Is the Santa's Helper a Rogue Clone? I tried that beer for the first time recently and really like it.

Nope, it's my own kinda "Uber alt".  The Rogue beer is Santa's Private Reserve.

My "holiday" spiced dubbel, and probably a bottle or two of 23% barleywine.

And a vertical tasting ('07, '08, '09) of Trader Joe's Unibroue-brewed holiday release, but that's probably going to happen New Year's Eve, assuming I can get off work.

Not a whole lot really set up, but I'm planning to keg a cascade IPA tonight, maybe it will be ready by boxing day.

Aside from that, a Westmalle tripel clone attempt (hat tip to Denny) should be carbed this week or so, and I picked up an inexpensive bottle of Aussie tawny port (Penfolds) I plan to sip at Christmas evening.

Lots of good food on the way too.  Cheers!

Currrentlly on tap I have:

Kolsch
Saison
IPA
Tripel
RIS (2006)
Barley Wine (2005)

I am going to put my Christmas beer on today in one of those slots, just can't decide which one (might try to finish off the IPA before church! ;)) The Christmas Ale is a 1.065 OG Saison Noir.

Commercial beers I have a bunch, but specifically bought a six of Bells Double Cream Stout to enjoy around the holidays. I have an Orval in reserve for Christmas Morning.  ;)
