On the palate Samuel Adams® Winter Lager is rich and full bodied, robust and warming, a wonderful way to enjoy the cold evenings that come with this season.

    Brought home a six pack and it was gone before the night was over. Couldn't believe I had drank all six of them, but them "The Boss" admitted that she drank two of them and she liked it so much, she drove to the store to buy another six pack the next day.

    Now I don't know if it would be a beer I would drink all the time, but it really hit the spot the other weekend.
    One of my local watering holes had this on special last week, and I tried a few. Not bad at all.

    You know I could never get my father-in-law to drink what I call good beer. He drank Old Milwaukee or Bud Light and wouldn't even try one of the beers I would bring over to his home at times. He just felt it wasn't worth the money to drink good beer. Now if it were a quality steak he was all over it, but good beer never and I could never figure that out.
    Miss him a lot!

    Liquor barn has it in the 5L mini kegs, so I'm guessing they have it in the bottle too. Hope you like hops. This is an excellent IPA. Pazzos has it on tap.


    I am currently enjoying Fonseca Bin #27 Porto. Perfect for a snow-in. Deep ruby color, distinctive plum and cherry flavor and a little sweet raisin. Full body with good sweet alcohol finish.

    Bought a six pack of the new Sam Adams seasonal collection for the SuperBowl. It's called Noble Pils, and it's pretty good. My favorites are the Spring and Summer ale collection.

    I've found that Ky Ale leaves something to be desired. Such as flavor.

Could someone please explain to me what is up with the whole wine in a box thing?
    The wife and I usually purchase a box of wine every week, it's much more affordable. Most of the cheaper wines run around $9 ofr a 750ml. A box contains four 750's and you will usually only spend between $16-20. It's much cheaper for the packaging so it's a pretty good value. Right now I'm sipping on Turning Leaf Reserve, 2007 Pinot Noir. It has hints of Black Cherry, Cinnamon and Rasberry. Pretty good stuff.

    It's ok, no better. On the other hand, the Kentucky Bourbon Ale is atrocious. I've had stale vomit tastes trapped in my mouth after a hard night of partying (in my youth of course) that tasted better jmo.

    I'm having a glass of 2008 Mark West Pinot Noir. Cheap, but not bad at all.

    I disagree. I'm a fan of the Bourbon Barrel Ale.

    Same here. Had it for the 1st time this past summer at a pub in Paris. Very smooth.

    I definitely tend toward the dry wines.
