    barleywines are cool, in that there is a pretty wide range.... could end up with some radically different interpretations.... I like this idea

    As long as we limit the BU:GU ratio to 1:2, I'm down for barleywine.

    There are currently five willing to participate. Maybe we will get a few more if we keep bumping. Here are the ideas I've heard so far: Stout, Dopplebock, Barleywine. I think we could also add: Porter, Strong Ale, Belgian Strong Ale (triple or quad).

    I would also add that if this works out maybe we should do more beer swap threads. I think there could be some really cool threads about some of the beers identified in this thread.

    And we better decide quick. I'm brewing a delirium tremens clone this weekend and probably an oaked dragon's milk a couple weeks after that.

    Oh, you're for sure in? Not being a smart ass, just thought you were waiting for the style before you decided.

    I'm not sure we are any closer to coming to a conclusion on a style here. So, what do you guys think about a Belgian Triple or Quad or a Stout? Both are good winter warmers, both I think age well and you can do a lot with making them unique.

    Agreed. Just pick one and let's get going.

    stout as a fist choice. tripel would be cool too, though. never had a quad, so i'm not sure if i want to brew a whole batch of it.

    Then go try a quad. I mean right now. Drop everything you're doing and go.
