Rogue Shakespeare Stout. Really good. I've had 3 pints of it so far, and it gets better every time.

Elysium Brewing Company seasonal Pumpkin Ale. Yummy. One of the best ways to eat pumpkin, IMO.

Arrogant Bastard Ale. It's not as good as it pretends to be. It screams out two notes, very loudly, with otherwise nothing of interest. Musically, it's some wannabe punk rocker screaming into a mike and pretending that it's "edgy" and "real".

Black Boss Porter. Three notes of taste, two of nose. Nicely dark, but otherwise, kind of boring. Not very smooth.

About a dozen different IPAs, so far. Too pale, too thin, too watery, and usually too pissy. I suppose it used to be once was a good way to sterilize, store, and serve water in a high-disease high-temperature tropical third world hellhole, which is how the British got a taste for the stuff when they were running an Empire in India, but, like the "Gin and Tonic" for malaria, the time for the need for the stuff is past. A decent charcoal filter does the same job, better.
