Both the Early Bird Breakfast and Where the Buffalo Roam are legit.
I did a side by side with Where the Buffalo Roam and DDC Solstice d'Hiver bourbon and there was no doubt.....Where the Buffalo roam was head and shoulders above it.
Also, at $7.25 and $7 each.....great value.
Quite intrigued by these. Cameron's is a weird brewery in my eyes, sometimes I forget they exist, and other times they release truly excellent beers. They've had success with barrel aging before, Obsidian and Deviator Oak Aged were very good. RPA was a regular go-to for me. They release some knockouts, but then seem to go for stretches at a time just pushing the core lineup with a few "meh" specialty packs (their Black Forest was just a repackaged Dark 266 for instance). The rebranding of their core lineup seemed like the perfect opportunity to can the RPA, but it seems to be discontinued for the time being. Hopefully these new barley wines are a sign of some more exciting things to come...
