Just had Bell's Double Cream Stout. Very smooth and very good. Also, finally found ST Oatmeal Stout. Will be enjoying that this weekend.

Purchased the early Spring variety pack from Pyramid (I've talked about them before... west coast brewery).

Discord Dark IPA - a little rough... might have been because I wasn't in an IPA mood
Red Ale - really good for a red ale
Honey Lager - meh

I typically really like Pyramid's stuff, but outside of the red, this pack was a rare miss by them.

St bernardus brings it every time. Whenever I get a kegerator, hooking up a sixtel of their abt 12 is the first thing I'm doing.

ST Imperial Choklat Stout
Mission Dark Seas Russian Imperial Stout

Had a huge dinner at Donato's tonight (which was so-so...bland food), so I don't even know if I should open one. Was planning to, in order to try for the fifth time to finish watching Man Behind the Sun without falling asleep.

Dude, I just totally triple threaded: Beer thread, Restaurant thread, Movie thread.

Yep. Unfortunately, the Jiggle in Monroeville was out of it. Did, though, also pick up a Sam Smith's Oatmeal Stout and a 6 of Old Peculier. I'm sensing lunch drinking for the Pens game tomorrow.

Not sure. Where I got it last week, it was not in the "seasonal" section, but I hadn't seen it there before.

Of the the three Saisons, I would rank them:

Hennepin
Foret
Dupont

The NY state one on top; go figure.

I had never tried the Founders Breakfast Stout, so I picked up a 4-pack last night at Giant Iggle...

I think the hardest thing for a stout with a chocolate flavor is getting the right chocolate flavor...and then not overdoing it. This is about as perfect as you can get. I think the oats balance out the chocolate/coffee flavors and make it infinitely drinkable...even at 8.3%.

Going to enjoy the other 2 tonight.

For having an 8%+ ABV and doing the right amount of chocolate, Founders Breakfast nails it. Had it down at Roland's a few weeks ago on tap. Young's Double Chocolate Stout is another solid choice. They don't overdo the chocolate and the ABV isn't that high, somewhere around 5-5.5.%

I've only seen this on tap and in the can, but never in a bottle.

Never seen Youngs in a bottle? Surprising.

Hoping I'll be able to get Kentucky Breakfast Stout this year.
