Ah yes, that's some excellent stuff. It's more so on the expensive side for some of us who don't have Three Floyds as a regular fixture in our liquor stores (ahem, California), but well worth every penny. Some great alternatives we have on the Left Coast are Stone Russian Imperial Stout, Avery Mephistopheles, Alesmith Speedway Stout, Old Rasputin, and Deschutes Abyss, just to name a few.

Speaking of burgers, I found out we had Five Guys in California and actually there are a few locations here. Good stuff, but I'm partial to the local Tommy's, The Apple Pan, and In-N-Out as the best fast food burgers. There's also a wonderful local establishment called Monk's Charbugers in the South Bay that make some excellent burgers and a bunch of other fantastic fast food items. :-L

I'm now curious to try a Hot n Now and White Castle if/when I head back east.

I"d never heard of Five Guys before this thread, and low and behold, while I was out birthday shopping today in Hamilton Town Center, I spot one. I'm going to grab a couple of friends and check it out soon.

Yeah, their fries are tremendous, but I can also say that about several local places off the top of my head. Their burgers are good, just don't expect incredible.

I was across the street at
Claire's Boutique
and that's exactly what the girl who worked there said. Burgers are OK but the fries were full of awesome.

I have Stone IRS in my fridge right now. It's my favorite beer that I've ever tasted so far. I had a buddy send me some of the Alesmith SWS. I personally thought the alcohol overpowered the other flavors, had a long funny tasting finish to it. Didn't like it so much. The Goose Island Bourbon Stout was just a bit too harsh for me too.

I've had the Speedway Stout Nitro on draft and it's more complete than the bottle. You really can taste the espresso tones better in draft and so, I'll say there's more of a difference from draft to bottle than other stouts I can recall; the Alesmith SWS is a pretty straightforward brew for the style. The Stone RIS has the edge in drinkability and is more complex than the Speedway Stout.

I found some Peche Mortel through a friend and it's another outstanding stout.
