Hope you feel better soon, Don.My lack of posts in this thread is the direct result of an ongoing "mini-plague" at the Black Adder household. Just haven't found beer or food very appealing the last few weeks. Anyway...

George Hunter Dark Chocolate Stout from Castle Danger. 8%. Dark chocolate and coffee with an underlying lactose sweetness. Nothing to really set it apart from other milk stouts. I tried, but I really couldn't get a good can label photo.
Oh, me too. Thanks Eric.Hope you feel better soon, Don.
I've not tried that one but I'm a big fan of their 2 X IPA (8.2%)View attachment 1603489
I think this is my first beer from Southern Tier. Had the unmistakable lactose sweetness of a milk stout, and really did taste like Bailey's Irish Creme. Pleasantly inviting on the nose, smooth and creamy. Mild at 5.8%. I'd try it as a single first before buying a pack.
Hope you’re feeling better. I’m so far behind, I’ll never be approved for the 2024. I think I’ve had 8 beers all year so far.Oh, me too. Thanks Eric.
I'm falling behind... at this rate, I'll never earn enough credits to graduate in to the 2024 thread.

It’s not bad. Sweet but not cloying so. The Vanilla really comes through. That’s the only beer I had before going to bed. Haven’t been feeling 100% myself. I’m starting off today with this, Anderson Valley Bourbon Barrel Stout. First impressions are ok. It’s kind of one dimensional, I get the stout but not the barrel aging in the taste. Interesting that the van says aged for 6mo and the box says aged for 3mo. I’d drink it again, but wouldn’t go out of my way to find it.What did you think of French Toast Bastard?
