    Let's get a thread going on those.

    Had Perrin Lil Gris tonight.

    Had Redline Brewing SRT 12.5 last night, only available in Burton at Redline. Friend is mug club member there. 12.5% ABV...sweet with honey, but that distinct taste of aged in a barrel.

    I missed out on the limited run Rochester Mills did of four can packs. They only released 5,000 four packs :/.

    What else is good out there?

    Backwoods Bastard. KBS isn't bad either. Lagunitas makes one that is very good. Plead the 5th and Black Note. Curmudgeon. Can't find some of this stuff all the time. And of a course, a Dragon's Milk once in a while.

    I really like Tweak but the price is a bit much for me. I can buy some solid 10 year old Bourbon for the price of two of those bottles. The Avery Vanilla Bean Stout is quite tasty and nearly half the price. Not nearly as much barrel and alcohol but still really good.

    Dragons Milk is pretty good, but at about $15 for a 4-pk of 12-oz bottles, you can almost buy a fifth of Buffalo Trace and a 40 of PBR.

    After enough of the Buffalo Trace, you won't even notice the beer is PBR, lol.
