Well, I picked up a 750 of it from Sendik's last night, so maybe I'll give it a year or so in the cellar and crack it out for Xmas next year and report back.

Had it last weekend - it's average. I just don't think Founders does a good job with barrel aged stouts. KBS nor CBS is that great.

They are one of my top 3 breweries but this style is not great.
But I like to throw handfuls...

+1 KBS and CBS are very overrated, CBS more so. Great brewery but their barrel program needs some work.

AFAIK, no just the stout.

Unpopular opinion coming.  I will take the Barrel Program at Central Waters over both.

I don't see that as unpopular. I see it as you recognizing quality.

New Holland Brewing Company, limited batch, Caramel Salt Dragon's Milk.     Regular Dragon's Milk is a bourbon barrel stout.     

Initial flavor is the Caramel, then the bourbon hits the back of your throat, then the salt lingers just a bit.    11.5% ABV.

Anyone try Jameson Irish whiskey Caskmates (finished in IPA barrels).  I'm not a fan of IPA's (trend toward the malty side of the scale)  but was curious as to what it might add to whiskey.

Has anyone had any experience with any Brooklyn Brew Shop home brew kits? I've got the Everyday IPA kit mash going on the stove right now while sipping on some New Belgium Voodoo Ranger. The last kit I used came out tolerable but far from good. I'm hoping this is a better recipe. Well, that, and hopefully I'm getting a little better at this with each batch.
That's a nice doll you have there Frank.

Yeah thanks, she's ok.

Yes it's terrible tastes watery. And considering Jameson isn't exactly full of flavor already that's saying something.

We must be drinking different Jamesons. Whenever I have it, it tastes like Murphy's, Marquette Gyro, and bad decisions all wrapped into one drink.

That's what I used the first (and so far only) time I brewed. Wasn't perfect, but I was satisfied. Being my first time, I can't put any blame on the ingredients.

Yeah your memories of Jameson started wayyyy later in life than mine. To me it's medicine for a cold. Hot Toddy's for the win!

Anyone have thoughts on 3 Sheeps? I haven't tried them yet, but I was looking into to who was making some new/good beer in MKE & Wisconsin and came across them.

3 Sheeps Cashmere Hammer (nitro in the bottle!), Uber Joe and Roll out the Barrel (Chardonnay version) are excellent IMO

Check out Third Space and Good City if you haven't already. Third Space makes some fun stuff, and GC makes some solid APA/IPAs.

Outside of the area, I'm super intrigued by Untitled Art. Some of the styles are a little out there, but the beers I've had from them have been good. Price point is high, though.

Thanks, Untitled Art looks right up my alley and I'll definitely check out Third Space too.

Pretty sure that one has been discontinued.

Raised Grain in Waukesha makes some of the best beers around town of the newer breweries. It might sound odd but the peanut butter porter from Westallion isn't bad.

Bummer!  That was the one beer of theirs I liked.

Stopped by this past winter.  Good stuff.  I especially liked the Paid Time Off (coconut / black walnut) though it may be gone now.  But lots of other good brews too.
