    I recently had a few beers from a brewery in Cooperstown, NY.

    One is Ommegang, a Belgian style Abbey Ale. Really good, comes in a big wine bottle.

    The other is Three Philosophers, a Cherry type ale. Normally I hate cherry beers because they taste like cough syrup, but this one is awesome. Comes in a big bottle like the Ommegang. Those Three Philosophers must have been fucking alcoholics though because that stuff is like 10%ABV.

    The brewery is named Ommegang too. If you can find it try their Hennepin too. Also good.

    Can anyone recommend me a good stout or two? To me there is nothing like a good stout during the cold winter months. I have to admit, Guinness is my guilty pleasure but I would like to broaden my horizons so lets hear em fellas.

    I have been drinking a lot of 3 floyds beers. My favorite is Robert the Bruce. Nice dark stout. I also like Old Rasputin.

    Ommegang's Rare Vos is also quite good.


    I really love Killian's Red and Negra Modelo.

    My current favorite is Lancaster Milk Stout. Has a slight sweetness to it, but not overpoweringly sweet, and doesn't have 150% alcohol. One I tried at a bar but can't track down in any stores is Anderson Valley Oatmeal Stout. Has almost a raisiny taste to it.

    Left Hand Milk Stout

    I tried the Sam Smith but didn't like it.
    I've been wanting to try the Sierra Nevada
    I didn't even know about the Guinness 250 Anniversary - That will be my next purchase.
