IPAs and Russian Imperials would seem overrated to someone who says pilsner is their favorite style. If I had to pick a light German I guess Pauliner is best?

Boulevard has a new craft series just had the Bourbon Aged Quad Bottled at 11.2% but drinkable. Thick and syrupy with sweet cherry on the front and a whiskey finish. Very nice effort.

EDIT: for the canuck try La Fin Du Monde its Canadian and you won't find a better abbey this side of Rochefort 10

Troegs Scratch 57 - not sure what this is exactly but it is very heavy with cocoa and berries. Definitely worth trying if you can find it.


Nugget Nectar - don't need to say much here


Allagash Curieux - very interesting barrel aged trippel


Sixpoint Resin - highly drinkable 9.1% ABV DIPA
Just curious but where do you live? I can get the Allagash around here (SC) but none of the rest, which is no real suprise actually.

I live just outside of Philly - very fortunate from a beer perspective.

I'm picking up a case of Sucuba tomorrow. I'll vertical one fresh with last year's Abacus and then age the rest.

Duvel is definitely good.

Tonight I stopped by my favorite liquor store and picked up a 6 pack of Victory Golden Monkey tripel Belgian ale bottles (9.5% abv). First time trying these (or noticing them whatsoever). I like it a lot. I'm surprised it hasn't scored better on BA (84). It is pricey (nearly $13 for a 6 pack and that's with the 5% cash discount) but still not as much as my favorite St. Bernardaus Abt 12 when you take volume into account. It's not up there with St. B but it's good imo. And I'm sure feeling the buzz much more than I seem to with the Abt 12. Though the alcohol is not overpowering to taste. Honestly I don't seem to get hit with too much of a buzz from the Abt 12 which is one negative if there is one. Could be sample size as I am on like 3 hours' sleep today and was cramming for a test all day so am super exhausted and worn out and haven't eaten much all day either.

But this is a good Belgian ale with high ABV that you will feel but not really taste. I'm not a beer snob but I'm getting there. At least wrt to the high ABV stuff. Why pay $8 for <4% beer 6 pack when you can get like twice the alcohol and better tasting beer for only 50% more cost???

Was in line alone checking out and guy and wife behind me chatted me up. They looked like total partiers. Tats, rings, liquor in hand, dyed hair, etc. I heard the wife say "oh Golden Monkey!" so I turned around and the guy was like "that **** will **** you up bro, it's awesome!" lol. I mustered a "yeah well it's a Belgian Trippel so.... yeah." They probably thought I was about a decade younger than I am.

Don't let the lower number of bottles you drink deceive you into thinking you're drinking less.

huh? I'm about done with my third 9.5%er and I'm on 3 hours sleep and all I've eaten today is a jalapeno double cheesburger from Sonic and a handful of tostitions scoops today.

When I'm looking to get drunk for cheap, I always go for Steel Reserve 211. It tastes no worse than the mainstream beers like coors light/budweiser/etc, and you're getting a higher alcohol content AND a substantially lower price. Note: Most of my friends hate it. Be sure if you've never had this stuff before to refrigerate it well and drink it before it starts to get warm, or else you'll probably want throw it up.

When I'm not looking to get real drunk, I'll buy Yuengling Lager. It's roughly $18-20 for a case and tastes substantially better than other mainstream beers that have a similar price.

Pricier beers: I like Stella and Heineken.



*Prohornblower, My local bar has that Golden Monkey in 40's. That's pretty solid as well, I've had it on occasion before.

Dude, steel reserve is a lot worse in taste than normal **** domestics.

Yeah, I mean the taste doesn't bother me really (Most of my friends hate it, a few like it). Mainly, the price and alcohol content make me choose it over the overpriced domestics. You can get a 40oz of it with 8% alcohol for $2.

Oh lol. She knows I drink high ABV stuff now. She makes fun of me and calls me a beer snob. Her parents stock Miller Lite for me at their house I actually BMOB to their house one day and she said that was rude. lol. I was like "I'm sorry it's Thanksgiving I want Dogfish Head not Miller Piss Beer"

I have no problem with drinking pissbeer but I just hate having to piss every 20 minutes.

This week's haul.


A killer Belgian - Pilaarbijter (bartender was callin it Pillowbiter)


Lost Abbey Deliverance - a blend of 2 barrel aged stouts (Angel Share and Serpent Stout) that were subsequently aged in brandy barrels. Interesting experiment and I get why it was so expensive ($17 for 12 oz.) but I wasn't ga-ga over it. Have one more that I'll let sit for a year.


Firestone Walker Sucuba - a barleywine. These guys are the kings of barrel aged beer - period.


KBS - good, but not worth the effort I had to go through to get it. Maybe I'll feel differently about the other bottle I got in a year when I drink it then.

i highly doubt that victory even makes 40s. It's probably a bomber (which is 22oz) or a full 750mL

It was definitely a 40 ounce. This was recently too, so it might be something new that they are doing now.
