Avery's Hog Heaven in probably my favorite.

+1

I had a bottle of AHH last weekend and I think it's on the top of my list of favorites.

Mine as well Euge, I have that every time I visit the brewery. And whenever I see it on
the shelves, gotta come home with me....and I brewed a clone that needs to be more
malty but otherwise is pretty close....

This is a beer style that is somewhat new to me, but I've found that I really enjoy it (and would like to explore it more). Any good recommendations, and do you know of any that are aged in wood before bottling? Thanks much!

Just had an Eel River Triple Exhaltation Old Ale, 9.7%ABV, which is certified all-organic.  Beautiful dark ruby color, rich carmelly nose, tasting of roasted plums and packs quite a kick.  Try it!
