I may be a baptist, but that doesn't mean I cannot enjoy a good ale on occasion.
Old Rasputin - Imperial Stout
This is an excellent stout. Unlike Guinness, Old Raspy's got a slightly sweeter flavor. Still, its quite a thick beverage and at 9% alcohol, packs a wallop. Raspy's are brewed in Fort Bragg, in Northern California. Thanks to Dan and Joe for introducing me to this fine brew.
Boddington's Pub Ale
Smoothest pub ale I've had so far. Perfect with just about anything. Lighter in color and heft then other pub ales, it quenches the thirst and makes a perfect companion to italian food as I found out at Vito's!Thanks to Herb for bringing over a 4 pack one evening.
Newcastle Brown Ale
I cannot recall where I first had a Newcastle, however, it has become one of my favorite beers. Especially good with crab curry and other ethnic dishes, I often have one after work while eating dinner with my wife. Newkies have a bit more intense flavor than a Boddington's and seem a bit less refined, however, I find myself craving them.
Got a favorite? Pst a comment and I'll try it out.
