8's & 10's (my personal favorites), koningshoeven quad, la binchoise brune, howe sound brewing oatmeal stout, granville island doppelbock, philips brewing double ipa, westmalle tripel, traquair house ale & fullers vintage ale. had an aventinus weizen eisbock last night (a burly wheat beer - 12%abv) - yummy stuff on a cold winter night.
