Default Winter Brews

Following the Pumpkin Beer Thread trend. Here we go.


Tonight's winter brew for me will be a Brooklyn Brewery Black Chocolate Stout. Stuff is 10% abv. So far so good. Got a nice bite too it, and not a ton of overpowering chocolate taste.

I have no Brooklyn here in the store at this time, but I do have some Sam Adams Winter Lager. Guess I could grab a few Snickers from the Halloween stash we got for the kiddies and wash them down with that.

I picked up a winter lager in a pick six deal, it was pretty good. I may need a few more to form an official opinion I had a few NB 1554's last night that really surprised me. They were really good.

Picked up a case of Magic Hat's winter brew. Anyone ever tried this?

Neverhad it before but I like most Magic Hat products (the new Waycko summer brew was fantastic IMHO). Will be partaking in several of these tomorrow!

Never had any Magic Hat brews before, luckily the local store I go to does carry them. I'll definitely have to grab a 6 pack.

I just grabbed some of that yesterday. Good stuff, though I could swear I remember it being a little less hops and a little more chocolate.

Grab some of the #9 while you're at it, it's got a hint of apricot flavor, goes down very easy. Though it's more of a summer brew than winter.

Will do. Going to stop up at that Wine World near you get some harder to find brews. Spot near me only has limited space, so unless I request it or the younger guy that works there drinks it, I'm forced to travel.

My wallet winces every time I go in that place. There's always something new and tasty looking in the 'limited release' section.

Check the tasting schedule before you go, may be able to catch something good: http://www.mywineworld.com/tastings.php Usually wine, but there's usually at least one or two beer tastings each month.

My local shop has some Samuel Smith Winter Welcome on sale for $3 per bomber. It's last years stock, but should have aged fine for a year. I'll buy one first and try it before I go crazy with too many.

Great find, but I'd definitely try one first. I haven't bought any Sam Smith stuff in years due to it being bottled in clear glass and seeming to me to always taste skunked.
