Ive had all these, probably some on the list ive had at a festival but was random
If I can remember, the ommengang, wasnt too good, not really a porter, not really a stout, just dark.
of all these, I think id go cantillon iris, too bad it goes for about $30 a bottle.
then maybe pliny the younger, the elder is a dime a dozen and shouldnt be on the list.
my favorite should be on here, oude guize
Dime a dozen? **** that. Elder is a world-class beer. Best of the imperial IPA style that I've ever had (and I've had, like, all of them except for Pliny the Younger).
That Ommegang beer, Hennepin, is a farmhouse ale. A weird one too; it tries to be both a saison and a biere de garde at the same time. I don't really care for it.
I can get bottles of 2005 Cantillon Iris for around $13 here in KC. $30 seems crazy expensive to me.
