Steel Toe BA beer

Discussion in 'US - Midwest' started by ToadiesForCody, Mar 24, 2014.

  1. In and out in three minutes, no problem.

    Well into my first bottle, and definitely liking this batch better than the first. I enjoyed the first, but thought it was a bit hot and rough around the edges out of the gate. This batch is drinking much smoother, and also seems a bit sweeter than the first. Really don't see where this one will need any cellaring.

    Enjoy, everyone!

    That was really smooth and easy to get your bottles. What a great beer (when it warms up a bit)!

    If only there was a joke here...
  4. How dare you, sir! I'll have you know this is a reputable forum for those who enjoy advocating beer. If you care to indulge in that brand of bawdy humor, my understanding is that you might find 75% of the content on the remainder of the internet more to your liking. I demand satisfaction!

    Hold on, just had another swig of Before the Dawn. All good now.
  5. Ended up having to be fast so I'm sorry I didn't find you folks. Had a nice little chat with a local dude named Max who couldn't believe so many people were there.

    really good stuff. Very chocolate-y with some toffee on the finish.

    I thought the barrel blended in very well. I recall 2012 being rather hot as BigDaddyPolite had mentioned.

  8. I had a similar discussion with a dude who showed, up at the bar and ordered a Size 7. I was looking around, bewildered, until I explained to him what was happening. He tried a glass, ordered a bottle. Then another, then called a friend to show up who did the same. By the time they'd left, each had four bottles and a huge grin on their faces.

    I went back and got there around 8. Had no issues getting my bottles and they had a descent amount on the shelf. I suspect after the initial rush that they trickled out and have plenty more.

    Shared a bottle with my buddy last night and he is going today now. I will ask him to ask how much is left.

    Picked up a few bottles and had a pour while we were there. WOW, so much smoother than last year!

    This is great stuff. I'm not big on paying $1/oz of it, but the lady and I split a pour. Very tasty.
  22. Still available as of yesterday evening (bottles that is) -

    Can't emphasize how good this stuff is.
