  1. I actually became a member in 2006, but I sucked off until now. Anyway, it wasn't until this last month that I became active, and I love it. I love being part of the community, and I love checking in on a daily basis - I LOVE being a beer advocater. So here is to my first trade, and I cant wait until I taste Heady. Cheers!

    Disregard if your post was sarcasm (you'd think I would be able to tell haha) but if the Port Wipeout review is an indication, I think a book of beer reviews in which no characteristics of the beer are given, the reviewer refers to himself liberally in the third person, and advice unrelated to beer is included, is not the best idea.

  11. I thank you for pointing me to Raul's reviews. Love them. As an unabashed Rickey Henderson fan, I am loving the use of third person (referring to himself) used throughout the reviews. Always cracks me up.

    I just checked them out. I need to borrow some of his creativity.

    Cheers to his first beer trade.
  13. No sarcasm here, friend. I find them hilarious.

    You know what I find funny is people said now that hads is counted in beer ratings people would throw of the balance by having all 1s or 5s, then I saw this guys reviews, and it just proves that the same can be done from the review side of the argument.

    Oh man these are straight gold nuggets. Por ejemplo: Upon first inspection it looked ok. Smell? Lacking to hints of nasty. Taste? Oh my... I'm more than certain the last time they cleaned the taps was when Bonds hat size was still a 14 and Jeff Kent broke his wrist 'washing his truck.'

    dem reviews b poopy
  18. "If this beer deserves a 100, Then Twilight derserves a Oscar" While not very informational about the beer, if you are reading through reviews they sure are a refreshing change!

    True, but the entertainment value outweighs the poopiness :)
  20. Seriously after reading some of those reviews I must say... Mr. Raul, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    For whatever reason, I actually post less than when we were on the old site. I had well over 1000 posts before.
  22. Because you are too busy taking a new avatar picture each day? :cool:

    I for one am living the reviews. The third person has been in every single one I've read so far and really completes the whole package. Good usable notes given as well. For example, SNPA: "Darn thing smell like a sack of Jedi Cush straight out of Humboldt." Who doesn't love sticking their face in some Jedi Cush?
