    No picture, it's too dark in here and my iPad doesn't have a flash on it. Enjoying a Backwoods Bastard in a snifter and waiting on my guys to finish their Boy Scouts meeting.

    Heres one more. That beer is actually dated as a best by. So it was bottled sometime around early June.

    Was that a 2010 Utopias? I thought it was released every other year? (in that case, it should have been a $2 more! J/k )

    I thought they released the 2012 for the sole reason that it was the 10th anniversary? I could be wrong though.

    The 2 I still have left are both odd years, 2005 and 2009, so I *think* they've always gone that way except for the 2012 which is their 10th Anniversary release and I'm not buying it cuz it's like +$100 what I paid for the others.

    It's probably older than that 'cause Great Lakes puts a recommended "Best By" date on their bottles. I'm not sure how far out they date them but either way that bottle gets a big "ewwwwwww"!!!

    First time having this. It is nice to have a canned Saison option, even better when it is a pretty tasty one.

    Photobucket's updated their website and suddenly I'm over my space limit! WTF is that? Started deleting some photos which may compromise some images in my older posts - really aggravating :mad: *hostility ensues* ...
    Not really inclined to pay them for more space at this point - maybe when I'm feeling less hostile...

    So, Flickr for now, I guess :rolleyes:

    *hostility subsides*
    ...due in no small part to these great beers! :D

    Ah, Mother England...
    Started off with this after dinner (dessert, if you will):
    Fuller's London Porter - a classic...

    But then I faced this dilemma:

    Went with (as if I could go wrong lol):
    Thomas Hardy's Ale
    Later, to finalize my night and ease my ills (lol - again, as if I had to choose between the two - of course I was gonna have both!):
    Fuller's Vintage Ale
    Notice I went with the pint glass instead of a tulip - I figured a pint bottle of beer ought to go in a pint glass.

    These are all damn good beers.

    C'mon, man! Not lazy at all, you need to pump it up to the next level: "I was in a wood shop accident and now I'm left with two hooks. Worse yet, the following day I got my leg caught in a C-Clamp accident and lost my leg, now, when I walk on the beach my trail leaves a print and a dot. That was a REALLY BAD week!!!!"

    (Now that sounds better than "lazy"!! Sales 101. Ha!)
