13.99 for a 6 pack of The Fear. Good deal?
Tried the Great Divide Hercules tonight, had the Southern Tier Oak Aged Unearthly last weekend, this is a tough call, but i'm going opposite of Double and saying the un-earthly is slightly better because of the oak aged deliciousness. Both are very good.

New Belgium Red Hoptober
I must say, it really depends on the temperature of this beer when it comes to what you taste. When it's on the colder side, grassy hops are the theme, malt is chocolatey but sutble. When you exhale through your nose the chocolate is more apparent. When it's warmed up, the malt becomes the overwhelming theme, which is great, you even start to taste a lot of caramel. Drink this beer at close to room temperature. Body is light, silky, fairly dry. After going through the big-bad Fall beers, this just isn't among the elite. I do enjoy the chocolate malt in a hoppy beer though, it's good when it's on the warmer side. Absolutely aging one of these bad boys for a couple years hoping that the strength of the chocolate/caramel flavor quadruples.

Troegs HopBack Amber Ale vs. New Belgium Red Hoptober Amber Ale
(Review for the Hoptober is a few posts above)
The HopBack's aroma is mandarin orange up front with a touch of caramel. Usually don't get much of an aroma out of these, this is the best one so far. Wow, the flavor is ENORMOUS for an amber ale. Troegs punches me in the face again. Hops are flourishing across the board. An extremely well balanced citrus, earth, pine and grass -- hot damn. Body stays strong, it seems like it will tail off in to something light, but it doesn't in the end. Caramel malt is a nice and chill backbone. This crushes every Amber I've had, it comes off as an extremely well done American Pale Ale. Hoptober never stood a chance. This is a must-buy I think.

Man, this is a great thread. Always new posts about great beers on the regular! ....
Anyways, I've never had a Scottish Ale before until this past weekend at the NOVA Fall Brewfest.
Devil's Backbone Kilt Flasher (great label art, haha):
It was GREAT and the standout of the fest for me and my buddy. It was rich, but the right balance - it was not overly sweet at all. I found a review that can wordsmith the details better than I can:
The Devil's Backbone rep said that it will be in northern VA Total Wine stores in the coming weeks.
You can't measure passion for the game.
