Xmas Brews Ready?

All I'm seeing on this newsgroup is invites to see Brittney Spears nude, and other spam shit like that.
I thought I'd get a conversation /thread going. I've got 2 by 20 litre kegs gassed and chilled in the fridge, 2 dozen bottles of cider, and 3 by 20 litres in the fermenters settling, ready for kegging.
Damned hot here in Townsville.

I think I read that these Britney and Christina pics are viruses, too....
For Christmas (and my party tomorrow), I've got my English-style barleywine, from 2001, and some strong scotch ale.
And then there the meads: a cherry/cinnamon mead, a plum mead, and a strawberry mead.

I also have almost a case of 2001-vintage English Barleywine ready to go. Also, I have my 14-month old Arrogant Bastard clone and a 20-month old APA.
I just did an Imperial Stout for Christmas, 2004. It weighed in at 1.094 OG and it has been in the primary for 2 weeks. Maybe I should put that away until Christmas, 2005 and try something else for next year?
Mmmmmm, mead. I haven't done one of those in a long time. Any recomendatiosn for a mead that will be primed for the 2004 holidays? So far, I have only done traditional meads, so I'd like to "spread my wings" a little.

I just got a brewing kit earlier this year as a present. Never had the inclination to make my own brew before, but tomorrow I'll be opening my 4th homebrew thus far for an x-mas party we're having.
A Strong Christmas Ale, made with oranges, cloves, cinammon, etc.. Tasted it last night and was very pleasantly suprised

My Christmas mead (called "Dragon's Blood") consists of 15 pounds of honey, 11.5 pounds of bing cherries, .5 ounces of cinnamon stick and Pasteur Dry Champagne yeast. The volume of the primary is 5 gallons. Add the cherries and cinnamon after racking to secondary.
Make it soon; a year isn't much time.
