Anyone drink these on a regular basis?

I have tried the Hennepin, Abbey Ale, Witt and Rare VOS.  All were very delicious.  Out of all of them I probably like the Abbey Ale the least(but still liked it).  I found that the high alcohol seemed to really bust through whereas with other higher ABV beers it doesn't as much.

I have gotten in the habit of grabbing a bottle or two of these when I cross the border.  I'm never dissapointed.  What about the other ones...what is good?

Thanks

I liked the Hennepin. They come out with a new beer called Ommegeddon that I've have been wanting to try... haven't seen it in any of the stores yet.

I haven't had a Ommegang that I haven't liked yet.  I ended up turning down the Ommegedon cause it was like 10 bucks.  I will get some next time I'm there I think...I just had abunch of expensive stuff so it didn't make the cut.

Punchdrunk31:  You should give it another chance...maybe you had a skunky bottle.

Great brewery. Although the Ommegang is a little syrupy for me.

Very good beer. Took a tour of their Cooperstown-area Brewery and it was a lot of fun.

Some of their beers are as stron as wine.
