    Just finished packing up my box. A little over 200oz of barrel aged liquids, plus some extras that aren't barrel aged to give your palate a break ;)

    Will be heading to a state where its the reverse letter abbreviation of what Santa says and also a name for a women that bangs a lot.

    Glad it all got there safely, Enjoy! I'll get a swag box out to you next week after I hit up releases on the 6th and 8th. In fact I'll be getting swag out to you and people I owe swag to in two other BIFs.

    an awesome box of mostly foreign barrel aged beers arrived safe and sound yesterday:

    Girardin Faro (never had)
    8 Wired Batch 31 BA Imp Coffee Stout (never had, sounds delicious)
    3F Oude Gueuze (green label)
    Cantillon Mamouche (want, i LOVE this beer)
    The Bruery White Chocolate (want, never tried)
    3F Oude Gueuze Golden Blend (great beer)
    HaandBryggeriet Haandbakk (never heard of this)
    Cantillon 100% Kriek Bio (mmm 'loons)
    B Nektar Dark Dark Goose (the description of this is INSANE)
    Surly Darkness tulip (awesome)

    I never know what to expect from BIFs and you seriously crushed it man. Half of these beers I've never had and a couple of them I've never even heard of. Very thoughtful and well planned box, thank you!

    Picture up next.

  21. Glad everything arrived safely! Hope you enjoy! Sorry it's not destroying the OZ requirements, but I really wanted it to be about quality, not quantity. :)

    Cheers!

    NJOssie Savant (265) New Jersey Feb 28, 2012

    Still no clue who is sending to me... will continue to look out next week!
  27. Ditto!
  28. I've been MIA for a bit. First off, great boxes, guys. Everyone has sent a stellar box. I will be following suit.

    Also, I just put that Parabola work shirt on my Christmas list. That is sick.

    I was waiting for a want to drop here locally, which did, before I shipped. I'm shipping out tomorrow to a BA who recently changed his avatar. Os, you are not my target.

    NJOssie Savant (265) New Jersey Feb 28, 2012

  31. Ungertaker

    Ungertaker Savant (460) Minnesota Apr 30, 2010

    You are one of two left to be eliminated (based on everyone's hints). Hopefully that RB is AP and the target of said box is me!

    My box went out yesterday. I don't know how many bottles, or how many oz's or how many wants. Actually I know that there were a number of wants. It is going west to a BA who's box landed last week.
