^Better than Sam Smith Oatmeal (which I'm assuming is what the breakfast flavor is)?
post #1203 of 7785
never had that, but will try soon.

had this last night. sort of weird flavor. very bright, tart cherry flavor in a stout. it was just OK. if the cherry flavor was not as prevalent, i would've enjoyed it more.

Give Lost Abbey Judgement Day a shot, it doesn't have cherrys but has raisin and fig notes, so it's fairly similar.

The pricing is weird, one store around had them for over $20, another had some for like $5

How's that Lost Abbey Judgement stack up to Dogfish Raison d'etre? That's the only other raisin beer I've tried.

I haven't tried that one, but the Judgement day is quite good, it's not really a raisin beer, but those notes are quite noticable. Some of their beers have a palate and feel closer to wines, especially the ones with lower carbonation.

Thread reminds me I need to resume my beer consumption. I have several stouts I've had cellaring for a few years. They shold be good by now. Also cracing some Thomas Hardy.

Tooch.....the Harvest Ale is dammmn good. It's too bad they don't make that year round. I bought more regular Breakfast Stout to try to sit on. What's the shelf life on a beer like that.

I have bottles from '08 of the Breakfast Stout, you can sit on it as long as you can hold out, it ages well. Harvest Ale is delicious, I'm glad you got a chance to try it! It was even more amazing over a month ago when it was super fresh...

Apples and oranges. The Sam Smith is a regular oatmeal stout, and the the Founders is a chocolate oatmeal stout.

Does anyone know some widely available and affordable German beers worth trying?

Paulaner and Franziskaner are two of my favorite German breweries and should both be easy to find. The Paulaner Hefeweizen is among the best of the style (that's widely available), and the Franz Dunkelweizen is a great stepping stone into the world of beer that isn't translucent. I hesitate to say 'dark beer' because, despite its color, it really isn't what many beer newcomers consider a 'dark beer'. Cheers! Forgot to post my favorite beer: Malheur 12 First time I had it was on nitro draft in Atlanta, and wowza I was blown away. When I am king, all draft beer will be nitro!
