I bought a new case today too. Bell's sampler:

Amber Ale
Two Hearted Ale (IPA)
Best Brown Ale
Porter

I had the Best Brown and IPA tonight... good stuff, but I think Bell's really shines with their Stouts (especially the seasonal double cream and Java).

Why would you use Terminator to name a Stout? I thought all the -ator beers were double bocks (Salvator, Optimator, Celebrator, etc.). I always figured Temrinator would be a good choice. You could have a picture of Arnold and a catch phrase "I'll Be Bock".

I'm bumping my ancient thread since it's probably the best time of year for beer. I just picked up a case of Anchor Christmas - one of my favorites every year. I also still have a half case of Weyerbacher's big beers (highly recommended: couple of imperial stouts, a barley wine, and a belgian triple style). I'll probably also do a group buy thing with people in the office like we did last year - all seasonals. Anybody else stocking up?

Oh crap. Well nothing in my refrigerator since I've got two weeks of finals, but I do have quite a bit waiting to be opened at exactly 11:31am next Friday

Mostly IPA's, same that I've mentioned before...really looking forward to the
Terminal Gravity, Inversion, Avery, and 90 minute IPA
Dazed and Confused will be tried
40 of Mickeys

If you like IPAs, you should try Victory Hop Devil, and they have a seasonal called Hop Wallop that is 8.5%. Great brewery.

so since this thread was revived i chilled a dogfish head chicory stout and cracked it open

initial impression: same as the last one...there are better stouts out there. Tantalizing, but doesn't quite deliver the taste I expect

I gotta say, Whiskers has it good over in England. I still remember being able to order an Old Speckeled Hen at a little stand at Victoria's Station. Not too many train stations in the USA where you can get something like that... As for Belgians, there is a killer restaurant in Soho called Belgos that had any Belgian you could ever want. I want to go back there...
