I've brewed all-grain batches, but I've been using weird grains for my wife, who can't have barley. I'm preparing my first personal all-grain batch today and bought and milled my barley at the shop today. Even though it was a bit warm in my neck of the woods, I found myself driving home with the windows up to fully enjoy the wonderful aroma of freshly milled barley. Like a nice garlic pizza, I hope the barley leaves some aroma in my car for the next few days. !@#$, making beer is a good thing.

Mmmmm....Beer

I'll third this one! When I don't brew and I'm in need of a "barley fix", I find that a bowl of Grape Nuts provides the same wonderful odor. Main ingredients you ask? Malted barley and wheat, of course!
Cheers!

Malted Milkshake

Just for fun, I made milkshakes out of vanilla ice cream, DME, and a handful of kellog's "Smart Start" cereal. It was great!!!! Also, we made shakes out of vanilla ice cream and imperial stout. Also good.

Guinness-shake

Although I haven't tried it yet, I've heard that pouring a Guinness over a couple of scoops of coffee ice cream in a glass makes a pretty mean dessert.

Guinness over ice cream? Sounds sacriligious to me

Yum!

Sounds delicious to me! A buddy bought me a shot called an "Irish car bomb." It was a half pint of Guinness with a shot of Bailey's Irish cream dropped in it and slammed. What you end up with is a boilermaker that tastes like chocolate milk.
