  3. Finished w/an amazing (if slightly, and unintentionally-infected) Block 15 Figgy Pudding....toasted with Freixenet Brut at midnight...drinking...we'll see, for the rest of the night
  4. Wake and Bake. It was effortless and natural. Coffee is more interesting than hops this year. Unless some new shit happens.

    Black xantus... Interesting malty backbone with bourbon and wine barrel layers. Actually it was quite nice.

    Founders Bolt Cutter. I don't understand the antihype; I think it's really enjoyable.

    2011 Bourbon County Coffee Stout carried me into 2013 and then opened an O'so Night Train. Not impressed with the latter. Gonna grab a Lagunitas Sucks to finish this off right.
