CU Beer Weekend Dec. 4

Winter seems close, today is cold. The 10 day outlook on doesn't have highs above 39, with some lows in the teens. So, it's going to be cold. That calls for beer. It calls for a winter warmer, or something thick, and with a relatively high ABV so that at least you feel warm.
