This isn't my favorite beer or something I'd drink often, but I'd say the most interesting seasonal I've ever had -- Ska's Autumnal Mole Stout, with cocoa, spices and chile peppers. Went down well with the delicious birria (Mexican lamb stew) tacos on homemade corn tortillas at the release party on Friday. Yum-my!!! Love the artwork on the can, too. Good description of the beer here:

Anyone else had any good seasonals?

:-" Dogfish head punkin ale. It's 7% and made with nutmeg, brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice and I think a couple other things but its delicious and great for cool fall nights.

I really enjoy Ubu Ale, 7%, rich brown color and smooth :)

+1 and Mercenary, St. Lupalin (sp?) was fantastic too.

Odell just does a wicked fantastic job
I have been to the top of the mountain, and it is good

Uncorked a bottle of Elevation Beer Co. (Poncha Springs, CO) Signal de Botrange on Saturday, my friends loved it and were wishing I had brought back a lot more from my recent visit to the brewery.

Hmm, that reminds me that I need to add a barf smilie to the forum!

Now, now, Bill. Let's not be beer snobs. [-X

You see, Bill, beer is like women. Everyone likes to brag about the favorites they've had, but we all, secretly, have an appreciation for the cheap and readily available.

And I like Coors because it's easy to make at home. All you need, is a can of budweiser and some tap water!

I am a serious hop head. IPA, Pale Ales, Extra Pale Ales, Belgian Style Ales are usually what I order everywhere. My favorite is usually the O'Dells IPA, however there is nothing like seeing something on a menu you have never seen or heard of and ordering it.

A great place to do that in is the Cheeky Monk and if you have not been to any of the Cheeky Monk locations I highly recommend visiting. They have beer, on tap and bottled, that will change your life.
Everyday is an opportunity.

When I was out climbing a month ago. I stopped in at the True Grit Cafe. I tried the Silverton Gold Lager. Man is that good. So... I called the brewry to see if they could ship me some home in cans or bottles. NOT!!! So I got to wait for another trip. Two thumbs up.
