    Heady Topper! I had one about a year ago but just got ahold of a few 4 packs and man that stuff is smooth. Truly

    Had cigar city moat water last night. Unbelievable. So happy I have anothe bottle of it. Never want it to end.
  13. Olde Hickory Event Horizon - had it for the first time a week or so ago (draft), and it's no doubt my favorite NC stout. Glad I was able to snag a few bottles to see how they compare and age.

    Mean Ol' Tom, from Maine Beer Co... it was a delicious stout with vanilla and coffee tones. Their Peeper Ale was great, too.

    The Bruery Melange #3 - I had this at the Stone 16th Anniversary Beer Festival and then again at the Port Brewing Strong Ale Festival a few weeks ago. Also Pizza Port Barrel Aged Bacon and Eggs is excellent! :)
  19. Tonight will be good. I picked up (another) bottle of Liefmans Goudenband at Wegman's. I love me some sour ales and oud bruins. That aftertaste lingers for a long time.

    The latest Stone Enjoy by 12.21.12 IPA on draft was unreal. Had previous versions in a bottle, but on draft is something special

    Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti was the last to really blow me away.
    World Wide Stout was the one before that.
    It's been a good year for new stouts in my world

    I had this out of the bottle the other night and thought it was one of the worst beers DFH released, IMO. Is it really that great out of the cask?

    In DFH defense, I'm having the Etrusca right now and it's phenomenal.

    Right now, Jose Marti American Porter.
  32. Bourbon Dark Lord :)
  33. There is a big difference between cask and bottle... My cask review (4.58) was 0.53 pts higher than my bottle review (4.05)... I'm a "tough grader," but thought it was fairly epic on cask - I don' t give many 4.58s... I was very scared of the bottled version based on some of what I've heard, but it exceeded expectations... Sorry you didn't enjoy... I haven't had teh Etrusca yet, but I'm looking forward to it...
