    Wel that makes me feel better, I have yet to see any BC yet. I'll believe it's real when I see it!

    I believe BCBVS was only released in 2010 -- I may be wrong -- but thanks to the AB InBev buy out, there should be BCBS near you soon!

    Couldn't even finish it. That was one hellaciously odd tasting beverage. My wife summed it up when she said, "This tastes like beer, mixed with liver."

    Yeah, no thanks. Half a bomber drain poured. Moving on...

    They will never brew Vanilla again because it clogged up the brewhouse lines and they're lazy so they don't want to do the cleanup again. Basically. ;)

    If it's any consolation, if you buy a fresh vanilla bean pod, cut it open, remove the insides, and swirl the pod in your BCBS for ~30 sec (play with the time and see what you like) you can replicate the experience sort of.

    Same as a lot of people on here I got some Hopslam! Working retail and having week days off has it's benefits. Also had a couple beers at Mad Fox earlier which is always good.

    the way the Red Wings have been playing hockey lately is making is hard to hold on to that bottle of 2012 BCBS. Tonights game almost demands more than the Ruthless Rye in my glass.

    Well shit, why the hell not. Smoke em if you got em, right?

    First time ever having Heady. It was everything the hype led me to believe. Yeah, I violated the rule; I don't care. When I get my next can (only had one...), I will respect the instructions. This time, review time, I couldn't resist.

    Last two times I had Heady, I didn't care for it. Then again, I've only had it twice. I need to find other Alchemist beers. I'm sure they're out there.

    1/10/12 Lost Abbey Judgment Day Quadruple: Infected...


    Raisin nose, but a sour cherry taste. I only know this, because it tastes like a dry cherry stout I ruined by infection last year. Still went okay with my cinnamon bourbon lamb chops, though, because of the overwhelming spice that a cheap cooking bourbon presents. Ah, well...

    Full disclosure, I swirled hardcore before this. I'm a shameless Heady fluffer. I wish you luck next time, friend.

    Big shout out to Matt (exitmusic00) for this porch grenade that I must say is one of the best IPA's I've ever had. For those who haven't had the pleasure of Hop Venom, seek it out!!!!

  36. Popped into the local distributor to see if they had Hopslam. They didn't, but they did have a giant tower of Nugget Nectar. I don't recall having it before although I've had most of the other regular Troegs offerings. This stuff is really good and very fresh. Oh, and I picked up one last case of Celebration Ale on closeout.
