    Split a bottle of Cab barrel aged Below Decks. The wine barrel treatment works well with the English barleywine, accentuating the dark fruits with slight tartness and oak.

    My girlfriend is drinking a homebrewed coconut porter, reportedly "the best beer [she's] had in [her] life."

    I nodded, pleased with the compliment, and the ability to keep these to myself.

    Congrats! I love your avatar - I saw HH in person once, I was eating lunch in an empty dining room of the Outback Steakhouse on Clearwater Beach with a buddy when none other than this towering man, the Hulk, and his children walk in and sit the next booth over to have lunch, it was a humbling experience.

  11. Started the night with a Bells Midwestern Pale Ale. I love some of Bells beers, but man oh man, why can't they make a decent Pale Ale. This one is about as bad as their last Pale Ale.

    Followed that with a 21st Amendment Bitter American. Pretty good!

    The jury is still out. It was good, but I think its missing something.

    It's a well done DIPA, pretty nice balance between citrusy and piney/resinous notes and the sweet malts. Goes down really easy for almost 9%, I'd probably go a bit below the average rating at like a 90 because it didn't blow me away and I would have liked a bit more citrus bite and a touch less syrupy sweetness.

    Yeah, until her beer journey progresses, then be prepared to defend the fort unless your coconut porter is so outstanding it beats out BCS! ( :eek: )

    Was in Portland today and happened to stop by the brewery. Managed to pick these two beauties up. Also got to try the FV13 which was incredible as well.
