    Speaking of Barleywines and floaties, Avery Samael's!!!!! Had it a few months back and there was a ton of stuff floating in that awesomely dense liquid.

    Insanity is definitely a great barleywine to have on hand though1

    Still as excellent as last years, probably my 3rd favorite BB stout ever.

    Any "infection" tastes going on? Heard a nasty rumor... If not, sounds great! I've only had one Elevation beer (Downpour) but it was very enjoyable :)

    I'm drinking 1/24th of the top case in this pile. Man, it was torture buying this over my lunch hour and waiting until after 6:30 for my first taste. The crisp Chicago winter weather chilled it nicely in my trunk, though.

    Oil Man tasted fine to me. On the lighter, dryer and less sweet side for BA stout. Downpour might be the best beer they've made.

    This is tasting good, different, but good. Reminds me of an aged Double Crooked Tree. This might be peace out for me. Cheers!!!

  23. Been snowing all day here 9 inches at the airport.. Shattered the record held since the 1800s.. Hard to believe. All in all till the wind started out of the North wasnt bad. Got some drifts working now . Will be interesting to see what the AM brings.. All this is moving East and colliding with the storm over the E. Seaboard which where the real shit is hitting the fan !!!

    If your in to Belgians what so ever, give Apis a try. One of the better American Quads for sure. Downpour has taken it's shelf space at most liquor stores but it will come back around.

    I walked to a craft beer bar in Lowell after visiting my girlfriend at work... had Baxter Stowaway IPA on tap, then Founders Breakfast Stout followed by Mayflower Winter Oatmeal Stout to see how it compared. Walked home in the snow to drink a 12 oz Nugget Nectar, a 750 mL bottle of Lost Abbey Avant Garde and my first glass of the winter of Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout... about to venture back out into the snow in a couple hours!

  29. I'm one of the select few who doesn't care for Sucks, but Lagavulin 16-year is hands down my favorite single malt ever! I really want to get my hands on a 30-year.

  33. I was thinking about BVDL and Black Note but then I realized that I completely forgot about Damon and BA Speedway. Too hard to pick favorites with all these great beers.

    Started with a Hopfish. Just okay.
    Then a Philly Pale Ale. I love it.
    Followed by a Manayunk DIPA.
    Then Neshaminator.
    [​IMG]

    Followed by a 60 min. I usually love it but it was awful tonight. Tasted like onions.

    The gf had a Palm Ale.

  35. agreed, thats why i try to rank them by format. For some reason I find that helps.

    Starting to get a bit tipsy now. Couldn't sleep so I got up and drank a bomber of Hardywood Singel, now I just decided it would be good to make a B&T out of Bittersweet Valentine and Cafe Royale.......and it tastes f'in AMAZING!!!!
     
  37. By format (12oz) then it's definitely Black Note and then this.

    Insanity got me so sick last weekend drinking this but damn was it worth the ride down
     
  39. Can't argue with that, but i'd probably switch them. Granted, they are right there next to each other; neck and neck.
