    Hoogstraten Poorter. Good beer, if a little thinner than I would expect out of a porter. Bready and malty with a nice belgian yeast funk. Mostly, though, it has the coolest bottle I've seen.

    I'll be in beer heaven the next two weeks...its my birthday next sat so I'll be treating myself and roommate from school.

    PtE and Blind Big are enroute to my apartment. Will crack out some of my limited beer cellar. Nothing amazing but maybe WWS or a 2010 Big Foot.

    Then off to vermont on the 17th to acquire as much heady as possible and to refill my swing tops at HF and possibly try to get to lawsons.

    It's time for my annual road trip to get my all-time favorite beer: Great Lakes Christmas Ale (aka Christmas Crack!)

    Bohemia chocolate stout. If you can find it, and its cheap, its definitely worth checking out. For $1 a pop down here its going to be my go to from now on.

    I was just in the neighborhood of the brewery the other day. Christmas Ale was a'brewin'... it's one of the greatest smells of all time. GLBC Christmas Ale has basically inspired a sub-genre of the winter warmer around here. Hoping to do a taste test of GLBC Xmas Ale, Thirsty Dog 12 Dogs of Xmas, Fat Head's Holly Jolly Xmas Ale, and Market Garden Festivus Ale before the end of the season. Have to start procuring the goods (and hold off on drinking them)!

    ^Liefmans or Oude Boon are in a different league, imo.

    You sir are a lucky man. In NJ it's a couple hour ride to find a store that even carries the product, never mind smelling it brewing! Interested in purchasing it in bulk and sending it to me LOL.

    Quite a few of the christmas ales are great, but as I said, the GLBC X-Mas ale, is by far the best beer I've ever had!

    The Belgians are the best brewers out there I personally think.

    I know it's not special but readily available in grocery stores :D
    Still better then most Dutch beers as most lack some kind of "depth" of some sort..
