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

Premium bitter, Imperial Amber, BVIP, Dubbel and maybe 1988 Opus One (if I decide to open it.)
CH3CH2OH - Without it, life itself would be impossible.

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.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

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!
