    Since its the season for bock, try the Anchor Bock. Its excellent. The Old Foghorn is liquid insanity. 9.9% alcohol.

    Thanks for the tips. I'll check them out.

    The first taste ("La mise en bouche" as we say here), was surprising. I thought the flowery taste was a tad overwhelming, then I got used to it.

    The prices are steep, but I've only recently started getting interested in beers so I want to try as many as possible to know what my preferences are. I have my Belgian connection via my neighbour who's from Belgium and goes there quite often, and I'm trying to get a German connection going via a coworker who's from Alsace. So I use that site to try stuff I'll find nowhere else.

    High ABV doesn't turn me off as long as it's balanced. A lot of the Belgian ales are in that vicinity.

    The site was promoting the Anchor Humming Ale the other day so I was wondering about that brewery. I'll try the Anchor Bock. :thumbsup:

    It's only in the last few years that I've started appreciating hoppier beers. And even now I think a lot of IPAs are overhopped.

    But I've always loved malty beers. Doppelbocks, marzens, Vienna lagers, altbiers, and Irish Reds. In fact I still consider my favorite style to be brown ales. Give me a Samuel Smith's Nut Brown, a Sierra Nevada Tumbler, or (one of my all time faves) a Brooklyn Brown Ale, and I'll be a happy man.

    If you think Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale was overwhelming, then you might want to steer clear of an American IPAs. Hops-wise, they put that pale ale to shame.

    I've probably mentioned this to you in the past, but you need to try and get your hands on some beers from Unibroue, a Montreal-based brewery. They brew Belgian-ish beers. They don't follow Belgian styles to a tee, but there's a very strong Belgian influence on their beers. They ferment with Belgian trappist yeast strains, and bottle condition their beers the same way the Belgians do. It's good stuff.

    That's rather attractive to me

    I'm going to try them just to know what they taste like.

    You did. I haven't found them at any of the sites I visit yet.

    Super hopped IPA's have absolutely destroyed my palate. I have little interest outside of IPA's now.

    If you like brown ale try the Raison D'Etre by Dogfish head. I love the 60 minute IPA so I thought I'd give it a shot. It's a little sweet for me but if you like brown ale you should enjoy it. It's a deep mahogany ale brewed with belgian beer, sugars, green raisins and a sense of purpose. Plus it's 8% so it has a kick.

    I really enjoy hoppy beers, but I'm still a malthead at heart.

    That's more of a Belgian style brown. I prefer English/American browns. There's some sweetness to them, but it's countered by the astringency from the dark malts. I can drink a beer like Samuel Smith's Nut Brown all day long.

    Just had 2 Flying Dogs.

    First any beer that has labels drawn by Ralph Steadman gets major brownie points. Those labels are awesome!

    I had the Snake Dog IPA and the Doggie Style Classic Pale Ale (which really reminded me of the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale). I prefer the IPA which is a beer I could drink all night.

    Oh man, please offer recommendations for the maltier brews. I love that non-alc "Kaliber" from Guiness...it's a malty beverage without any heart.

    Please share.

    I recommend you grab a tall, cold bottle of go f*ck yourself.

    After you do that, try:

    Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale
    Samuel Smith's Tadcaster "Taddy" Porter
    Sierra Nevada Tumbler
    Brooklyn Brown Ale
    Young's Double Chocolate Stout
    Paulaner Celebrator
    Yuengling Black and Tan
    Spaten Oktoberfest
    Belhaven Scottish Ale
    And I'll even go with a guilty pleasure, Negro Modelo

    Just a few off the top of my head.
