    It seems cold here in SoCal (I know it's not) so I'm having a UNITA Sea Legs Baltic Porter. Pretty fantastic.
  4. Dorothy Goodbody's Our Glass, which I found to be far better than the 79 it rates on this site. Also a 2-year old Obovoid and a new Facist Pig. All in all, a good night.

    Holy hell I forgot how good this was. Haven't had it in over a year but I need to start buying it more often.

    Spring House Planet Bean Coffee Stout. A very well done, coffee forward beer. Can't wait to try the PB&J I picked up the other day.

    I gave Sucks a lower than rDev review myself. The Lagavulin 12yr cask strength is very good too.

    Very tasty stout. Love the plum flavors and the earthy Belgian yeast. Well done Boulevard, well done.

    Rerate night/cleaning out the closet cellar a bit.

    Giving this a second chance again; pleasantly enjoyable offering, but I've had far better in Brown country

    Damn awesome stuff as expected. But honestly did not impress me as much as I wanted, and I fucking love Doppelbocks. Need to go get some aged stuff.

    This was great stuff. huge hoppiness with some slight astringency but this was so damn drinkable. Hoppy Pilsners are always good stuff.

    So damn good! This officially showed me the importance of proper cellaring. The first time I had it, was pretty bad and was purchased in a warm store. This one was purchased in a refrigerated environement; then cellared correctly. Big difference. The hop flavor and yeast ester balance was damn good.

    With the Espresso IRS coming in the gates this year, time to get rid of this one. Aged nicely, the yeast got a little more hold on the flavor; but it was still as robust as IRS ever was. Anise doesnt bother me at all unlike some of you guys. Very nice stuff as expected.

    I personally love it, but you should just say "Sucks sucks." and call it a night.

    NO INFECTION! That beer is great. It's so young that would be really hard to detect any way.
  24. :eek: Who the heck cares? ( It was just bottled and the bottles never last very long on any shelves so quit 'yer pretentious whining! :p )
  25. You rock, dad! (I love those same times with my kids as well!)

  38. Listening to Miles Davis the Complete Live at the Plugged Nickel 1965 while sipping on a FW16. Nothing like the second great quintet and an amazing beer.

  39. $26 is a total rip-off. Milk every bottle of that sixer and don't buy another one from that same place.

  40. Tonight, I had one of the most amazing beer nights I've had in my young beer career. After working as a server from 3-10, my friend, whom I haven't seen in a year, called me to come to a party a block away from my house. I obviously went to said party and caught up with my old friend. I didn't know the hostesses, and I didn't know many people at the party. However, about 20 minutes into my time there, Abby, a hostess, brings out a couple bottles of bourbon county stout, one of them being CHERRY RYE. I naturally inquire about said bottles and she says, "Oh yeah my boss just gave me these and I was gonna try them with Chris." (she works at Chicago Magazine as an editorial intern or something, I don't know Chris.) Anyway, I asked if I could have a taste and explained the background and nature of cherry rye. She obliged, thankfully, and I had an amazing time tasting this wonderful beer.
    ...even out of a plastic cup at a party. :)
