    Great time as always, and in the words of a great man the company and good times far exceeded the beers we drank.

    honestly everything in that lineup was very good. Notable IMO, the pappy black magick was better than rare, the gratitudes are still drinking amazingly, the mornin delight was quite awesome, and I've come to the conclusion that if I had to drink 1 beer for the rest of my life it would probably be the de cam lambiek special. Just my opinions of course, I'm sure the others can chime in.

    I had one of these on my camping trip this weekend. It was drinkable from what I remember, but then again I was already "white girl wasted" whenever I drank it.

    1 person, 3 costume changes to get around the beer limits? or just 3 really good friends.

    Also, beers were not tasted blind, so your results are invalid.

    Red twizzlers? Once you go black, you never go back.

    Need better angle of Brett as his hair doubles as a barometer.

    I thought you were conducting a serious beer tasting, but I see you're just wasting perfectly good bratwurst marinade.

    My conclusion is Mornin' Delight all day every day. I haven't had a beer that good in a long, long time. All the rare gueuze (courtesy GrumpyoldTroll... who else) was pretty good though the Kasteel Gueuze was a touch disappointing because of the lack of carbonation.

    I agree that the Gratitudes are still drinking pretty good. The '06 was a standout for the majority of the group I think. And to echo your sentiment, GI Rare is starting on a slow, steady decline. Technically, according to Goose Island, the beer is nearing its end (5 years, base beer brewed in '08) so the brewers over their have a pretty good handle on the timing/aging of their beers it seems.
